    Behavioural diversity of bonobo prey preference as a potential cultural trait

    Liran Samuni et al.
    Bonobo groups that share overlapping ranging areas and engage in regular social exchange show "behavioural group identity" of hunting techniques in the absence of local ecological variation.

    Eighteenth century Yersinia pestis genomes reveal the long-term persistence of an historical plague focus

    Kirsten I Bos et al.
    The analysis of 18th century Y. pestis genomes reveals a bacterial lineage that might be responsible for the 400-year period of European plague epidemics from the Renaissance through early modern times.

    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.

    Regulation of the PI3K pathway through a p85α monomer–homodimer equilibrium

    Lydia WT Cheung et al.
    The p85α homodimer plays a role in the PI3K pathway by regulating PTEN function.

    The developmental relationship between teeth and dermal odontodes in the most primitive bony fish Lophosteus

    Donglei Chen et al.
    Teeth and dermal odontodes diverge from the same set of founder odontodes, demonstrating they are modified subsets of the same system, and both oral and dermal epithelial have patterning capacity.

    Circuit mechanisms encoding odors and driving aging-associated behavioral declines in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Sarah G Leinwand et al.
    Neurotransmission pathways from primary to secondary neurons encode odor and underlie age-related sensory behavioral declines.

    Sex-specific effects of cooperative breeding and colonial nesting on prosociality in corvids

    Lisa Horn et al.
    A systematic experimental comparison of prosocial behavior in eight corvid species reveals sex-specific effects of cooperative breeding and colonial nesting, thereby adding important new insights regarding the evolution of prosociality.
