Breeding Centers, Private Ranches, and Genomics for Creating Sustainable Wildlife Populations.

Bioscience 2019 Nov 9;69(11):928-943. Epub 2019 Oct 9.

Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, 2155 County Road 2008, Glen Rose, TX 76043.

Human-induced changes to environments are causing species declines. Beyond preserving habitat (in situ), insurance (ex situ) populations are essential to prevent species extinctions. The Conservation Centers for Species Survival (C2S2) is leveraging space of breeding centers and private ranches to produce "source populations"-genetically diverse reservoirs that also support research and reintroductions.

The Ethics of Eliminating Harmful Species: The Case of the Tsetse Fly.

Bioscience 2019 Feb 19;69(2):125-135. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society at Oregon State University, in Corvallis.

Wildlife species harmful to humans are often targets of control and elimination programs. A contemporary example is the tsetse fly, a vector of sleeping sickness and African animal trypanosomosis. Tsetse flies have recently been targeted by a pan-African eradication campaign. Read More

Internet Blogs, Polar Bears, and Climate-Change Denial by Proxy.

Bioscience 2018 Apr 29;68(4):281-287. Epub 2017 Nov 29.

Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science at Pennsylvania State University, in University Park.

Increasing surface temperatures, Arctic sea-ice loss, and other evidence of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) are acknowledged by every major scientific organization in the world. However, there is a wide gap between this broad scientific consensus and public opinion. Internet blogs have strongly contributed to this consensus gap by fomenting misunderstandings of AGW causes and consequences. Read More

As the sampling frequency and resolution of Earth observation imagery increase, there are growing opportunities for novel applications in population monitoring. New methods are required to apply established analytical approaches to data collected from new observation platforms (e.g. Read More
