    Small fish populations accumulate harmful mutations that shorten lifespan

    A genetics study in wild turquoise killifish shows that small populations accumulate mutations that shorten lives, helping scientists better understand how lifespan can evolve among populations.

    Nurture, not nature, influences prey preferences in great apes

    A study in bonobos provides evidence of group-specific hunting preferences that cannot be explained by environmental or genetic factors.

    Scientists discover earliest fossil evidence of an insect lichen mimic

    The discovery that a Jurassic moth lacewing mimicked a co-occurring fossil lichen to promote survival predates modern lichen-insect associations by 165 million years.

    Scientists shed new light on pollen tube growth in plants

    New findings reveal the unexpected role of an enzyme called KATANIN in guiding the growth of pollen tubes in flowering plants.

    Accumulating extra genome copies may protect fly brain cells during aging

    To prevent cell death caused by DNA damage, adult brain cells in fruit flies produce extra copies of their chromosomes.

    How zebrafish maintain efficient and fair foraging behaviours

    New findings reveal how social interactions among zebrafish allow them to forage efficiently and promote equality within groups under a variety of environmental conditions.
  2. eLife launches Executable Research Articles for publishing computationally reproducible results

    Authors with a published eLife paper can now enrich their work with embedded code blocks and computed outputs to make their results more transparent, interactive and reproducible.

    Species competition and cooperation influence vulnerability to climate change

    Some species work together to maximise their fitness at suboptimal temperatures in the presence of competitors, making them especially vulnerable to habitat destruction in the face of climate change.

    Low ‘good’ cholesterol levels found in Latin America and the Caribbean

    New findings suggest low levels of HDL cholesterol are the most common kind of lipid disorder in Latin America and the Caribbean.
