Lionfish in Florida are an underwater force to be reckoned with. The biggest threat they pose is not their venomous spines – it is the alarming speed and ferocity with which they invade new waters. 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.

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?
