    Spatio-temporal associations between deforestation and malaria incidence in Lao PDR

    Francois Rerolle et al.
    Deforestation near villages is associated with short-term increases but long-term decreases in malaria incidence in Lao PDR, highlighting the influence of forest-going populations on malaria transmission in the region.

    Present-day central African forest is a legacy of the 19th century human history

    Julie Morin-Rivat et al.
    The cessation of major anthropogenic disturbances since European colonization in the forests of central Africa leads to a canopy closing, and to the disappearance of certain light-demanding tree species.

    Landscape genomic prediction for restoration of a Eucalyptus foundation species under climate change

    Megan Ann Supple et al.
    Empirical patterns of genomic and phenotypic variation across the landscape are used to develop a predictive model that will help build resilient ecological communities.

    Mapping the zoonotic niche of Ebola virus disease in Africa

    David M Pigott et al.
    Understanding where future Ebola virus outbreaks may start and the changing nature of the populations living in these places is of critical importance in helping to prepare for future outbreaks.

    Rarity is a more reliable indicator of land-use impacts on soil invertebrate communities than other diversity metrics

    Andrew Dopheide et al.
    Rarity metrics reveal pervasive negative impacts of agricultural land use on soil invertebrate communities, whereas widely-used richness and diversity metrics underestimate the magnitude of these impacts.

    Local human movement patterns and land use impact exposure to zoonotic malaria in Malaysian Borneo

    Kimberly M Fornace et al.
    Local human movement into mosquito habitats around forest edges intensifies interactions between pathogens, insects and people, increasing exposure risks to the zoonotic malaria Plasmodium knowlesi in Malaysian Borneo.

    Carbon recovery dynamics following disturbance by selective logging in Amazonian forests

    Camille Piponiot et al.
    Carbon recovery in Amazonian forests disturbed by selective logging is higher in the Guiana Shield and in the west, and is mainly shaped by the carbon gain of trees that survived the disturbance.

    The genome and phenome of the green alga Chloroidium sp. UTEX 3007 reveal adaptive traits for desert acclimatization

    David R Nelson et al.
    Euryhaline green algae utilise intracellular osmoprotectant modulation and specialised redox enzyme networks to successfully inhabit a desert coastline.

    Active invasion of bacteria into living fungal cells

    Nadine Moebius et al.
    Bacteria invade living fungal cells using secreted chitinolytic enzymes that allow for a traceless entry, as shown by microscopic snapshots.
