Animals tend to evolve toward larger size over time, study finds
Does evolution follow certain rules? If, in the words of the famed evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould, one could "rewind the tape of life", would certain biological trends reemerge? Asked another way: ...
Stay or stray? Study delves into sexual behaviour
Scientists said Wednesday they had amassed the first evidence to back theories that people fall into two broad categories—promiscuity or faithfulness—when it comes to sex.
One good turn: Birds swap energy-sapping lead role
Migrating birds 'share the pain' of the arduous task of leading a v-formation, so that they can then take turns saving energy by following in another bird's wake, a new study shows.
Study shows pre-human ancestors adapted to metabolize ethanol long before humans learned about fermentation
Iguanas evolved one-way lungs surprisingly like those of birds, study finds
Whether birds are breathing in or out, air flows in a one-directional loop through their lungs. This pattern was unexpected and for decades, biologists assumed it was unique to birds, a special adaptation ...
