William Donald Hamilton was born in 1936 in Cairo to New Zealander parents, and was brought up in a rural and wooded part of Kent, England, where he was introduced to genetics, to a scientific sensibility that looked down on ‘mere collecting’, to mathematical biology in the shape of Mendelian segregation ratios, and to the modern study of evolution.

How government regulatory authorities in the European Union, which were initially established to provide independent scrutiny of pharmaceutical firms in the interests of public health, have become increasingly responsive to the commercial interests of the industry is explained.
An African HIV-1 sequence from 1959 and implications for the origin of the epidemic
Multiple phylogenetic analyses not only authenticate this case as the oldest known HIV-1 infection, but also place its viral sequence near the ancestral node of subtypes B and D in the major group, indicating that these HIV- 1 subtypes, and perhaps all major-group viruses, may have evolved from a single introduction into the African population not long before 1959.

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.
