The ‘ghost’ moth of the Sierra de Zapalinamé

Through the Naturalista MX platform, rangers and 'citizen scientists' helped researchers describe a new species that inhabits the Sierra Madre Oriental of Coahuila and Nuevo León.

Why are the leaves of plants green?

The characteristic color of plants and vegetation on planet earth has to do with the photosynthesis process that is vital for their existence.

Elisa’s flight, a book to know how to help when sadness becomes too long

Depression is real, Elisa knows it. Daily lives with a sadness that does not want to go. She says that feeling has stuck to her inside and out. She no longer enjoys school, she gets angry easily with her classmates and at home as well.

Can horses recognize themselves in the mirror?

Although Lucía and Horsy are two fictional characters, there are scientists who have dedicated themselves to researching the intelligence of horses. Usually the animals that see themselves in the mirror react as if it were another individual: they do not recognize themselves. But in other cases, curiosity is aroused.
