  1. 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.

    Correlated evolution between repertoire size and song plasticity predicts that sexual selection on song promotes open-ended learning

    Cristina M Robinson et al.
    A longer birdsong-learning window evolves in response to sexual selection for song complexity and is associated with faster evolution of song performance characteristics.

    Plant defense phenotypes determine the consequences of volatile emission for individuals and neighbors

    Meredith C Schuman et al.
    Both the frequency of sesquiterpene-emitting individuals and the defense capacity of individual plants determine the consequences of sesquiterpene volatile emission for individuals and their neighbors in populations of the wild tobacco Nicotiana attenuata.

    Environment determines evolutionary trajectory in a constrained phenotypic space

    David T Fraebel et al.
    Experimental evolution shows that when selection acts on two traits constrained by a trade-off, the direction of phenotypic evolution depends on the environment.

    On cross-frequency phase-phase coupling between theta and gamma oscillations in the hippocampus

    Robson Scheffer-Teixeira, Adriano BL Tort
    Phase-locking of hippocampal theta and gamma waves has been proposed to support memory formation, but an analysis using robust statistical methods finds no convincing evidence for the phenomenon.

    Local genetic context shapes the function of a gene regulatory network

    Anna Nagy-Staron et al.
    The phenotype of a gene regulatory network depends both qualitatively and quantitatively on the local genetic context of its individual components and cannot necessarily be predicted solely from network's topology.

    Eco-evolutionary dynamics of nested Darwinian populations and the emergence of community-level heredity

    Guilhem Doulcier et al.
    Artificial selection on communities drives the evolution of interactions and establishes community-level inheritance.

    Pyphe, a python toolbox for assessing microbial growth and cell viability in high-throughput colony screens

    Stephan Kamrad et al.
    An open-source python package for phenotype analyses provides a versatile, modular and user-friendly solution to determine complementary fitness-related traits from large-scale assays of microbial colonies.

    Length regulation of multiple flagella that self-assemble from a shared pool of components

    Thomas G Fai et al.
    In the microbe Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a disassembly rate which depends on flagellar length provides an effective method to regulate the length of its two flagella.

    Adaptation of olfactory receptor abundances for efficient coding

    Tiberiu Teşileanu et al.
    A model of efficient coding by olfactory neurons explains context-dependence observed in the effect of perturbations to the olfactory environment.
