    The golden mimicry complex uses a wide spectrum of defence to deter a community of predators

    Stano Pekár et al.
    A mimetic complex composed of at least 140 species of ants, wasps, spiders, true bugs and treehoppers, all with conspicuous golden bodies, has been discovered.

    The evolution of non-reproductive workers in insect colonies with haplodiploid genetics

    Jason W Olejarz et al.
    A mathematical model predicts the precise conditions for natural selection to favor the evolution of non-reproductive workers in insect colonies with haplodiploid genetics.

    Homo naledi and Pleistocene hominin evolution in subequatorial Africa

    Lee R Berger et al.
    A late Middle Pleistocene age for Homo naledi demonstrates a diversity of hominin species in Africa at this critical time in the archaeological record.

    Uncovering temporal structure in hippocampal output patterns

    Kourosh Maboudi et al.
    Machine learning models of coordinated hippocampal ensemble activity during sharp wave ripple activity encode structure that mirrors the place cell map expressed during exploration, and enable a new paradigm for analyzing and understanding this offline activity.

    The visual pigment xenopsin is widespread in protostome eyes and impacts the view on eye evolution

    Clemens Christoph Döring et al.
    The employment of xenopsin in ciliary and mixed microvillar/ciliary eye sensory cells in several protostome animals suggests high evolutionary plasticity of photoreceptors.

    Nitric oxide radicals are emitted by wasp eggs to kill mold fungi

    Erhard Strohm et al.
    To protect their food and themselves against detrimental mould fungi, the eggs of a wasp species synthesize and emit remarkable amounts of gaseous nitrogen oxides that are highly effective antimicrobials.

    Evolution of empathetic moral evaluation

    Arunas L Radzvilavicius et al.
    Empathy can evolve and foster cooperation in a game-theoretic analysis of behavior.

    Correlated evolution between repertoire size and song plasticity predicts that sexual selection on song promotes open-ended learning

    Cristina M Robinson et al.
    A longer birdsong-learning window evolves in response to sexual selection for song complexity and is associated with faster evolution of song performance characteristics.

    Theoretical tool bridging cell polarities with development of robust morphologies

    Silas Boye Nissen et al.
    Biological shapes and morphological transitions can emerge from combining directed interactions between cells with apical-basal and planar cell polarity.

    The CNS connectome of a tadpole larva of Ciona intestinalis (L.) highlights sidedness in the brain of a chordate sibling

    Kerrianne Ryan et al.
    Serial-section EM analysis uncovers the CNS connectome of a Ciona larva, the second of any entire nervous system, and exposes left-right asymmetries in its synaptic circuits.
