Point of View: The sustainable professor
Elizabeth S Haswell
Responsible agricultural practices provide a useful lens through which to consider the lives and careers of researchers.
Research: Gender bias in scholarly peer review
Markus Helmer et al.
Gender-bias in peer reviewing might persist even when gender-equity is reached because both male and female editors operate with a same-gender preference whose characteristics differ by editor-gender.

The Natural History of Model Organisms: Genetic, evolutionary and plant breeding insights from the domestication of maize
Sarah Hake, Jeffrey Ross-Ibarra
Comparing maize to its wild ancestor teosinte advances our understanding of how it and other cereal crops evolved, and also identifies the genetic variation that can contribute to important agricultural traits.
Meta-Research: Questionable research practices may have little effect on replicability
Rolf Ulrich, Jeff Miller
Although questionable research practices inflate false positive rates, they have little effect on replicability because they also increase power.
Research Culture: A survey of travel behaviour among scientists in Germany and the potential for change
A survey of scientists working in Germany reveals that most already travel to conferences in a sustainable manner and would be willing to make further changes to protect the environment.
The Natural History of Model Organisms: The house sparrow in the service of basic and applied biology
Haley E Hanson et al.
The house sparrow, one of the most ubiquitous birds in the world, is now used extensively in studies across disciplines in the life sciences.
The Natural History of Model Organisms:
, an 'instant' fish from an ephemeral habitat
Martin Reichard, Matej Polačik
The turquoise killifish from ephemeral pools in African savannah combines extremely short lifespan with a standard vertebrate body plan – ideal attributes for a laboratory animal.

The Natural History of Model Organisms: The untapped potential of medaka and its wild relatives
Leon Hilgers, Julia Schwarzer
Studies of medaka and other ricefishes in the wild could provide insights in fields such as evolutionary biology, development and cancer research.
Point of View: Predictive regulation and human design
Why does the human regulatory system, which evolution tuned for small satisfactions, now constantly demand 'more'?
Thermoregulation: Bugs battle stress from hot blood
Joshua B Benoit, David L Denlinger
A heat exchange mechanism in the head of kissing bugs helps to prevent stress and regulate their temperature while they feed on warm blood.
