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.
Point of View: The writing on the wall

Vascular Biology: Severing umbilical ties
Jessica E Wagenseil, Karen M Downs
High levels of proteins called proteoglycans in the walls of umbilical arteries enable these arteries to close rapidly after birth and thus prevent blood loss in newborns.
Scientist and Parent: Planning during pregnancy
Bridget M Kuehn
Colleagues, funders and institutions can support pregnant researchers in a variety of ways.
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.
