Characteristics passed between generations are not decided solely by DNA, but can be brought about by other material in cells, new research shows.
Rising global temperatures could increase the amount of carbon dioxide naturally released by the world's oceans, fuelling further climate change, a study suggests.
Coastal defences could be designed to better withstand powerful storms triggered by climate change, a study of wave dynamics suggests.
Monitoring the migration routes of wild birds could help to provide early warning of potential bird flu outbreaks, experts say.
Scientists have provided a solid foundation for an alternative theory to help explain how the early universe took shape.
Machine learning can predict strains of bacteria likely to cause food poisoning outbreaks, research has found.
Efforts to protect endangered species could be helped by fresh insights into how parenting affects the survival chances of inbred animals.
