How iconic emperor penguins survived last ice age

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 genetic origins of modern Europeans may be more complicated that previously thought.

Study finds new hypothesis behind ice age caused 2.6 mn years ago

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.

Ancient ocean currents may have changed pace and intensity of ice ages

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.

Human hunters wiped out Ice Age animals

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.

Comet not behind mass extinction at Ice Age end: Study

Archaeologists have debunked the cosmic-impact theory that a comet sparked climate change at the end of the Ice Age, causing mass animal extinction.

Antarctic moss brought back to life after being trapped in ice for 1,500 years

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.

Volcanoes helped plant, animal species survive ice ages

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.

Large ancient mammals survived on flowering plants: Study

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.

What led to Ice Age megafauna extinctions

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.

Researchers have found that climate change, instead of hunting by humans, was responsible for the extinction of the woolly mammoth.

World entering a period of global cooling, warn researchers

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”.
