Researchers have little information about how grown lionfish might invade or move to new waters because tracking small marine organisms poses diffculties. One way to investigate their movements, though, is to study stable isotopes in their ear-bones.

 
 
 
 
A legal framework for vector-borne diseases and land use

15 July 2019, ESA

While many emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) are preventable through informed protective measures, the way that humans alter our landscape – such as for farming and urban growth – is making this task more difficult. Human-induced land use change is the primary driver of EIDs, including those carried by mosquitoes such as malaria, dengue, Zika, EEE, and West Nile. Why, then, does land-use planning often fail to recognize the effects these changes have on the risk of spreading disease?
