Medicine & TechnologyScientists investigate the mechanism on how some invasive species, such as the green crab, had shown extensive dispersal in the last decade as they adapt across environmental gradients despite lacking genetic diversity.
Cane toads are warty, poisonous amphibians that usually eat insects. However, they will also eat almost anything, such as reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals. With no natural predators, their number starts to explode.
For countless generations, horses and donkeys have been among the most important domesticated animals for mankind - and a new study reveals how they have been helping their fellow animals with an unusual behavior.
While Australia's native kangaroos are not considered threats to local vegetation and land conservation, the species' species' increased overgrazing could start changing this condition, according to a new study.
Since the introduction of European and African honeybees to the Americas, there have been numerous hybrid species. Scientists used genetic sequencing to determine how genetics made an impact on their survival, habitat, and advantageous traits.
An invasive species of jellyfish was recently spotted several times across beaches in North Carolina. Factors such as global warming and the movement of ships may have brought the jellyfish further north than usual.
Climate change has caused many species to migrate into new territories as well as habitat shifts. Flour beetle experiments reveal how numerous species are affected by changes in habitat and competitive species.
Invasive species pose a serious threat to native species and ecosystems around the world. A recent study predicts that thousands of invasive species will be accounted for worldwide by 2050 if biosecurity and international trade laws aren't stricter.
