Carlos Lobo

Theory Biosci 2021 Jun 6. Epub 2021 Jun 6.

Archives Husserl, UMR 8547, CNRS, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, France.

Through a presentation and a commentary of Husserl's little-known analyses of mathematization in the life sciences and on morphology, this article proposes three goals. First, it aims at establishing the real meaning and results of the critical analyses of the mathematization in natural sciences and of exactness put forth as a standard of scientific knowledge that we read in the Krisis. As a result, it will appear that these analyses belong to the perspective of a project of a formal morphology, understood as an extension of mathesis. Read More

Leveraging natural history biorepositories as a global, decentralized, pathogen surveillance network.

PLoS Pathog 2021 06 3;17(6):e1009583. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

University of New Mexico, Department of Biology and Museum of Southwestern Biology, Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States of America.

The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic reveals a major gap in global biosecurity infrastructure: a lack of publicly available biological samples representative across space, time, and taxonomic diversity. The shortfall, in this case for vertebrates, prevents accurate and rapid identification and monitoring of emerging pathogens and their reservoir host(s) and precludes extended investigation of ecological, evolutionary, and environmental associations that lead to human infection or spillover. Natural history museum biorepositories form the backbone of a critically needed, decentralized, global network for zoonotic pathogen surveillance, yet this infrastructure remains marginally developed, underutilized, underfunded, and disconnected from public health initiatives.

Sensors (Basel) 2021 May 12;21(10). Epub 2021 May 12.

P&O Maritime Logistics, Parkmore Business Park West, Galway, Ireland.

The "Little MonSta" benthic lander array consists of 8 ROV-deployable (remotely operated vehicle) instrumented lander platforms for monitoring physical and chemical oceanographic properties and particle sampling developed as part of the MMMonKey_Pro program (mapping, modeling, and monitoring key processes and controls in cold-water coral habitats in submarine canyons). The Little MonStas offer flexible solutions to meet the need to monitor marine benthic environments during a historically unprecedented time of climate-driven oceanic change, develop an understanding of meso-scale benthic processes (natural and man-made), and to calibrate geological environmental archives. Equipped with acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs), sediment traps, nylon settlement plates and homing beacons, the compact and upgradable lander platforms can be deployed by ROVs to precise locations in extreme terrains to a water depth of 3000 m.
