In this post, we take a brief look at how climate change affects wildlife as one species thrives while the other falls victim and no longer exists.

If there is indeed a shift going on, it seems to be more in the rhetoric of the animal exhibition industries than in public comfort (or discomfort) with seeing large animals in captivity.

The landmark deal between 27 First Nations, environmentalists, forest industry, and government preserves 85 percent of old-growth in one of the world's great forests.

A new five-year study that I have been involved in shows that when people directly benefit from lions, they become more tolerant of their faults.

A study of butterflies suggests that when a species adapts, other parts of its genetic make-up can be linked to that adaptation, limiting diversity in the population.

New research suggests a new mechanism for how sexual displays of red beaks and plumage might be 'honest signals' of mate quality.

When it comes to air humidity insects possess dedicated sensory systems that detect changes in water vapor in the air. This "sixth sense" for humidity has no direct parallels in big land mammals such as us.

Introduction
The science of living things holds a special fascination for human beings, as we strive to understand our place in the seemingly endless array of life on our planet. Research into agricultural and plant science, ecology, animal science and behavior, aquatic and marine science, organismal biology, entomology, and evolution continues to shape both our technology and our fundamental knowledge of ourselves. Elsevier’s foundational and leading-edge content in these areas — including award-winning encyclopedias of fish physiology, animal behavior, and insects — continues to enhance scientific comprehension of the living systems we depend on.
