    This special issue centers around Aristotelian metaphysics, construed broadly to cover both scholarly research on Aristotle’s metaphysics, as well as work by contemporary metaphysicians on Aristotelian themes. It focuses on two themes in Aristotelian metaphysics, namely essence and grounding, and their connections. A variety of related questions regarding dependence, priority, fundamentality, explanation, causation, substance, and modality also receive attention.

    In total, 7 species of heterobasidiomycetes are reported for the first time from St. Helena. A new genus Dendrogloeon (Auricularilaes) is introduced for the new species D. helenae based on both DNA and morphological data. Saccoblastia media, sp. nova, is the sole representative of the Pucciniomycotina, so far found in the study area.

    The medieval hamlet Mankby in Espoo, Southern Finland, excavated from 2007–2013, has revealed a landscape that reflects the complex development of the region – from the initial Swedish colonization to the emergence of an established medieval village, a village that was abruptly dissolved in 1556, when the freeholding peasants were forced to leave their land to the royal demesne that the Swedish king Gustavus Vasa founded on this spot. This study explores this landscape change, and the different layers in the landscape through analyse of historical maps combined with data from archaeological field work. The land use in the area gives a quite stable impression from the end of the middle ages to the enlightenment, even though a drastic change in the experienced landscape appeared when the demesne took over the land. In contrast, the medieval hamlet period from the 13th to the mid-16th century show shifts in the land use and movements within the toftland that reflects the dynamics of the medieval period and shifts in agricultural technique.

    Current Trends in Translation Teaching and Learning in 2014 This is the fifth volume of Current Trends in Translation Teaching and Learning, but the first totally electronic edition. Hence, the new name: Current Trends in Translation Teaching and Learning E. It was decided that producing a free online version is the best way to make the up-todate articles focusing on translation education available to as many people as possible. This volume has been in the making for the past year and puts forward articles that focus on many of the current themes in teaching and learning translation. It is hoped that it will reach as wide an audience as possible, so feel free to distribute it either using the link provided or as a pdf file. The first article in this volume by María Brander de la Iglesia and Jan-Hendrik Opdenhoff from the University of Granada addresses teaching retour interpreting in interpreter education. Second language metaphor translation is dealt with in the interesting article by Dermot Heaney from Università degli Studi di Milano. Designing an undergraduate economic, financial and commercial translation courses is addressed by Kenneth Jordan-Núñez from San Jorge University.2 Rudy Loock from Université Lille Nord de France and UMR 8163 du CNRS and Cindy LefebvreScodeller from the Université de Limoges have written an interesting article on refering to the dead in French obituary translation. Anikó Makkos from University of West Hungary and Edina Robin from Eötvös Loránd University contributed an article on explicitation and inplication in back-translation. This edition also includes Wang Shu-huai from Huazhong University of Science and Technology description of translation teaching in China, an area “Westerners” know little about. After a double blind review process, selected papers were published in this volume. There is also a companion website located at I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the following individuals: the writers for submitting their contributions to a blind review process, because without their courage and effort an edited collection like this would not be possible; the members of the editorial review board for their thoughtful and timely reviews. I would also like to warmly thank Ville-Veikko Jylhämäki from the University of Helsinki for his editorial assistance. His dedication to this project and keen eye have contributed to the high quality of this volume.
