The beautiful photo on the November Cover was taken by photographer Martin Oeggerli, and shows the single-celled eukaryote Euglena gracilis, that swims via an anterior flagellum and uses a paraflagellar body and red stigma (a red eyespot) to respond to light gradients. In the article "Demographic stochasticity and resource autocorrelation control biological invasions in heterogeneous landscapes", in this issue the authors performed range expansion experiments with E. gracilis in landscapes with different distributions of light, a resource for this photosynthetic protist, and showed that statistical properties of such distributions control the speed of invasion.
