Global warming good news for some bird species
Birds that migrate over short distances appear to be benefiting from global warming, but it is at the expense of long distance migrant bird species, Swedish research has found.
Global warming threatens alpine plants
Melting glaciers are spectacular indicators of climate change, but when it comes to biodiversity in the Alps, scientists are more concerned about the fate of fragile mosses and flowers.
Gorillas make a splash
Male gorillas in lowland Africa have an unusual and possibly unique way of intimidating their sexual rivals - they perform an elaborate water splashing display.
Gray Squirrels' Faulty Memories Help Forests-Study
