A recent study based on long-term Finnish monitoring data indicates that small birds produce more offspring after warm springs and summers. Cold weather means there are fewer insects to eat while reducing the chances of nesting ...
A study led by The University of Western Australia has found plants have far more complex and developed senses than we thought with the ability to detect and respond to sounds to find water, and ultimately survive.
Scientists find that the space bullethead parrotfish use is influenced more by competition than by fear of predators
It's a fish-eat-fish world out in the ocean, and prey species usually fear the predators that would make them into a tasty snack.
When exposed to potential predators as an embryo, the invasive American bullfrog becomes harder to kill when it becomes a tadpole, according to a new study by Oregon State University researchers.
Wild barramundi populations are likely to be at risk under ocean acidification, a new University of Adelaide study has found.
Habitat alteration due to forest clearing and climate change threaten wildlife populations throughout the globe. To better understand the interacting effects of habitat degradation and climate on bird populations, researchers ...
Cover crops have been promoted for their abilities to reduce erosion and retain or enhance soil nutrients. Now there is evidence that they can significantly reduce weed seeds from entering the soil seed bank.
