Mapping the 'Conflict Zones' Between Sprawl and Biodiversity - CityLab

By 2030, the world is expected to add another billion people or so, bringing the total population to roughly 8.5 billion. And with humans becoming increasingly urban, sprawl will only get worse, taking up precious space that wild birds, mammals, plants ...

Why Do We Behave the Way We Do? New Research Reveals ... - Newsweek

The simple worm sometimes behaves differently from others with the exact same genes—an evolutionary advantage that confounds basic genetics, according to a new study. Researchers studying why the tiny creatures behave a certain way at different life ...
