Scientists have found that on the desolate Antarctic peninsula, nitrogen-rich poop from colonies of penguins and seals enriches the soil so well that it helps create biodiversity hotspots throughout ... read more

The deep sea is home to fish species that can detect various wavelengths of light in near-total darkness. Unlike other vertebrates, they have several genes for the light-sensitive photopigment ... read more

How Sea Level Rise Affects Birds in Coastal Forests

Saltwater intrusion changes coastal vegetation that provides bird habitat. Researchers found that the transition from forests to marshes along the North Carolina coast due to climate change could ... read more

Egg Yolk Precursor Protein Regulates Mosquitoes' Attraction to Humans

Feeding mosquitoes sugar makes them less attracted to humans, a response that is regulated by the protein vitellogenin, according to a new ... read more

Research Reveals Surprisingly Powerful Bite of Tiny Early Tetrapod

Micro-CT scanning of a tiny snake-like fossil discovered in Scotland has shed new light on the elusive creature, thought to be one of the earliest known tetrapods to develop teeth that allowed it to ... read more

Observations of herring gulls have shown how the coastal birds have developed complicated behavior to 'skin' sea creatures to make them safe to eat. Researchers think this feeding habit may ... read more

Are Otters Threatening Amphibian Populations?

The Eurasian otter typically eats fish, but amphibians, which are in global decline, are also part of its diet, especially when fish are scarce. Researchers identified bones of amphibians in otter ... read more

Low Oxygen Levels Could Temporarily Blind Marine Invertebrates

Scientists have found that low oxygen levels in seawater could blind some marine invertebrates. The results are the first demonstration that vision in marine invertebrates is highly sensitive to the ... read more
