  • Tracking extinction risk trends and patterns in a mega-diverse country: A Red List Index for birds in Colombia. 

    Renjifo, Luis Miguel; Amaya-Villarreal, Angela María; Butchart, Stuart H M (2020-01-27)
    Monitoring trends in the extinction risk of species is important for tracking conservation effectiveness. The Red List index (RLI) reflects changes in aggregate extinction risk for sets of species over time (a value of ...
  • National mitigation potential from natural climate solutions in the tropics. 

    Griscom, Bronson W; Busch, Jonah; Cook-Patton, Susan C; Ellis, Peter W; Funk, Jason; Leavitt, Sara M; Lomax, Guy et al. (2020-01-27)
    Better land stewardship is needed to achieve the Paris Agreement's temperature goal, particularly in the tropics, where greenhouse gas emissions from the destruction of ecosystems are largest, and where the potential for ...
  • Functionalized Double Strain-Promoted Stapled Peptides for Inhibiting the p53-MDM2 Interaction. 

    Sharma, Krishna; Strizhak, Alexander V; Fowler, Elaine; Xu, Wenshu; Chappell, Ben; Sore, Hannah F; Galloway, Warren R J D et al. (2020-01-07)
    The Sondheimer dialkyne reagent has previously been employed in strain-promoted double-click cycloadditions with bis-azide peptides to generate stapled peptide inhibitors of protein-protein interactions. The substituted ...
  • Whole-chromosome hitchhiking driven by a male-killing endosymbiont 

    Martin, Simon H.; Singh, Kumar Saurabh; Gordon, Ian J.; Omufwoko, Kennedy Saitoti; Collins, Steve; Warren, Ian A.; Munby, Hannah et al. (Public Library of Science, 2020-02-27)
    Neo-sex chromosomes are found in many taxa, but the forces driving their emergence and spread are poorly understood. The female-specific neo-W chromosome of the African monarch (or queen) butterfly Danaus chrysippus presents ...
