Dams are often built to control floods, but on certain kinds of rivers they may make big deluges worse, a new study finds.

But for millennia, certain communities around the world have formed a different sort of bond—one where animals are more like business partners than pets. Dolphins herd fish for fishermen , for example, and some African tribes work with birds to find honey .
