Marine conservation: How to heal an ocean Marine protected areas are being implemented at an accelerating pace, and hold promise for restoring damaged ecosystems. But glaring shortfalls in staffing and funding often lead to suboptimal outcomes.
Biochemistry: A wine-induced breakdown A polysaccharide called rhamnogalacturonan II is a major component of some fruits, but humans rely on their gut microbiota to digest it. The microbes and processes responsible for this digestion have now been revealed.
Materials science: Chain mail reverses the Hall effect The sign of a material's charge carriers is usually reflected in the sign of the 'Hall voltage'. But for a structure inspired by chain mail, altering its geometry inverts the Hall voltage, even if the charge carriers are unchanged.

A new hypothesis of dinosaur relationships and early dinosaur evolution Analysis of a wide range of dinosaurs and dinosauromorphs recovers a sister-taxon relationship between Ornithischia and Theropoda, calling for the redefinition of all the major clades within Dinosauria and the revival of the clade Ornithoscelida.

Autism gene Ube3a and seizures impair sociability by repressing VTA Cbln1 Increasing expression of the autism-associated gene Ube3a, either alone or in combination with seizures, not only impairs sociability in mice but also reduces expression of the synaptic organizer Cbln1 in the ventral tegmental area, thus weakening glutamatergic transmission. Vaishnav Krishnan, David C. Stoppel, Yi Nong et al.
Bumblebee family lineage survival is enhanced in high-quality landscapes Analysis of three wild-caught bumblebee species shows that family lineage survival and persistence is significantly increased between successive colony cycle stages with the proportion of high-value foraging habitat near the natal colony. Claire Carvell, Andrew F. G. Bourke, Stephanie Dreier et al.
Early antibody therapy can induce long-lasting immunity to SHIV Early administration of broadly neutralizing antibodies in a macaque SHIV infection model is associated with very low levels of persistent viraemia, which leads to the establishment of T-cell immunity and resultant long-term infection control. Yoshiaki Nishimura, Rajeev Gautam, Tae-Wook Chun et al.
