    Mass enhances speed but diminishes turn capacity in terrestrial pursuit predators

    Rory P Wilson et al.
    Increased mass enhances speed but compromises turning capacity in pursuit predators; this has widespread ramifications for the best strategies for predators and prey during chases according to their relative masses.

    Monosynaptic premotor circuit tracing reveals neural substrates for oro-motor coordination

    Edward Stanek IV et al.
    Retrograde tracing of the neural circuits that control movement of the jaw and tongue reveals how shared premotor neurons help to ensure coordinated muscle activity.

    The golden mimicry complex uses a wide spectrum of defence to deter a community of predators

    Stano Pekár et al.
    A mimetic complex composed of at least 140 species of ants, wasps, spiders, true bugs and treehoppers, all with conspicuous golden bodies, has been discovered.

    Human premotor areas parse sequences into their spatial and temporal features

    Katja Kornysheva, Jörn Diedrichsen
    Neuroimaging provides novel insights into how the motor system represents sequences of actions by automatically separating their spatial and temporal features for flexible skill production.

    Epigenetic age-predictor for mice based on three CpG sites

    Yang Han et al.
    Site-specific DNA methylation analysis at three CG dinucleotides by pyrosequencing provides a reliable measure for epigenetic aging of mice.

    Subtle selectivity in a pheromone sensor triumvirate desynchronizes competence and predation in a human gut commensal

    Johann Mignolet et al.
    A new cell–cell communication system in Streptococcus salivarius, a human gut commensal, discriminates between close signaling molecules to specifically produce bacteriocin-based antimicrobials and disconnects it from foreign DNA acquisition.

    Object vision to hand action in macaque parietal, premotor, and motor cortices

    Stefan Schaffelhofer, Hansjörg Scherberger
    The cortical grasping circuit separates but shares visual and motor processes to transform object attributes into appropriate hand movements.

    Evolutionary consequences of intra-patient phage predation on microbial populations

    Kimberley D Seed et al.
    Bacterial viruses are an unexpected ‘third party’ that imposes a strong predatory pressure on a bacterial pathogen during the natural course of infection in humans.

    Social communication of predator-induced changes in Drosophila behavior and germ line physiology

    Balint Z Kacsoh et al.
    Reproductive behavior is conferred from experienced to naïve Drosophila as a behavioral social strategy allowing naïve groups to anticipate a threat from a predator.

    Herbivory-induced volatiles function as defenses increasing fitness of the native plant Nicotiana attenuata in nature

    Meredith C Schuman et al.
    A 2-year field study has demonstrated that volatile compounds produced by plants when they are attacked by herbivores act as defenses by attracting predators to the herbivores and increasing the reproduction of the plants.
