Issue 85:6 is now out and for the first time we have TWO In Focus papers. The First is by Pedro Jardano and takes a look at the paper by Sazatornil et al. on morphological matches and the assembly of mutualistic hawkmoth–plant networks. The second is by Shawn Wilder and Punidan Jeyasingh and they review the paper by Zhang et al. on how warming and predation risk shape stoichiometry.
Issue 85:5 is now out; the In Focus is by Associate Editor Eoin O'Gorman and takes a look at the paper by Sato et al. “A test of the effects of timing of a pulsed resource subsidy on stream ecosystems”. As always the In Focus paper and the featured paper are free for all to read.
Issue 85:4 is now out and includes a Review paper Josh Daskin and Rob Pringle “Does primary productivity modulate the indirect effects of large herbivores? A global meta-analysis. The In Focus is by Robert Ekblom and takes a bird's eye view of a deleterious recessive allele.
Issue 85:3 is now out including a Forum paper asking the question “Do animals exercise to keep fit?” by Lewis Halsey. The In Focus is by Martin Genner and analyses the paper by Freitas et al. "Temperature-associated habitat selection in a cold-water marine fish".
