Cover ImageCover: A deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus) watching a moonrise over the Blackfoot Valley, MT, USA. There are numerous physiological differences between deer mice that are native to different elevations, but it is not known whether these are genetically based or due to phenotypic plasticity. Cheviron et al. (pp. 1160−1166) and Tufts et al. (pp. 1167−1173) measured the contributions of plasticity to altitude-related physiological differentiation. They found a high degree of plasticity in blood−O2 transport capacity, but, relative to lowland natives, highland mice exhibited a significantly higher thermogenic capacity under hypoxia after controlling for acclimation effects.

Celebrating 100 years of discovery
We are proud to be celebrating 100 years of discovery in Journal of Experimental Biology. Visit our centenary webpage to find out more about how we are marking this historic milestone.
Craig Franklin launches our centenary celebrations
Editor-in-Chief Craig Franklin reflects on 100 years of JEB and looks forward to our centenary celebrations, including a supplementary special issue, a new early-career researcher interview series and the launch of our latest funding initiatives.
Looking back on the first issue of JEB
Journal of Experimental Biology launched in 1923 as The British Journal of Experimental Biology. As we celebrate our centenary, we look back at that first issue and the zoologists publishing their work in the new journal.
Biology Communication Workshop: Engaging the world in the excitement of research
We are delighted to be sponsoring a Biology Communication Workshop for early-career researchers as part of JEB’s centenary celebrations. The workshop focuses on how to effectively communicate your science to other researchers and the public and takes place the day before the CSZ annual meeting, on 14 May 2023. Find out more and apply here.
Mexican fruit flies wave for distraction
Dinesh Rao and colleagues have discovered that Mexican fruit flies vanish in a blur in the eyes of predatory spiders when they wave their wings at the arachnids, buying the flies time to make their escape.
