Environmental factors are common forces driving infectious disease dynamics. We compared inter-annual and seasonal patterns of anthrax infections in two multi-host systems in southern Africa: Etosha National Park, Namibia, and Kruger National Park, South Africa. Using several decades of mortality data from each system, we assessed possible transmission mechanisms behind anthrax dynamics, examining 1) within- and between-species case correlations, and 2) associations between anthrax mortalities and environmental factors, specifically rainfall and the Normalized Difference Vegetation...

Supplementary data, code, and information for ‘Interhemispheric antiphasing of neotropical precipitation during the past millennium’ (PNAS, Steinman et al. 2022)

B.A. Steinman, N. Stansall, M.E. Mann, C.A. Cooke, M.B. Abbott, M. Vuille, B.W. Bird, M.S. Lachniet & A. Fernandez
Uncertainty about the influence of anthropogenic radiative forcing on the position and strength of convective rainfall in the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) inhibits our ability to project future tropical hydroclimate change in a warmer world. Paleoclimatic and modeling data inform on the timescales and mechanisms of ITCZ variability; yet a comprehensive, long-term perspective remains elusive. Here, we quantify the evolution of neotropical hydroclimate over the pre-industrial past millennium (850 to 1850 CE) using a synthesis...

Anatexis of late Neoarchean-Early Paleoproterozoic and late Paleoproterozoic garnet-bearing leucogranite from the Khondalite Belt in the North China Craton

Qiang Shi, Zhong-Yuan Xu, Guo-Chun Zhao, Ding Ding, Guang-Wei Liu, Zhong-Hai Zhao, Jing-Yu Yu, Chen Li, Li-Qiang Bai, Yao Wang, Bing Guo, Kai Zhang & Chun-Feng Liu
Two episodes of late Neoarchean-early Paleoproterozoic and late Paleoproterozoic garnet-bearing leucogranite, named the Baotou and Jining–Liangcheng garnet-bearing leucogranite are recognized from the Khondalite Belt in the North China Craton. Geochemical studies show that garnet-bearing leucogranite has high Al2O3 content and FeOT/MgO ratio, with a large variation in the CaO content and K2O/Na2O ratio. Additionally, the garnet-bearing leucogranite is enriched in light rare earth elements and large ion lithophile elements and depleted in Nb, Ta, P,...

Nonparametric Prediction Distribution from Resolution-Wise Regression with Heterogeneous Data

Jialu Li, Wan Zhang, Peiyao Wang, Qizhai Li, Kai Zhang & Yufeng Liu
Modeling and inference for heterogeneous data have gained great interest recently due to rapid developments in personalized marketing. Most existing regression approaches are based on the conditional mean and may require additional cluster information to accommodate data heterogeneity. In this article, we propose a novel nonparametric resolution-wise regression procedure to provide an estimated distribution of the response instead of one single value. We achieve this by decomposing the information of the response and the predictors...
