    Quantification of gene expression patterns to reveal the origins of abnormal morphogenesis

    Neus Martínez-Abadías et al.
    Quantitative analyses associating the morphology of developing organs with dynamic gene expression patterns can reveal biological phenomena that cause malformations and malfunction but remain elusive to traditional qualitative assessments.

    Novel neuroanatomical integration and scaling define avian brain shape evolution and development

    Akinobu Watanabe et al.
    More integrated brains in crown birds evolved through a mosaic assembly of new evolutionary and developmental dynamics across neuroanatomical regions that occurred along the dinosaur-bird transition.

    Selection for increased tibia length in mice alters skull shape through parallel changes in developmental mechanisms

    Colton M Unger et al.
    Artificial selection for increased tibia length in mice made their skulls longer, narrower, and flatter, suggesting that even distant skeletal regions can evolve as correlated responses to selection acting locally.
    1. Evolutionary Biology

    The evolution of the vestibular apparatus in apes and humans

    Alessandro Urciuoli et al.
    The morphology of the inner ear distinguishes major anthropoid clades and enables the proposal of various shared-derived features for apes as a whole, lesser apes, and great apes and humans.
    1. Evolutionary Biology

    A multidisciplinary approach to a unique palaeolithic human ichnological record from Italy (Bàsura Cave)

    Marco Romano et al.
    Traces of crawling locomotion, including children younger than 3 years old, are documented for the first time in the global human ichnological record.

    Cell volume changes contribute to epithelial morphogenesis in zebrafish Kupffer’s vesicle

    Agnik Dasgupta et al.
    During Kupffer's vesicle morphogenesis, cell volume anisotropy impacts cell shape changes.

    Plasticity and evolutionary convergence in the locomotor skeleton of Greater Antillean Anolis lizards

    Nathalie Feiner et al.
    A comparative and experimental research refutes the controversial hypothesis that plasticity played a major role in the convergent evolution of Anolis ecomorphs.
    1. Evolutionary Biology

    Rapid diversification associated with a macroevolutionary pulse of developmental plasticity

    Vladislav Susoy et al.
    Evolutionary novelty is promoted by a macroevolutionary pulse of developmental plasticity, but is enhanced by secondary fixation, which permits developmental character release and further morphological exploration.

    Ancient DNA reveals the lost domestication history of South American camelids in Northern Chile and across the Andes

    Paloma Diaz-Maroto et al.
    aDNA revealed a model of domestication where an ancient guanaco population no longer exists, the loss of the ancient vicuña genetic variation in the modern populations, and frequently interbreeding practices.
    1. Neuroscience

    Ultrastructural comparison of dendritic spine morphology preserved with cryo and chemical fixation

    Hiromi Tamada et al.
    Cryo preservation of brain tissue reveals dendritic spines with thinner necks compared to those prepared with chemical fixation.
