Garbage mounds left by prehistoric humans might have driven the formation of many of the Florida Everglades' tree islands, distinctive havens of exceptional ecological richness in the sprawling marsh that are today threatened by human development.
The latest evidence of the dominant role humans play in changing Earth's climate comes not from observations of Earth's ocean, atmosphere or land surface, but from deep within its molten core.
Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have discovered new details supporting the idea that mass extinction is linked to a cooling climate.
A team of researchers conducting an extensive study of growth rings in trees say there could be a link between the rise and fall of ancient civilizations and sudden shifts in Europeâ€™s climate.
The magnitude of climate change during Earthâ€™s deep past suggests that future temperatures may eventually rise far more than projected if society continues its pace of emitting greenhouse gases, a new analysis concludes.
Scientists at the University of Leicester are using an unusual resource to investigate ancient climatesâ€“ prehistoric animal urine.
