Seeking Care at Free Episodic Health Care Clinics in Appalachia

Malerie Lazar, Sandra Thomas & Lisa Davenport
Background: People who live in rural Appalachia experience a wide variety of problems when seeking access to health care. Health care disparities continue to be one of the most complex and prevalent problems, and many barriers exist for impoverished men and women such as a lack of education, complications with health insurance, and personal distrust of healthcare providers. Purpose: A critical gap in the literature is the unheard voice of persons in rural underserved areas....

Data from: Inbreeding shapes the evolution of marine invertebrates

Kevin Olsen, Will Ryan, Alice Winn, Ellen Kosman, Jose Moscoso, Stacy Krueger-Hadfield, Scott Burgess, David Carlon, Richard Grosberg, Susan Kalisz & Don Levitan
Inbreeding is a potent evolutionary force shaping the distribution of genetic variation within and among populations of plants and animals. Yet, our understanding of the forces shaping the expression and evolution of non-random mating in general, and inbreeding in particular, remains remarkably incomplete. Most research on plant mating systems focuses on self-fertilization and its consequences for automatic selection, inbreeding depression, purging, and reproductive assurance, whereas studies of animal mating systems have often assumed that inbreeding...

Pathogenic Leptospira isolated from rodents in New Orleans, Louisiana USA, and associated site information

Anna Peterson, Michael Blum, Bruno Ghersi, Claudia Riegel, Elsio Wunder & James Childs
Land use change can elevate disease risk by creating conditions beneficial to species that carry zoonotic pathogens. Observations of concordant global trends in pathogen prevalence and disease incidence have engendered concerns that urbanization could increase transmission risk of some pathogens. Yet host-pathogen relationships underlying transmission risk have not been well characterized within cities, even where contact between humans and species capable of transmitting pathogens of concern occur. We addressed this deficit by testing the hypothesis...

ORNL – SAFEGUARDS AND SECURITY: The Global producers of the 8 radionuclides of particular security concern

James Carman
Co-authored together with A. Creel, S. Milewski, J. Staub, and A. Woofter. The scope of this assignment was to identify research and production nuclear reactors that are producers of significant quantities of eight specific radionuclides that are of security concern: Americium241; Californium-252; Cesium-137; Cobalt-60; Iridium-192; Plutonium-238; Radium-226; and Strontium-90, by Mr. David Lambert, the Program Co-Manager of the Material Protection, Control, and Accounting Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Nuclear Nonproliferation Programs. The ultimate goal...

Extreme developmental instability is associated with the pea aphid wing plasticity

Rachel Hammelman, Carrie Heusinkveld, Emily Hung, Alydia Meinecke, Benjamin Parker & Jennifer Brisson
A key focus of evolutionary developmental biology is on how phenotypic diversity is generated. In particular, both plasticity and developmental instability can contribute to phenotypic variation among genetically identical individuals, but the interactions between the two phenomena and their general fitness impacts are unclear. We discovered a striking example of asymmetry in pea aphids: the presence of wings on one side and the complete or partial absence of wings on the opposite side. We used...
