    No general relationship between mass and temperature in endothermic species

    Kristina Riemer et al.
    Data analysis of a large number of species indicates that a negative temperature-mass relationship is not common among species, which has been an ecological assumption for over a century.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: From molecular manipulation of domesticated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to survival in nature

    Severin Sasso et al.
    Dubbed the 'green yeast', the model alga C. reinhardtii has profoundly advanced many areas of biology, but much remains to be learnt about its life in the wild.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Peromyscus mice as a model for studying natural variation

    Nicole L Bedford, Hopi E Hoekstra
    The deer mouse (Peromyscus) has emerged as a model system for studying many aspects of biology, supported by extensive historical knowledge of its fascinating and varied natural history.

    Ecology and evolution of viruses infecting uncultivated SUP05 bacteria as revealed by single-cell- and meta-genomics

    Simon Roux et al.
    Single-cell amplified genome sequencing uncovers virus-host interactions in uncultivated sulfur-oxidizing bacteria with relevance to coupled biogeochemical cycling in marine oxygen minimum zones.

    The lost world of Cuatro Ciénegas Basin, a relictual bacterial niche in a desert oasis

    Valeria Souza et al.
    At Cuatro Ciénegas, the ancestral niche conditions of the ancient shores of Laurentia persisted along with its microbial communities that have been coevolving for a very long time.

    Travel fosters tool use in wild chimpanzees

    Thibaud Gruber et al.
    Travel has a major influence on tool use in wild chimpanzees, suggesting that tool use reduced travel costs during hominid evolution.

    Oldest skeleton of a fossil flying squirrel casts new light on the phylogeny of the group

    Isaac Casanovas-Vilar et al.
    Flying squirrels may have originated earlier than previously thought and remained unchanged for almost 12 million years.
