A novel species-sorting experiment finds that phylogenetically and functionally distinct microbial communities emerge under different temperature conditions due to the resuscitation of latent diversity.

The success of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2)-based predictions of severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) host range stems from phylogenetic correlation, allowing development of scalable models which predict susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2 and other sarbecoviruses without requiring additional ACE2 sequencing.

Analysis of microbial communities in floral nectar shows that it is possible to identify an overarching factor that governs the eco-evolutionary dynamics of priority effects across multiple levels of biological organization.
