Microbiome: Taming the beasts inside
Erica P Ryu, Emily R Davenport
Changes in diet associated with domestication may have shaped the composition of microbes found in the guts of animals.
Social groups buffer maternal loss in mountain gorillas
Robin E Morrison et al.
In mountain gorillas, as in certain human populations, relationships between group members can act as a social buffer, breaking the link between maternal loss, increased social adversity, and decreased fitness.
Regularities in species’ niches reveal the world’s climate regions
Joaquín Calatayud et al.
Similarities in climatic niches of terrestrial vertebrates indicate the Earth's climate regions, which differ among groups and from previous plant-based climate classifications.
Climate Classification: Exploring a new way to think about climate regions
Barnabas H Daru
A new system for classifying climates emerges from modeling the environmental conditions that 26,000 species of tetrapods experience in their home range.
Microbiology and Infectious Disease
Three-dimensional biofilm colony growth supports a mutualism involving matrix and nutrient sharing
Heidi A Arjes et al.
Novel high-throughput co-culture assays reveal how the spatial structure of colony biofilms provides opportunities for nutrient and matrix sharing and may drive the evolution of cooperative behaviors.
Volatile DMNT directly protects plants against
by disrupting the peritrophic matrix barrier in insect midgut
Chen Chen et al.
The natural volatile component DMNT protects plants from insect attacks by damaging peritropic matrix barriers in insect midguts, paving a promising way for the molecular breeding of plant protection.
Genetics and Genomics
Education and Outreach: March Mammal Madness and the power of narrative in science outreach
Katie Hinde et al.
Hypothetical battles between animals can be used to interest the general public in biology.
A remote sensing derived data set of 100 million individual tree crowns for the National Ecological Observatory Network
Ben G Weinstein et al.
A first continental data set of tree crown predictions is derived across the United States for the National Ecological Observatory Network.
Proteomics reveals synergy between biomass degrading enzymes and inorganic Fenton chemistry in leaf-cutting ant colonies
Morten Schiøtt, Jacobus J Boomsma
Leaf-cutting ants use their fecal fluid to vector enzymes produced by their fungal symbiont to degrade plant biomass with a combination of degradation enzymes and Fenton chemistry.
Pleiotropic mutations can rapidly evolve to directly benefit self and cooperative partner despite unfavorable conditions
Samuel Frederick Mock Hart et al.
