Almost everything in human toxicology studies is going to be correlational.”Aaron Reuben, “Air Pollution Linked to Adverse Mental Health Effects“ HEALTH & ECOSYSTEMS ARCHIVE A Lidar’s-Eye View of How Forests Are Faring Success in Yosemite is driving the wider use of lidar surveys to support forest health and wildfire resilience, study wildlife habitats, and monitor water resources. by Van R. Kane, Liz Van Wagtendonk and Andrew Brenner A New Index to Quantify River Fragmentation Researchers have developed a new analysis based on a river’s catchment area as opposed its length. by Rishika Pardikar Climate Benefits of Forests Go Far Beyond Carbon Sequestration Forests are “essentially air-conditioning systems” thanks to biophysical processes like evapotranspiration and canopy roughness. by Santiago Flórez Uranium Detected in Latinx Communities’ Water Systems The unsafe contaminant levels could not be attributed to differences in regional geology, water source, or community size. Researchers suggest they are due to a failure of regulatory policy. by Kimberly M. S.
