The relationship between the phosphate and structural carbonate fractionation of fallow deer bioapatite in tooth enamel

Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry, 33(2), 151–164.

By: H. Miller*, C. Chenery*, A. Lamb*, H. Sloane*, R. Carden*, L. Atici*, N. Sykes*

TL;DR: This is the first comprehensive study of the relationship between ionic forms of oxygen (phosphate oxygen and structural carbonate) in fallow deer dental enamel and the new equation will allow direct comparison with other herbivore data. (via Semantic Scholar)

A nonparametric spatial test to identify factors that shape a microbiome

The Annals of Applied Statistics, 13(4), 2341–2362.

By: S. Singh, A. Staicu, R. Dunn*, N. Fierer & B. Reich

author keywords: Bayesian nonparametrics; Dirichlet process; high dimensional data; spatial modeling; spike-and-slab prior; variable selection
TL;DR: A flexible Bayesian spike-and-slab variable selection model for presence-absence indicators that accounts for spatial dependence and cross-dependence between taxa while reducing dimensionality in both directions is proposed. (via Semantic Scholar)

The role of parasite manipulation in vector-borne diseases

EVOLUTION MEDICINE AND PUBLIC HEALTH, pp. 106–107.

By: M. Beaulieu n

TL;DR: The parasite manipulation hypothesis posits that parasites can purposefully alter host behaviours, increasing probability of transmission to an uninfected host, and applies to vector-borne diseases, where parasite-induced changes in vector behaviour can increase transmission to the non-arthropod host.

2019 journal article

Azteca ants maintain unique microbiomes across functionally distinct nest chambers

author keywords: Azteca; Cecropia; microbiome; microbe; myrmecophyte
MeSH headings : Animals; Ants / microbiology; Ants / physiology; Bacteria / classification; Bacteria / isolation & purification; Cecropia Plant; Fungi / classification; Fungi / isolation & purification; Microbiota; Reproduction
TL;DR: The results show that ants influence microbial communities inside their nests similar to studies of human homes, and unlike humans, ants limit the bacteria in their nurseries and potentially prevent the build-up of insect-infecting pathogens. (via Semantic Scholar)

Do Bee Wings Adapt for Flight in Urban Environments?

SOUTHEASTERN NATURALIST, 18(2), 183–191.

TL;DR: It is found that, although the wing morphology suggests a limited dispersal ability in Andrena barbara (Barbara's Miner), the urban landscape did not significantly explain how wing shape or size vary, suggesting that urban habitats may potentially serve an important role in bee conservation.

Simplification of vector communities during suburban succession

PLOS ONE, 14(5).

By: M. Beaulieu n, K. Hopperstad n, R. Dunn n & M. Reiskind n

MeSH headings : Aedes / classification; Animals; Demography; Disease Vectors / classification; Housing / statistics & numerical data; Humans; Mosquito Vectors / classification; North Carolina; Social Class; Suburban Population
TL;DR: It is demonstrated that suburbanization is disrupting mosquito communities so severely that they do not recover their diversity even 100 years after the initial disturbance, which is significant for vector-borne disease transmission in highly suburbanized areas. (via Semantic Scholar)

Public questions spur the discovery of new bacterial species associated with lignin bioconversion of industrial waste

ROYAL SOCIETY OPEN SCIENCE, 6(3).

By: S. Mathews*, M. Epps*, R. Blackburn n, M. Goshe n, A. Grunden n & R. Dunn n

author keywords: greenhouse camel cricket; hide beetle; Cedecea lapagei; lignocellulose; secretome
TL;DR: This work demonstrates a novel source of lignocellulose-degrading bacteria and introduces an effective workflow to identify bacterial enzymes for transforming industrial waste into value-added products and suggests the value of ecologically guided discovery of novel organisms.

Human indoor climate preferences approximate specific geographies

ROYAL SOCIETY OPEN SCIENCE, 6(3).

By: M. Just n, L. Nichols n & R. Dunn n

author keywords: climate dissimilarity; human niche construction; human associates; thermal comfort; indoor biome
TL;DR: The geographical distribution of the global outdoor climate that is most similar to the interiors of the study homes is identified and a summarized study home indoor climate preferences are summarized. (via Semantic Scholar)

Exotic urban trees conserve similar natural enemy communities to native congeners but have fewer pests

PEERJ, 7.

By: S. Frank n, K. Backe n, C. McDaniel n, M. Green n, S. Widney n & R. Dunn n

author keywords: Urban trees; Parasitoids; Conservation; Pest management; Exotic trees; Acer spp. (maple); Quercus spp. (oaks); Natural enemies; Native trees; Scale insects (Coccoidea)
TL;DR: These native and exotic tree species could help conserve arthropod natural enemies and achieve pest management goals and Parasitoid communities were significantly different among Acer species and Quercus species due in each case to greater abundance of a single family on one native tree species.

Contemporary climatic analogs for 540 North American urban areas in the late 21st century

NATURE COMMUNICATIONS, 10.

TL;DR: Climate-analog mapping is used and it is identified that North American urban areas’ climate by the 2080’s will become similar to the contemporary climate of locations hundreds of kilometers away and mainly to the south, while many urban areas will have no modern equivalent analogs under the RCP8.5 scenario.
