To support urgent research to combat the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the editorial teams at Nature Research have curated a collection of relevant articles.
September 14th 2019 marks 250 years since the birth of explorer-naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. This collection celebrates his life and legacy by bringing together articles on ecology, global change, and geoscience from across six Nature journals.

In this Focus issue, we pull together papers from across the journal's broad disciplinary scope to understand the state of knowledge on cooperation and highlight future research directions.
