The survival of all animals and insects, from wolves to bees, depends upon their ability to find the source of odors, which is a challenge when wind disperses and obscures their source. Past research has shown that animals and insects navigate their way to these targets by sensing the inten

Jeholornis was a raven-sized bird that lived 120 million years ago, among the earliest examples of dinosaurs evolving into birds, in what's now China. The fossils that have been found are finely preserved but smashed flat, the result of layers of sediment being deposited over the years. That

Washington [US], July 23 (ANI): Researchers from Cornell University have revealed the first evidence that dogs' sense of smell is connected with their vision and other distinctive regions of the brain. It reveals fresh information about how dogs perceive and move across space.
Washington [U.S], July 21 (ANI): In a series of studies over more than 20 years, evolutionary biologists have demonstrated that paper wasps, despite their tiny brains, have an impressive capacity to learn, remember and make social distinctions about others.
