Climate Change is Likely to Worsen the Public Health Threat of Diarrheal Disease in Botswana
TLDR
The authors' results identify significant health-climate interactions, highlighting the need for an escalated public health focus on controlling diarrheal disease in Botswana and suggesting that forecasted climate change increases in temperature and decreases in precipitation may increase dry season diarrheals disease incidence with hot, dry conditions starting earlier and lasting longer.

Determining scientific impact using a collaboration index
TLDR
The A-index is used to compute the weighted sums of peer-reviewed publications and journal impact factors, denoted as the C- and P-indexes for collaboration and productivity, respectively, finding that these axiomatically weighted indexes better capture a researcher’s scientific caliber. Expand
Age, musth and paternity success in wild male African elephants, Loxodonta africana
TLDR
A genetic paternity analysis of a well-studied population of wild African elephants showed that older males had markedly elevated paternity success compared with younger males, suggesting the possibility of sexual selection for longevity in this species. Expand
A neuronal signature for monogamous reunion
TLDR
It is posited that the features of the partner-approach ensemble and its expansion upon bond formation potentially make it a key neuronal substrate associated with bond formation and maturation. Expand
Blister Rust Incidence in Treeline Whitebark Pine, Glacier National Park, U.S.A.: Environmental and Topographic Influences
Abstract Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) is a foundation and keystone species of upper subalpine and treeline ecosystems throughout the western United States and Canada. During the past severalExpand
Social networks in African elephants
TLDR
This model isolates several key components of the social behavior of wild African elephants using a bilinear mixed effects model, proposed by Peter Hoff, and is flexible enough to include predictors of pairwise affiliation, such as kinship, which allows large-mammal ecologists to test assumptions about elephant social structure and to develop new theories of why and how elephants interact.

A neuronal signature for monogamous reunion
TLDR
It is posited that the features of the partner approach ensemble and its expansion upon bond formation make it a potential key substrate underlying bond formation and maturation. Expand
Pit Latrine Fecal Sludge Resistance Using a Dynamic Cone Penetrometer in Low Income Areas in Mzuzu City, Malawi
TLDR
This study indicates that the use of a penetrometer test in the field prior to pit latrine emptying may facilitate the selection of appropriate pit emptying technology. Expand
Recent Developments and Their Implications for the Future of Academic Statistical Consulting Centers
I describe how developments over the past 25 years in computing, funding, personnel, purpose, and training have affected academic statistical consulting centers and discuss how these developments andExpand
Improving Self-Efficacy in Statistics: Role of Self-Explanation & Feedback
Novice problem solvers often fail to recognize structural similarities between problems they know and a new problem because they are more concerned with the surface features rather than theExpand
