    Chimps threatened by climate change

    Climate modelling projects that chimpanzee populations in central Cameroon will experience drastic reductions in suitable habitat over the course of this century; habitat for other West African populations is predicted to remain largely unchanged.

    What makes a social insect sleep around?

    The reason why multiple mating evolves in social insects has long been a puzzle; new research shows that, at least in social wasps, its evolution is strongly linked to ecological factors such as colony size.

    Seasonal migration in the H3N2 influenza virus

    New models of the seasonal drivers of the H3N2 influenza virus suggest that focusing on connectivity, like air travel, will not be sufficient to predict likely outbreaks; factors affecting migration and persistence must also be taken into account.

    When breeding for length, put no weight on mass

    Longshanks mice, a line of laboratory mice specially bred for longer hind-limbs, showed a substantial increase in limb length over just 14 generations despite restraints caused by genetic correlations with body mass, which did not increase.

    The scale of keratin evolution in birds

    A new analysis, utilising new phylogenetically diverse sequences produced by the Avian Genome Consortium, shows that diversification of beta keratin genes has been crucial in the evolution of feathers and the resulting adaptation of birds into multiple niches.

Scope

BMC Evolutionary Biology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of molecular and non-molecular evolution of all organisms, as well as phylogenetics and palaeontology.

BMC Evolutionary Biology is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.

BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.

Peerage of Science

BMC Evolutionary Biology supports Peerage of Science, a new initiative to provide more recognition for reviewers and to expedite the reviewing process through shared and fair reports. BMC Evolutionary Biology welcomes manuscripts that have been reviewed through Peerage of Science and so please do indicate on your cover letter if your manuscript has already been reviewed here.
