    A single clonal lineage of transmissible cancer identified in two marine mussel species in South America and Europe

    Marisa A Yonemitsu et al.
    A transmissible cancer that arose in a marine mussel spread from a single animal to become a global pathogen affecting two other mussel species in both Europe and South America.

    'Palaeoshellomics’ reveals the use of freshwater mother-of-pearl in prehistory

    Jorune Sakalauskaite et al.
    Ancient proteomes from tiny shell ornaments were successfully characterised for the first time, showing the unexpected use of mother-of-pearl from local riverine molluscs in both coastal and inland prehistoric sites.

    Migration confers winter survival benefits in a partially migratory songbird

    Daniel Zúñiga et al.
    Testing of fitness-related benefits in migratory population of European blackbirds offers confirming predictions of theoretical models on the evolution and maintenance of migration.

    Ancient role of sulfakinin/cholecystokinin-type signalling in inhibitory regulation of feeding processes revealed in an echinoderm

    Ana B Tinoco et al.
    Starfish feed by everting their stomach out of their mouth over prey and, interestingly, this unusual feeding mechanism is inhibited by substances similar to hormones that regulate feeding in humans.

    Global gradients in intertidal species richness and functional groups

    Jakob Thyrring, Lloyd S Peck
    No discernible latitudinal diversity gradient in rocky intertidal α-diversity as local-scale physical and biological processes outweigh global-scale environmental gradients.

    Echinoderms provide missing link in the evolution of PrRP/sNPF-type neuropeptide signalling

    Luis Alfonso Yañez-Guerra et al.
    Discovery of a novel neuropeptide signalling system in a deuterostome invertebrate reveals the evolutionary origin of prolactin-releasing peptide and its relationship with neuropeptides in protostome invertebrates.
