The Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) and the University of WA (UWA) are calling on volunteer 'citizen scientists' to help determine if the range of one of WA's most well-known flora genera—the Banksia—is contracting ...
Environmental scientists have a new tool for studying the responses of species to climate change. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has made it possible to analyze enormous numbers of short pieces of DNA very quickly, and ...
Climate scientists are gleaning valuable information about snowfall and droughts from errant satellite signals once considered a nuisance.
Despite a bitter U.S. cold snap, the globe is rushing hell-bent toward its warmest year on record with last month setting the fifth monthly heat record of the year.
Scientists should study pseudoscience – see what the pseudoscientists are up to and perhaps (for a laugh) try a few pseudostudies themselves.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has been at the forefront of climate science, launching satellites that take the pulse of Earth's land, oceans and atmospheric systems, gathering data on climate, weather ...
Environmental scientists are being urged to broaden the advice they give on global climate change, say experts who are also frustrated that decision makers are not taking enough action.
If scientists want the public to trust their research suggestions, they may want to appear a bit "warmer," according to a new review published by Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
Last month was the hottest August on record for global average temperatures over land and ocean surfaces, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Thursday.
