    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.

    Antimicrobial peptide expression in a wild tobacco plant reveals the limits of host-microbe-manipulations in the field

    Arne Weinhold et al.
    The attempt to manipulate a microbiome in planta to study the ecological consequences under field conditions leaves plants and their microbes surprisingly unimpressed.

    5α-cyprinol sulfate, a bile salt from fish, induces diel vertical migration in Daphnia

    Meike Anika Hahn et al.
    A fish-derived bile salt was shown to act as interspecific infochemical, inducing the widespread predator avoidance behavior diel vertical migration at picomolar concentrations in freshwater zooplankton of the genus Daphnia.

    Tuning movement for sensing in an uncertain world

    Chen Chen et al.
    Animals work in a world full of surprises, where using energy to position sensors proportional to the location's expected information avoids the pitfalls of positioning them at the information maxima.

    '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.

    Genetic dissection of the Transcription Factor code controlling serial specification of muscle identities in Drosophila

    Laurence Dubois et al.
    Lineage-specific regulatory loops involving evolutionarily conserved myogenic Transcription Factors control muscle identity specification in Drosophila.

    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.

    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.

    An ancient germ cell-specific RNA-binding protein protects the germline from cryptic splice site poisoning

    Ingrid Ehrmann et al.
    Cell division by meiosis during sperm production depends on expression of an RNA-binding protein that prevents abnormal RNA-processing pathways.
