Spatial Distribution of Counties in the Continental United States with Records of Occurrence of Amblyomma americanum (Ixodida: Ixodidae)
TLDR
A county-level distribution map for A. americanum is presented, which depicts a species with a core distributional area in the southern part of the eastern United States, but that also occurs further north, especially along the Atlantic Coast and into the Midwest.
NEON terrestrial field observations: designing continental scale, standardized sampling
Rapid changes in climate and land use and the resulting shifts in species distributions and ecosystem functions have motivated the development of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON).
TOWARD ECOSYSTEM-BASED MANAGEMENT OF MARINE MACROALGAE—THE BULL KELP, NEREOCYSTIS LUETKEANA
TLDR
This review summarizes current knowledge of bull kelp biology, ecological functions and services, and past and ongoing management practices and concludes by recommending research directions for moving toward an ecosystem-based approach to managing this and similarly important kelps in shallow temperate rocky reef ecosystems.
Expanding Range of Amblyomma americanum and Simultaneous Changes in the Epidemiology of Spotted Fever Group Rickettsiosis in the United States.
TLDR
It is shown that the expanding range of A. americanum is associated with changes in epidemiology reported through passive surveillance, and epidemiological and acarological data collected on individual cases from enhanced surveillance may further elucidate the reasons for the changing epidemiology of SFG rickettsiosis.
Habitat heterogeneity drives the host-diversity-begets-parasite-diversity relationship: evidence from experimental and field studies.
TLDR
Analysis of surveys of amphibian hosts with an outdoor experiment revealed that parasite diversity increased consistently with host diversity due to habitat heterogeneity, with secondary contributions from parasite colonisation and host abundance.
Modeling the Present and Future Geographic Distribution of the Lone Star Tick, Amblyomma americanum (Ixodida: Ixodidae), in the Continental United States.
TLDR
The present-day ensemble model predicted an essentially contiguous distribution of suitable habitat extending to the Atlantic coast east of the 100th western meridian and south of the 40th northern parallel, but excluding a high elevation region associated with the Appalachian Mountains.
Large-scale health disparities associated with Lyme disease and human monocytic ehrlichiosis in the United States, 2007–2013
TLDR
Findings indicate that racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in disease incidence appear to be epidemiologically important features of Lyme disease and human monocytic ehrlichiosis in the United States.
Increase in Adverse Reactions Associated with Use of Synthetic Cannabinoids - Anchorage, Alaska, 2015-2016.
TLDR
A public health investigation was initiated to describe clinical outcomes, characterize the outbreak, and identify SC chemicals circulating in Anchorage.

TLDR
The co-authors of this paper state their intention to work together to launch the Genomic Observatories Network (GOs Network) for which this document will serve as its Founding Charter, and to describe their shared vision for its future.
