While many of us have been working from home this summer, a secretive activity has been going on in full swing across campus: Several species of insects and plants have been acting out fascinating plays of interactions and mutual interdependence.
A new study combines evolutionary genomics from coronavirus samples with computer-simulated epidemics and detailed travel records to reconstruct the spread of coronavirus across the world in unprecedented detail.
University of Arizona researchers studied the evolution of the body sizes of frogs and their tadpoles. They found that the two life stages do not evolve completely independently of each other as previously thought.
The evolution of colorful feathers shines light on the missing link in evolution by natural selection, according to new University of Arizona research
Dr. Bronstein, University Distinguished Professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, has been elected president of the American Society of Naturalists. She will serve as president-elect in 2021 and president in 2022.
A new study reveals that plants and animals are remarkably similar in their responses to changing environmental conditions across the globe, which may help explain how they are distributed today and how they will respond to climate change in the future.
University of Arizona researchers studied recent extinctions from climate change to estimate the loss of plant and animal species by 2070.
Protecting large animals such as elephants and whales, and large plants like the sequoias, has a disproportionate positive impact on the health of the planet and resilience to climate change.
A study tracing acoustic communication across the tree of life of land-living vertebrates reveals that the ability to vocalize goes back hundreds of millions of years, is associated with a nocturnal lifestyle and has remained stable.
University of Arizona-led research found that trees in which isoprene production was genetically suppressed did not suffer ill effects in terms of photosynthesis or biomass production.
