Latest Environmental science Stories
A long held belief says that oxygenation of the atmosphere and oceans were a pre-requisite for the evolution of complex life forms. However, the latest study suggests that the first animals helped oxygenate the world's oceans.
Reducing the size of the Lake Erie "dead zone" to acceptable levels will require cutting nutrient pollution nearly in half in coming decades, at a time when climate change is expected to make such reductions more difficult.
Tulane University has announced that it is offering a $1 million prize to the researcher or entrepreneur who devises the best plan to combat annual “dead zones” in lakes and oceans.
The Arctic as we know it may not exist as climate change is threatening the polar biome’s unique biodiversity and landscape, according to a new report from a large international team of scientists.
An international team of scientists tracks how fast and in which direction local climates — and species — have shifted
Raff will serve as Reclamation's Scientific Integrity Officer – ensuring that the agency follows the Department of the Interior’s Scientific and Scholarly Integrity Policy while overseeing
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In a desert that was once an ocean, 35 fossilized bodies waited patiently for 250 million years to tell their story.
RnRMarketResearch.com adds “World Consumer Water Treatment Systems to 2017” to its store.
A team of Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) scientists created maps of habitat corridors connecting protected areas in the tropics to incorporate biodiversity co-benefits into climate change mitigation strategies.
Ever since the nineteenth century scientists have recognized that some regions contain more species than others, and that the tropics are richer in biodiversity than temperate regions.
Water pollution is the contamination of bodies of water including rivers, oceans, lakes, aquifers and groundwater. Water pollution is when pollutants are discharged directly or indirectly into a body of water without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds. Water pollution affects the plants and organisms that reside in these bodies of water. In almost all of the cases the effect is damaging not only to individual species and populations, but to the natural biological communities as...

Environmental science is a science that contains a wide range of scientific disciplines. These disciplines are grouped together based on the natural environment which they encompass and interact with. These sciences include physical, chemical, and biological components. Environmental science provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the environmental systems. The most common way environmental science is studied is through the work of one individual or small team drawing on the...
