Scientists have discovered what seems like a new form of plant communication between a "vampire" plant and its prey.
Syracuse University professor Sam Van Aken spent nine years growing a single tree.
It's not going to cause massive worldwide epidemics

The ongoing Ebola outbreak is the worst in history, but one of the two researchers who first discovered the disease in 1976 says he thinks it's unlikely that the current outbreak could spread beyond West Africa, even if someone carrying the disease w
Now that's a toothy grin! Fearless photographer gets dangerously close to great white sharks at feeding time - WITHOUT a safety cage.
Tons of research shows that our adult behavior stems from what we experienced as kids.
The bad news is that we may not be aware that many states have created biobanks funded by genetic material left over from our screening tests, and, even more surprising, our specimens may be used for purposes we do not fully understand or for which w
Los Angeles, CA—A scientist was terminated from his job at a California State University after discovering soft tissue on a triceratops fossil, and then publishing his findings.
won't be fought over the issue of money, per se, but over living to age 60 versus living to 120 or more. Will anyone just accept that the haves get two lives while
As the father of 12-week-old twins, I was intrigued to see a new paper has been published looking at the brain changes associated with fatherhood.
In a recent press release by the Alberta Beekeepers Commission, it was announced that a Canada-wide health surveillance study of the honeybee will take place over the next four years.
Chimpanzees use their hands to say "follow me," "stop that" or "take this," according to new research seeking to translate the sophisticated messages flowing back and forth. Previous research revealed our nearest genetic relatives use
Thus the restoration of Eden does include a key role in the optimization of the overall animal kingdom that becomes central while protecting the interests of humanity. The idea of the lion laying down with the lamb is no longer far fetched and almost
A new mammal discovered in the remote desert of western Africa resembles a long-nosed mouse in appearance but is more closely related genetically to elephants, a California scientist who helped identify the tiny creature said on Thursday.
The mechanisms behind bacterial infectious disease used to be simple. The invader would enter the body, a fight would ensue with the immune system, an antibiotic would be prescribed and the patient would heal.
The strange story of the teddy bear, and what it reveals about our relationship to animals
Warning: Chemical Found in Most Shower Gels and Shampoos Can Increase Risk of Preemie Births
The number of methods of mind control has proliferated as funding for research has expanded.
In the space between order and chaos, a zone usually described with the mathematics of impending avalanches and crystallizing liquids, scientists are finding new rules for life.
We Could Be Heading Toward A Catastrophic Decline In Population, Oxford Professor Says
Describes the genome of a different comb jelly (there are 150 species) and its authors claim that the idea of sponges losing their nervous system has it all wrong. Instead, nerves evolved twice.
Since the first Mariner probes reached the Red Planet in the 1960s, it’s become clear just how very alien Mars is and how hard it is to find parallel examples of possible Martian life on Earth.

On a farm about six miles outside this gambling town, Jason Chamberlain looks over a flock of about 50 smelly sheep, many of them possessing partially human livers, hearts, brains and other organs. The University of Nevada-Reno researcher talks matte
Do our smells make us sexy?
The DNA of all life on Earth is made up of different combination of the same two DNA base pairs — all life, that is, except for the new mutants living in one lab at an institute in Southern California. The project is even being lead by a bald profess
Until the past few decades, neuroscientists had one way to plumb the human brain: wait for disaster to strike people and, if the victims pulled through, see how their minds worked differently afterward.
The first living organism to carry and pass down to future generations an expanded genetic code has been created by American scientists, paving the way for a host of new life forms whose cells carry synthetic DNA that looks nothing like the normal ge
Researchers from the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) have shown that injections of a protein dubbed GDF11, when administered to older mice, appear to cause a reversal of many signs of aging.
