- Development and utilization of the United States gene bank collection. Of animals, that is: 1.15 million samples from 59,640 animals, representing 44 species of livestock, aquatic and insect genetic resources, 191 breeds and 369 subpopulations.
- Healthy cloned offspring derived from freeze-dried somatic cells. Another way to conserve in genebanks like the above, at least for mice.
- Genetic differentiation between coexisting wild and domestic Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus L. 1758) in Northern Eurasia. Now there’s better information to help decide how to conserve both in genebanks and outside, at least for reindeer.
- Dairying, diseases and the evolution of lactase persistence in Europe. Being able to digest milk didn’t help Neolithic people much. But not being able to digest milk during famines or plagues was really bad for them. Yeah but now we’re stuck with all that livestock.
- Signature of climate-induced changes in seafood species served in restaurants. Since 1880, the mean temperature preference of fish on Vancouver’s menus has increased by 3°C. Soon some will need genebanks, I guess. Or domestication.
- Win-win opportunities combining high yields with high multi-taxa biodiversity in tropical agroforestry. You don’t necessarily have to pay for higher vanilla yields with lower biodiversity. Good, because you can’t put everything in a genebank, I guess.
- Functional diversity of farmland bees across rural–urban landscapes in a tropical megacity. Oh look, another win-win!
- A review of management actions on insect pollinators on public lands in the United States. As in tropical megacities, removing invasives is an unalloyed good.
- Human Ecology: Special Issue on Dogs. Whether you’re a dog person or not, it’s hard to argue that any domesticated animal has engaged in a more diverse set of interactions with humans. Truly a win-win. But please, let’s not clone Fido.
