Effects of sampling regime on the mean and variance of home range size estimates.
A new procedure, based on a variance components analysis using generalized mixed effects models, is proposed, which concludes that effort should be directed at marking more individuals monitored over long periods at the expense of the sampling rate per individual.
Genome-wide evidence for speciation with gene flow in Heliconius butterflies.
Overall these results show that species divergence can occur in the face of persistent and genome-wide admixture over long periods of time.
An African origin for the intimate association between humans and Helicobacter pylori
It is established that anatomically modern humans were already infected by H. pylori before their migrations from Africa and demonstrate that H.pylori has remained intimately associated with their human host populations ever since.
Filial cannibalism in teleost fish

The intersexual conflict arising from attempts of the non‐cannibal sex to minimize the cost of filial cannibalism is discussed, together with the potential effect of this behaviour on the operational sex ratio at a population level.
An Aboriginal Australian Genome Reveals Separate Human Dispersals into Asia
It is shown that Aboriginal Australians are descendants of an early human dispersal into eastern Asia, possibly 62,000 to 75,000 years ago, which is separate from the one that gave rise to modern Asians 25, thousands of years ago.
A geographically explicit genetic model of worldwide human-settlement history.
A dynamic genetic model of human settlement history coupled with explicit geographical distances from East Africa, the likely origin of modern humans is presented, which suggests that coupling analytical genetic models with explicit demography and geography provides a powerful tool for making inferences on human-settlement history.
The genome of a Late Pleistocene human from a Clovis burial site in western Montana
The genome sequence of a male infant recovered from the Anzick burial site in western Montana is sequenced and it is shown that the gene flow from the Siberian Upper Palaeolithic Mal’ta population into Native American ancestors is also shared by the AnZick-1 individual and thus happened before 12,600 years bp.
Genomic evidence for the Pleistocene and recent population history of Native Americans
The results suggest that there has been gene flow between some Native Americans from both North and South America and groups related to East Asians and Australo-Melanesians, the latter possibly through an East Asian route that might have included ancestors of modern Aleutian Islanders.
