    • Adult axolotls can regenerate original neuronal diversity in response to brain injury 

      Amamoto, Ryoji; Huerta, Violeta Gisselle Lopez; Takahashi, Emi; Dai, Guangping; Grant, Aaron K; Fu, Zhanyan; Arlotta, Paola (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd, 2016)
      The axolotl can regenerate multiple organs, including the brain. It remains, however, unclear whether neuronal diversity, intricate tissue architecture, and axonal connectivity can be regenerated; yet, this is critical for ...
    • The evolution of non-reproductive workers in insect colonies with haplodiploid genetics 

      Olejarz, Jason W; Allen, Benjamin; Veller, Carl; Nowak, Martin A (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd, 2015)
      Eusociality is a distinct form of biological organization. A key characteristic of advanced eusociality is the presence of non-reproductive workers. Why evolution should produce organisms that sacrifice their own reproductive ...
    • Evolution of the head-trunk interface in tetrapod vertebrates 

      Sefton, Elizabeth M; Bhullar, Bhart-Anjan S; Mohaddes, Zahra; Hanken, James (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd, 2016)
      Vertebrate neck musculature spans the transition zone between head and trunk. The extent to which the cucullaris muscle is a cranial muscle allied with the gill levators of anamniotes or is instead a trunk muscle is an ...
    • Testing the Münch hypothesis of long distance phloem transport in plants 

      Knoblauch, Michael; Knoblauch, Jan; Mullendore, Daniel L; Savage, Jessica A; Babst, Benjamin A; Beecher, Sierra D; Dodgen, Adam C; Jensen, Kaare H; Holbrook, N Michele (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd, 2016)
      Long distance transport in plants occurs in sieve tubes of the phloem. The pressure flow hypothesis introduced by Ernst Münch in 1930 describes a mechanism of osmotically generated pressure differentials that are supposed ...
