    Efforts to manage non-native taxa – such as the common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) in New Zealand, here shown in its native Australia – can be complicated when those species exhibit charismatic qualities. In the August issue of Frontiers, Jarić et al. discuss how the “charisma” of certain invasive alien species may affect their likelihood of introduction, their depiction in the media, and their acceptance by society.

    In a transcontinental study, Pal et al. found that giant goldenrod (S. gigantea) appears to have rapidly evolved to grow larger in Europe, but that translates into much poorer performance when brought back home to North America. Their results are published in the August issue of Ecology.

    Martin et al., in the July issue of Ecosphere, report on a multi-season study of 19 bison herds and nearly 800 bison across the Great Plains from Saskatchewan to Texas, using a thermal imaging camera to measure heat transfer between bison and their environment. The authors found that increasing ambient heat loads decreases growth rates and thus decreases body size of bison.

    Male-only parental care evolved multiple times among Neotropical glassfrogs. Delia et al. found that male care evolved in association with maternal changes to egg clutches that impact embryos’ need for care. Their findings are presented in the August issue of Ecological Monographs.
