We explore the chemical link between asthma and eczema that has been uncovered; how a synaesthesia gene has been found; why rising levels of CO2 are affecting clown fishes' sense of smell; the evidence of a 700-million-year-old sponge which sets the clock back on evolution; how the butterfly species, Maculinea rebeli, convinces ants to look after their caterpillars; how IVF can help disentangle the effects of nature from nuture. Plus in 'Stuff and Non-Science', can you predict a child's adult height by doubling their height at 2 years?
