A change in breeding habits and distinct genetic make up may have helped certain populations of the iconic emperor penguins survive the harsh climate during the last Ice Age, a study contends.
The Atlantic Ocean at mid-depths may have given out early warning signals - 1,000 years in advance - that the last Ice Age was going to end, says a study.
Archaeologists have discovered the remains of two Ice Age infants buried more than 11,000 years ago at a site in Alaska, which represent the youngest human remains ever found in North America.
The genetic ancestry of the earliest Europeans survived the ferocious Ice Age that took hold after the continent was initially settled by modern people, a new study has found.
A new study has revealed that much of Europe was occupied almost continuously through one of the worst ever periods of climate change and the earliest Europeans suffered the worse ice age .
The highest altitude Ice Age human occupation anywhere in the world - nearly 4,500 metres above sea level (masl) - has now been documented in the Peruvian Andes.
The genetic origins of modern Europeans may be more complicated that previously thought.
A new research has provided major latest theory that might explain the cause of ice age that covered large parts of the Northern Hemisphere 2.6 million years ago.
Researchers have long tried to explain why ice-age cycles became longer and more intense some 900,000 years ago, switching from 41,000-year cycles to 100,000-year cycles.
Large animals in Ice Age that included Sabre-toothed cats, huge kangaroos, and a leopard-sized marsupial lion became extinct because of human hunters and not climate change, says a new study.
A new study has revealed that Antarctic started losing ice sheets about 5,000 years earlier than previously thought.
Archaeologists have debunked the cosmic-impact theory that a comet sparked climate change at the end of the Ice Age, causing mass animal extinction.
Researchers from the British Antarctic Survey and Reading University have shown that moss can come back to life and continue to grow even after being frozen in Antarctic ice for over 1,500 years.
Researchers has found evidence that the steam and heat from volcanoes and heated rocks allowed many species of plants and animals to survive past ice ages.
Flowering plants may have been a critical source of nutrition for large ancient mammals, shows a new research.
A team of researchers has used DNA testing to give a unique view of the diet of large mammals which roamed the northern hemisphere in the last ice-age.
Researchers have said that the gut content from permafrozen woolly rhinos, mammoth and other extinct ice age mammals could help reveal what led to this extinction.
The fifth installement of hit animation series `Ice Age` is set to release on July 15, 2016.
Researchers have found that climate change, instead of hunting by humans, was responsible for the extinction of the woolly mammoth.
Researchers have found that the extraordinary “reverse” of global warming has led to a 60 per cent rise in ice-covered ocean, giving way to a new trend dubbed “global cooling”.
