Bad news. Bad, bad news.
It took us 175 years to spot the difference.
So rare there’s not one of them.
Unlikely discoveries hide in unlikely places.
A primitive Homo species with some surprising skills.
I don’t even want to speciate.
Welcome to the planet’s sixth major extinction — take a seat.
A tiny moth species has been named Neopalpa donaldtrumpi, becoming the first species to bear the name of the US president elect.
Large marine species are favorably lost which could disrupt marine ecosystems for millions of years.
They may be the cutest animal in the country, but we’re cooking the d’awww out of them.
Less species, more problems.
Scientists are pushing the non-publication of geographical data of new species in order to protect them from poachers.
The concepts of biodiversity and evolution are generally thought of as something that occurs in thousands, maybe millions of years – but every once in a while, scientists catch a species red handed: evolving, becoming a new species.
If you want to help protect endangered species, there’s a new app that might facilitate that. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) said Monday it’s teaming up with Sweden-based FishBrain to develop a social, free-to-use app that might make a difference for local wildlife. The app can be downloaded for Apple and Android devices. Anglers are among the most likely people to
Scientists previously misclassified a golden bat which lives in Bolivia. This new study reemphasizes the importance of museum specimens, which can be used to draw new information about species thought to be understood.
For most creatures, mortality increases sharply with age – and we typically consider this to be natural. However, other animals, such as the hermit crab, the red abalone and the hydra, a microscopic freshwater animal experience very different trends enjoying almost constant levels of fertility and mortality. For the desert tortoise, the mortality even decreases as it gets older. A
Researchers find out new species all the time, but really, when do they ever find a creature that looks like it was spawned by the fiery volcano of Mordor? Coal-black with orange-tinted toes, the new crocodile newt was identified as a different species when biologists spotted a series of differences to nearly related species. “I was asked by a curator
Diversity is one of the most shocking aspects when it comes to life on Earth, and knowing how many species walk this planet alongside us is perhaps one of the most important questions in science. However, despite major advancements being made in the field, an answer to that question is still miles away, as efforts to thoroughly sample and describe
If you ask me, one of the most interesting things regarding animal evolution is sex; the animal kingdom has expanded sex to such heights, that it is often unbelievable the kind of things some animals do. Such is the case with the androgenetic clams of the genus Corbicula. Just males – and doing fine Most animals have a male and
