Researcher Bruce Jayne at the University of Cincinnati unlocks the mechanics of the rectilinear locomotion of snakes
An international research group led by Cornell University has found that plastic trash -- ubiquitous throughout the world's oceans -- intensifies disease for coral, adding to reef peril
The Duke Lemur Center's non-invasive research on mouse lemurs, our tiny primate cousins, could help explain the initial stages of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases
New findings from the University of Oregon suggest that the Chicxulub meteorite impact set off the release of magma along seafloor ridges around the world, adding a layer of complexity to the debate on what drove a major extinction event
Accessible digital audio recordings of animal signals will make it easier for researchers to investigate a host of scientific questions, including what can scientists learn about the responses of animals to anthropogenic noise and other human activities
New research reveals that the evolution of skull shapes in the mammalian order Carnivora is influenced by much more than what a species eats
Most people see a vegetable when they see a spinach leaf, but in this lab, they see the potential to create heart tissue
National Science Foundation-funded researchers discovered that adults and nestlings of western bluebirds, mountain bluebirds and ash-throated flycatchers exposed to the persistent noise of natural gas compressors showed multiple signs of chronic stress similar to post-traumatic stress disorder in humans.
In this week's episode, we learn how infants retain information; how loud noise can affect birds; the underpinnings of snake locomotion and, finally, the existence of a hitherto unknown ancient Native American population
How did hurricanes Irma and Maria affect coral reefs in the Caribbean?
The Robotics And Rehabilitation (RoAR) Lab develops innovative robots and methods to help humans relearn, restore, or improve functional movements.
A "quantum material" that mimics a shark's ability to detect the minute electric fields of small prey has been shown to perform well in ocean-like conditions, with potential applications from defense to marine biology.
Scientists from the University of Oxford, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and New York City Audubon studied migrant bird behavior over seven years in a truly unique setting -- "Tribute in Light" in New York City
A new Florida Museum of Natural History study offers the first comprehensive overview of the surprisingly complex question of when butterflies and moths are active
Researchers found that old forests that contain large trees and a diversity of tree sizes and species may offer refuge to some types of birds facing threats in a warming climate
George Washington University evolutionary geneticist Arnaud Martin is using CRISPR Cas9, a gene editing technique, to determine how changes in the "painting gene" WntA result in different wing shapes and patterns in butterflies
The direct observation of the origin of a new species occurred during field work carried out over the last four decades by a wife-and-husband team of scientists from Princeton University on the small island of Daphne Major in the Galápagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean
A 52-million-year-old ankle fossil suggests that some of the earliest primates were adept leapers
Preliminary research by a University of California, Davis, animal scientist shows that some polar fish have been able to acclimate to warm water or to higher levels of carbon dioxide, but not to both.
Researchers have discovered that climate change, warmer temperatures and earlier snow melt are causing flowers to bloom earlier, affecting bumblebees
