Skeletal anomalies in reared European fish larvae and juveniles. Part 1: normal and anomalous skeletogenic processes
The aim was to identify the main gaps of knowledge that require to be filled, in order to precociously identify anomalous developmental patterns that lead to skeletal anomalies in reared finfish larvae and juveniles. Expand
Prey orientation and the role of venom availability in the predatory behaviour of the centipede Scolopendra subspinipes mutilans (Arthropoda: Chilopoda).
The results showed that the centipedes were highly selective, preferring to attack the head or thorax rather than the abdomen, and a major effect of venom extraction in relation to both types of prey, but with the time taken to return to a 'normal' attack rate being longer in the case of the larger prey-type, namely the locust.

Reimagining pheromone signalling in the model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
It is suggested that C. elegans pheromone signalling evolves very locally, such that there are different dialects of pherOMone signalling among ecological communities and among kin groups, and it is argued that phersomone signals may also evolve to be manipulative and dishonest. Expand

From development to evolution: the re-establishment of the "Alexander Kowalevsky Medal".
The Saint Petersburg Society of Naturalists has reinstated the Alexander O. Kowalevsky Medal, the Russian comparative embryologist whose studies on amphioxus, tunicates and germ layer homologies pioneered evolutionary embryology and confirmed the evolutionary continuity between invertebrates and vertebrates.

It is concluded that keeping research questions rather than experimental capabilities at the forefront of Evo-devo may be an antidote to any repeat of the stagnation experienced by the first group of evolutionary developmental biologists over one hundred years ago. Expand
