• Hugh McGregor and Atticus Fleming reveal for the first time a deadly interaction between cats, wildfire and feral herbivores.
• Sea cucumbers are highly valued in jars and poorly valued on reefs. Kennedy Wolfe, Hampus Eriksson and Maria Byrne report on lessons not learned in managing sea cucumber fisheries.
• Byrony Horton goes fungal to probe the roots of decline in eucalypt forests.
• Surprising though it may seem, foxes and cats can contribute to ecological stability, says ecologist Jeff Yugovic.
