(JOURNAL) [Published : Jan 01, 2024]
Globally, wildfires are increasing in extent, frequency, and severity. Although global climate change is a major driver and large-scale governance interventions are essential, focusing on governance at smaller scales is of great importance for fostering resilience to wildfires. I...
Identifying untapped legal capacity to promote multi-level and cross-sectoral coordination of natural resource governance
(JOURNAL) [Published : Nov 28, 2023]
Natural resource governance in the face of climate change represents one of the seminal challenges of the Anthropocene. A number of innovative approaches have been developed in, among others, the fields of ecology, governance, and sustainability sciences for managing uncertainty ...
Hazardous and contaminated sites within salt marsh migration corridors in Rhode Island, USA.
(JOURNAL) [Published : Apr 01, 2023]
As salt marshes attempt to migrate upland due to sea level rise, they will encounter many kinds of land development and infrastructure in highly populated, urbanized coastal communities. Hazardous and contaminated sites (HCSs) -- facilities and infrastructure that store...
Habitat and trophic niche overlap among juvenile black sea bass, tautog, and cunner: interspecific interactions amid a species geographic range expansion
(JOURNAL) [Published : Oct 05, 2023]
Juvenile black sea bass Centropristis striata populations are increasing in southern New England estuaries of the northeastern USA with possible trophodynamic effects on labrid species: tautog Tautoga onitis and cunner Tautogolabrus adspersus. In this study, we examined the abund...
Temporal and spatial relationships of CrAssphage and enteric viral and bacterial pathogens in wastewater in North Carolina
(JOURNAL) [Published : Jul 01, 2023]
Enteric disease remains one of the most common concerns for public health. Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) receive domestic wastewater from sewer catchments and represent a snapshot of the enteric diseases that are circulating within the serving population, mirroring communit...
Moving beyond the panarchy heuristic
(JOURNAL) [Published : Nov 21, 2023]
Panarchy is a heuristic of complex systems change rooted in resilience science. The concept has been rapidly assimilated across scientific disciplines due to its potential to envision and address sustainability challenges, such as climate change and regime shifts, that pose signi...
Analysis of Microcystis aeruginosa physiology by spectral flow cytometry: Impact of chemical and light exposure
(JOURNAL) [Published : Oct 27, 2023]
M. aeruginosa fluorescent changes were observed using a Cytek Aurora spectral flow cytometer that contains 5 lasers and 64 narrow band detectors located between 365 and 829 nm. Cyanobacteria were treated with different concentrations of H2O2 and then monitored afte...
Influence of cross-scale measures on neighborhood resilience
(JOURNAL) [Published : Nov 01, 2023]
The increasing severity and frequency of disasters across the USA is revealing a landscape that is not entirely prepared to cope with these exposures. Resilience as a socio-ecological concept has become progressively more important as a means of assessing and mitigating these los...
Forecasting freshwater cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms for Sentinel-3 satellite resolved U.S. lakes and reservoirs
(JOURNAL) [Published : Jan 01, 2024]
This forecasting approach may be useful for water managers and associated public health managers to predict near-term future high-risk cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms (cyanoHAB) occurrence. Freshwater cyanoHABs may grow to excessive concentrations and cause human, animal, and...
A New Approach to Predict Tributary Phosphorus Loads Using Machine Learning– and Physics-Based Modeling Systems
(JOURNAL) [Published : Jul 01, 2023]
Tributary phosphorus (P) loads are one of the main drivers of eutrophication problems in freshwater lakes. Being able to predict P loads can aid in understanding subsequent load patterns and elucidate potential degraded water quality conditions in downstream surface waters. We de...
