    Linking spatial self-organization to community assembly and biodiversity

    Bidesh K Bera et al.
    A trait-based model of dryland vegetation uncovers the roles of spatial self-organization in maintaining biodiversity in a changing climate and offers novel ways of managing ecosystems at risk.

    Physiology and ecology combine to determine host and vector importance for Ross River virus

    Morgan P Kain et al.
    The role host and vector species play in pathogen transmission cycles is best quantified by integrating species' physiological and ecological competence.

    Evolution of pathogen tolerance and emerging infections: A missing experimental paradigm

    Srijan Seal et al.
    An integrated empirical paradigm tracing immune strategies, underlying mechanisms and infection outcomes across reservoir host-pathogen systems, their specific ecological contexts, life-history features, and coevolutionary dynamics can reveal the actual patterns and processes underlying spillover in the wild.

    Unexpected plasticity in the life cycle of Trypanosoma brucei

    Sarah Schuster et al.
    Parasite life cycles may be more flexible than traditionally thought, potentially allowing single-cell infections of insect vectors and transmission between hosts even at very low parasite densities.

    Gaps in global wildlife trade monitoring leave amphibians vulnerable

    Alice C Hughes et al.
    Almost 98% of amphibian species have no regulation on their international trade, yet as 17% (1215 species) are in trade with 45% of individuals coming from the wild, including 445 Endangered/Data Deficient species, this poses a risk to species survival.

    Castration delays epigenetic aging and feminizes DNA methylation at androgen-regulated loci

    Victoria J Sugrue et al.
    Epigenetic clocks are an accurate measure of biological aging and 'tick' slower in male sheep that are castrated.

    Major genetic discontinuity and novel toxigenic species in Clostridioides difficile taxonomy

    Daniel R Knight et al.
    The Clostridioides difficile taxonomy is characterised by major taxonomic incoherence and clear species boundaries.

    Do wealth and inequality associate with health in a small-scale subsistence society?

    Adrian V Jaeggi et al.
    Socio-economic hierarchies may be bad for health, even among people living in a relatively traditional, small-scale society in the Bolivian Amazon.
