Factors affecting wetland connectivity for wintering semipalmated sandpipers (Calidris pusilla) in the Caribbean

Waterbirds, 39(3), 250–259.

By: M. Parks*, J. Collazo* & K. Alvarez

TL;DR: It is indicated that coastal wetlands in southwestern Puerto Rico were connected, pointing at the joint value of salt flats and mangroves for overwintering Semipalmated Sandpipers, which likely widens resource diversity, which is essential for coping with unpredictable environments.

Species traits and catchment-scale habitat factors influence the occurrence of freshwater mussel populations and assemblages

Freshwater Biology, 61(10), 1671–1684.

By: T. Pandolfo n, T. Kwak n, W. Cope n, R. Heise*, R. Nichols* & K. Pacifici n

author keywords: Bayesian hierarchical modelling; imperfect detection; rare species; species richness; unionid
TL;DR: Catchment-scale abiotic variables and species traits influenced the occurrence of mussel assemblages more than reach- or microhabitat-scale features and indicate that habitat restoration alone may not be adequate for mussel conservation. (via Semantic Scholar)

How Climate Change Beliefs among US Teachers Do and Do Not Translate to Students

PLOS ONE, 11(9).

By: K. Stevenson n, M. Peterson n & A. Bradshaw n

Contributors: K. Stevenson n, M. Peterson n & A. Bradshaw n

Ed(s): J. Wouwe

MeSH headings : Adolescent; Climate Change; Female; Global Warming; Humans; Interpersonal Relations; Male; North Carolina; Public Opinion; School Teachers / psychology; Students / psychology; Surveys and Questionnaires
TL;DR: It appears that as long as climate change information is presented in classrooms, students deduce anthropogenic causes and science teachers’ low recognition of the causes of global warming is not necessarily problematic in terms of student outcomes. (via Semantic Scholar)
