Summary Navigation requires the integration of many sensory inputs to form a multi-modal cognitive map of the environment, which is believed to be implemented in the hippocampal region by spatially tuned cells [ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 ]. These cells encode various aspects of the environment in a world-based (allocentric) reference frame. Although the cognitive map is represented in allocentric coordinates, the environment is sensed through diverse sensory organs, mostly situated ...

Summary The wings of butterflies and moths generate some of the most spectacular visual displays observed in nature [ 1 , 2 , 3 ]. Particularly striking effects are seen when light interferes with nanostructure materials in the wing scales, generating bright, directional colors that often serve as dynamic visual signals [ 4 ]. Structural coloration is not known in night-flying Lepidoptera, yet here we show a highly unusual form of wing coloration in a nocturnal, sexually dimorphic moth, Eudocima...

Summary Garcia and Dunn [1] raise some interesting and valuable points regarding our recent paper in Current Biology [2]. As Garcia and Dunn [1] point out, cross-species variation in vocal and anatomical relations allows for the identification of relevant outliers from the body size — fundamental frequency (f0) regression. However, this depends on the premise that the chosen or available f0 and body size values are typical of the species. A motivation for our study [2] was in part to improve the...

Summary Since the Late Paleozoic, forests have become distributed worldwide and significantly changed the Earth’s climate and landscapes, but the record of forests is rare in the Devonian (419–359 Ma in age) when they first appeared. From the Upper Devonian (Famennian with the age of 372–359 Ma) of Xinhang, Anhui, China, we report a very large in situ forest, which includes locally dense stands of lycopsid plants. The Xinhang forest is monospecific with a small tree lycopsid Guangdedendron gen. ...

Summary African rainforests support exceptionally high biodiversity and host the world’s largest number of active hunter-gatherers [ 1 , 2 , 3 ]. The genetic history of African rainforest hunter-gatherers and neighboring farmers is characterized by an ancient divergence more than 100,000 years ago, together with recent population collapses and expansions, respectively [ 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 , 12 ]. While the demographic past of rainforest hunter-gatherers has been deeply characterized...

Summary Severe marine heatwaves have recently become a common feature of global ocean conditions due to a rapidly changing climate [ 1 , 2 ]. These increasingly severe thermal conditions are causing an unprecedented increase in the frequency and severity of mortality events in marine ecosystems, including on coral reefs [ 3 ]. The degradation of coral reefs will result in the collapse of ecosystem services that sustain over half a billion people globally [ 4 , 5 ]. Here, we show that marine heat...

Summary The fossils preserved in the Rancho La Brea “tar” seeps in southern California span the past ∼50,000 years and provide a rare opportunity to assess the ecology of predators (e.g., the American lion, sabertooth cats, cougars, dire wolves, gray wolves, and coyotes), including clarifying the causes and consequences of the terminal Pleistocene extinction event. Here, a multi-proxy approach elucidates dietary responses of carnivorans to changing climates and megafaunal extinctions. Using samp...

Summary Rhodopsins, the major light-detecting molecules of animal visual systems [ 1 ], consist of opsin apoproteins that covalently bind a retinal chromophore with a conserved lysine residue [ 1 , 2 ]. In addition to capturing photons, this chromophore contributes to rhodopsin maturation [ 3 , 4 ], trafficking [ 3 , 4 ], and stabilization [ 5 ], and defects in chromophore synthesis and recycling can cause dysfunction of the retina and dystrophy [ 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 ]. Indications that opsin apoprote...
