Studying the DNA of the ancient Amborella flower is opening up new insights into the evolution of certain plants and animals.
The University at Buffalo's Dr. Victor Albert is looking deeply into the ancient origins of this Amborella and working to sequence its genome in order to better understand how life has developed on Earth.
Rising temperatures are threatening the biodiversity of the Arctic.
Dr. Hans Meltofte, senior scientist at Denmark's Aarhus University, describes the negative impact of climate change in this area as "already visible" and details the serious ecological consequences that are resulting.
A decrease in the amount of snowfall in Canada may have far reaching results.
Dr. Frederic Bouchard, post-doctoratal research fellow at Université Laval, is studying the climate models of many areas across Canada and making predictions about the ecology of the area based on his findings.

The undersea discovery of a large seep of methane in the North Atlantic may hold the key to learning a great deal about the underwater ecosystem.
Dr. Steve Ross, research professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington's Center for Marine Science, calls the ocean floor the last great frontier on Earth. His work into the depths of the Atlantic will help scientists better understand a wide variety of things about oceanic life and beyond.
