Treating color patterns in a geometric morphometrics framework reveals rapid rates of color evolution that are explained by a combination of intrinsic organismal features (color variation among patches) and geography within a cosmopolitan radiation of birds.

High-throughput measurements of simplified bacterial communities find that when multiple species jointly inhibit a focal species of interest, their individual effects do not add up, but are dominated by the strongest single-species effect.
The mathematical model incorporating new parameters explains multimodal distributions in escape direction (i.e., multiple preferred escape trajectories), which are previously observed in various animal taxa.
