    It is a common cause of arguments – but next time you bicker over the heating, you can use evolution to back you up. Scientists have discovered female members of species are naturally drawn to warmer temperatures because of an in-built 'evolutionary difference'. Researchers in Israel studied 13 bird and 18 bat species to determine if the animals displayed geographical...

    The rise of the dinosaurs was driven by major volcanic eruptions and 'mega monsoons' more than 230 million years ago, a new study claims. Researchers at the University of Birmingham analysed sediment and fossil plant records from a lake in the Jiyuan Basin in northern China.  Chemical signatures in the records, suggestive of pulses of volcanism, correlated with environmental changes...

    One-third of all shark and ray species are 'threatened with extinction' due to overfishing, according to a new study. The findings, which span eight years, show that the number of sharks, rays and chimaera – a group known as chondrichthyan fish – threatened with extinction have doubled to 32.6 percent since 2014. Eight years ago, 24 percent of species were estimated as threatened....
