About the cover

The evolutionary origin of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum has been traced to a fellow primate, probably the result of a single host transfer event. Genetic analysis of thousands of fecal samples from African apes shows that the parasites from western gorillas — rather than those in chimpanzees or bonobos — are most closely related to the human form. The cover shows a western lowland gorilla. Picture credit: George Logan/Corbis
