  • Peredo, Carlos Mauricio; Pyenson, Nicholas D.; Uhen, Mark D.; Marshall, Christopher D. (PLOS One, 2017)
    The evolution of filter feeding in baleen whales (Mysticeti) facilitated a wide range of ecological diversity and extreme gigantism. The innovation of filter feeding evolved in a shift from a mineralized upper and lower ...
  • Yang, Ruixin; Fairley, Allison S.; Park, Wonsun (Earth Interactions, 2018)
    Predicting tropical cyclone (TC) activity becomes more important every year while the understanding of what factors impact them continues to be complicated. El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is one of the primary factors ...
  • Wong, Carol M.; Tetrick, Lois E. (Frontiers in Psychology, 2017)
    Aging at work is a dynamic process. As individuals age, their motives, abilities and values change as suggested by life-span development theories (Lang and Carstensen, 2002; Kanfer and Ackerman, 2004). Their growth and ...

  • Hausfather, Zeke; Cowtan, Kevin; Clarke, David C.; Jacobs, Peter H; Richardson, Mark; Rohde, Robert (Scientific Advances, 2017)
    Sea surface temperature (SST) records are subject to potential biases due to changing instrumentation and measurement practices. Significant differences exist between commonly used composite SST reconstructions from the ...
  • Venkadesh, Siva; Komendantov, AO; Listopad, Stanislav; Scott, Eric O.; De Jong, Kenneth; Krichmar, Jeffrey L.; Ascoli, Giorgio A. (Frontiers in Neuroinformatics, 2018)
    The diversity of intrinsic dynamics observed in neurons may enhance the computations implemented in the circuit by enriching network-level emergent properties such as synchronization and phase locking. Large-scale spiking ...
  • Rossheim, Matthew E.; Livingston, Melvin D.; Lerch, Jennifer A.; Taxman, Faye S.; Walters, Scott T. (Health and Justice, 2018)
    Background Adults on probation are at greater risk of both using substances and having a mental disorder compared to the general population. Several theories explain the relationship between substance use and poor mental ...
  • Schwartz, Karin R.; Parsons, E. Christien Michael; Rockwood, Larry; Wood, Thomas C. (Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, 2017)
    There is an increasing need for a “one plan approach” for conservation strategies that integrate in-situ and ex-situ management processes. Zoological institutions contribute directly to threatened species conservation ...
  • Rodriguez, Luis R.; Emblom-Callahan, Margaret; Chhina, Mantej; Bui, Sarah; Aljeburry, Bilal (Scientific Reports, 2018)
    Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive disorder that is marked by an over accumulation of activated fibroblast populations. Despite the improved understanding of many mechanisms within this disease, global ...
  • Parsons, E. Christien Michael; MacPherson, Rick; Villagomez, A. (Frontiers in Marine Science, 2017-09)
    What exactly does “doing conservation” or “incorporating conservation” into ocean science mean? Although today it is often coupled with the sustainable use of natural resources, by definition, conservation traditionally ...
  • Parsons, E. Christien Michael (Frontiers in Marine Science, 2017-09)
    The risks military sonar poses to cetaceans received international attention with a highly-publicized mass stranding of Cuvier's beaked whales (Ziphius cavirostris), Blainville's beaked whales (Mesoplodon densirostris), ...
  • Oldham, Matthew (Advances in Complex Systems, 2017-08)
    The inability of investors and academics to consistently predict, and understand the behavior of financial markets has forced the search for alternative analytical frameworks. Analyzing financial markets as complex systems ...
  • Sardelis, Stephanie; Oester, Samantha; Liboiron, Max (Frontiers in Marine Science, 2017-07)
