With an undergraduate enrollment of 4,248 and a total student enrollment of 6,141, Dartmouth is the smallest school in the Ivy League.
Researchers shed new light on dark energy, cosmic speed-up
In a new study, Dartmouth researchers rule out a controversial theory that the accelerating expansion of the universe is an illusion.
Insects' fear limits boost from climate change, study shows
Scientists often measure the effects of temperature on insects to predict how climate change will affect their distribution and abundance, but a Dartmouth study shows for the first time that insects' fear of their predators, ...
Climate warming may have unexpected impact on invasive species
Rising temperatures may be seen as universally beneficial for non-native species expanding northward, but a Dartmouth College study suggests a warmer world may help some invaders but hurt others depending on how they and ...
Discovery of cell division 'master controller' may improve understanding and treatment of cancer
In a study to be published in the journal Nature, two Dartmouth researchers have found that the protein cyclin A plays an important but previously unknown role in the cell division process, acting as a master controller to ...
Wari, predecessors of the Inca, used restraint to reshape human landscape
The Wari, a complex civilization that preceded the Inca empire in pre-Columbia America, didn't rule solely by pillage, plunder and iron-fisted bureaucracy, a Dartmouth study finds. Instead, they started out by creating loosely ...
Shedding new light on the brightest objects in the universe
A Dartmouth-led team of astrophysicists has discovered the extent to which quasars and their black holes can influence their galaxies.
Shadows and light: Researchers develop new software to detect forged photos
Dartmouth and UC Berkeley researchers have developed new software to detect faked photos, using a geometric algorithm to locate inconsistent shadows that are not obvious to the naked eye.
Researchers discover protein that helps plants tolerate drought, flooding, other stresses
A team including Dartmouth researchers has uncovered a protein that plays a vital role in how plant roots use water and nutrients, a key step in improving the production and quality of crops and biofuels.
Making memories: Practical quantum computing moves closer to reality
Researchers at the University of Sydney and Dartmouth College have developed a new way to design quantum memory, bringing quantum computers a step closer to reality. The results will appear June 19 in the journal Nature Communications.
Tracking turtles through time, study may resolve evolutionary debate
Turtles are more closely related to birds and crocodilians than to lizards and snakes, according to a study from Dartmouth, Yale and other institutions that examines one of the most contentious questions in evolutionary biology.
