Running with the Red Queen: reflections on ‘Sex versus non-sex versus parasite’
The historical background and influence of W. D. Hamilton's death is considered, as well as the scientific output of this paper, which dealt with inclusive fitness and the evolution of social behaviour.
An AIDS-like case in Greece in 1977 (short communication).
A 35-years old housewife from Crete, mother of two healthy children, was admitted for investigation of a chronic diarrhoea commencing some 6-months before admission, and was cachectic; on re-admission, she was very cachectic and dyspnoeic.

Genetic Mosaics in Strangler Fig Trees: Implications for Tropical Conservation
Single trees of six species of strangler figs in Panama were found to be made up of multiple genotypes, presumably formed by the fusion of different individuals, and how this cryptic variation affects populations depends on the flowering phonology of composite trees.
