    Although health, development, and environment challenges are interconnected, evidence remains fractured across sectors due to methodological and conceptual differences in research and practice. Aligned methods are needed ...
  • Forecasting ecosystem services to guide coastal wetland rehabilitation decisions 

    Calder, Ryan; Shi, Congjie; Mason, Sara A.; Olander, Lydia P.; Borsuk, Mark E. (Elsevier, 2019-10-01)
    Coastal wetlands provide diverse ecosystem services such as flood protection and recreational value. However, predicting changes in ecosystem service value fr0k from restoration or management is challenging because ...
  • Graphical models and the challenge of evidence-based practice in development and sustainability 

    Calder, Ryan; Alatorre, Andrea; Marx, Rebecca S.; Mallampalli, Varun; Mason, Sara A.; Olander, Lydia P.; Jeuland, Marc; Borsuk, Mark E. (Elsevier, 2020-08-01)

  • Spiculogenesis and biomineralization in early sponge animals 

    Tang, Qing; Wan, Bin; Yuan, Xunlai; Muscente, A. D.; Xiao, Shuhai (Springer Nature, 2019-07-26)
    Most sponges have biomineralized spicules. Molecular clocks indicate sponge classes diverged in the Cryogenian, but the oldest spicules are Cambrian in age. Therefore, sponges either evolved spiculogenesis long after their ...
  • Modeling Temperature Effects on Population Density of the Dengue Mosquito Aedes aegypti 

    El Moustaid, Fadoua; Johnson, Leah R. (MDPI, 2019-11-07)
    Mosquito density plays an important role in the spread of mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue and Zika. While it remains very challenging to estimate the density of mosquitoes, modelers have tried different methods to ...
