Australian scientists have uncovered an unlikely microscopic ally in the battle to reduce the amount of methane gas in the atmosphere.
Bacteria plucked from a desert plant could help crops survive heatwaves and protect the future of food, according to new research.
Autonomous airborne pollen samplers might help to provide a breath of fresh air for asthma and hay fever sufferers, according to researchers.
The mostly submerged continent has New Zealand and New Caledonia rising from its depths and was only put on the map by geologists in 2014.
Without efforts to mitigate climate change, summers spanning nearly six months may become the new normal by 2100 in the Northern Hemisphere.
Researchers have constructed a new method of quantifying just how fast the sea will react to warming, finding that former predictions have been too conservative.
Climate change is accelerating at an alarming pace — and the impacts are hard to ignore. Let's take a look at some changes to our ocean.
The survival of all species — including ours — is being threatened by loss of biodiversity and accelerating climate change in the coming decades, scientists say.
Mathematical modelling shows that continents remain weak and prone to destruction in their infancy, then progressively melt and differentiate to become stable continents.
A tumour-like coral disease is prevalent in the reef systems around the Cocos Keeling Islands, affecting the coral's ability to reproduce and grow effectively.
Continued warming of Australia's climate, an increase in extreme fire weather and rising sea levels are highlighted in the latest State of the Climate report.
Scientists have discovered what they claim is the first detached reef to be found in more than 120 years — and it's taller than some of the world's most prominent structures.
Scientists have produced what they claim is the first comprehensive global-scale analysis of terrestrial areas essential for biodiversity and climate resilience.
Sea ice across the Southern Ocean played a crucial role in controlling atmospheric carbon dioxide levels during times of past climate change.
Radiocarbon dating is set to become more accurate after an international team of scientists recalculated the technique for assessing the age of historical events and objects.
