Climate change refers to long-term shifts in weather conditions and patterns of extreme weather events. It may lead to changes in health threat to human beings, multiplying existing health problems. This review examines the scientific evidences on the impact of climate change on human infectious diseases. It identifies research progress and gaps on how(More)
Although accumulated evidence has shown that biodiversity can play an important role in disease transmission and prevalence, it remains unclear how different measures of diversity based on taxonomy or function perform in predicting disease risk. In this article, we assess the relative ability of species richness, Shannon's evenness index, single functional(More)

Dengue transmission in urban areas is strongly influenced by a range of biological and environmental factors, yet the key drivers still need further exploration. To better understand mechanisms of environment-mosquito-urban dengue transmission, we propose an empirical model parameterized and cross-validated from a unique dataset including viral gene(More)
Perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) at ferro-magnetic transition metal/insulator interfaces has attracted intensive interest in the context of developing various spintronic devices. Magnetized out-ofplane magnetic tunnel junctions (p-MTJ) are now developed for spin transfer torque (STT) magnetic random access memories (STT-MRAM) applications where the(More)
The tidal flat changes of Dongsha sandbank across the West Ocean are severely influenced by Dafeng Port Construction and the large-scale activities of reclaiming land from seawaters around it. Dongsha sandbank is the second largest one with highest elevation among the radial sand ridge system offshore Jiangsu Province, so the research on the changes of the(More)
