Embracing complexity: Organicism for the 21st century
This essay attempts to define organicism, provide a brief history of its importance to experimental embryology, outline some sociologically based reasons for its decline, and document its value in contemporary developmental biology.
Malaria in Africa: Vector Species' Niche Models and Relative Risk Maps
This work provides three continent-wide maps representing the relative risk of malaria in Africa based on ecological niche models of vector species and risk analysis at a spatial resolution of 1 arc-minute, and constructs niche models for 10 malaria vector species based on species occurrence records since 1980.
Biodiversity conservation planning tools
This chapter reviews both the concepts and technical choices that underlie the development of various software tools for conservation planning, and evaluates the suitability of different algorithms for their solution.

For all of Texas, Chagas disease should be designated as reportable, as it is in Arizona and Massachusetts, and at least for south Texas, lower than N, blood donor screening should be mandatory, and the serological profiles of human and canine populations should be established.

Genetics and reductionism
- S. Sarkar
This chapter discusses types of reduction, the obsession with heritability, and classical genetics in the context of reduction and molecular biology.
Incorporating multiple criteria into the design of conservation area networks: a minireview with recommendations
It is suggested that the computation of the non-dominated set (NDS) be the first stage of any such analysis, and that multi-attribute value theory (MAVT) should be used.
Operationalizing biodiversity for conservation planning
The relative concept of biodiversity built into the definition of complementarity has the level of precision needed to undertake conservation planning, and specifically captures the differences between places as the authors iterate the process of place prioritization.
