New data on ant adaptability within their environment

...k on social organization has generated a number of predictions about how the colonies of eusocial insects, like ants and bees, could adapt to different environments. Many ants have morphologically distinct "castes," such as workers and soldiers, that specialize in different tasks within the colony. One long-stan...

A shrinking sink? Carbon fertilization may be flimsy weapon against warming

...sions, Field and his colleagues found, is that the predictions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other studies have relied on models that don't reflect some of the major processes by which carbon circulates through the environment. Field and his colleagues also have discovered in a previous st...

For scenarios that predict a minimum temperature increase of 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit, there is no significant increase in the average probability of extinction. However, in scenarios that predict a more ...

While oceanographers have identified many ocean circulation patterns, the study found that three-quarters of all biological activity in the oceans relies on this single pattern. "When we shu...
