    In northern ecosystems near the climatological timberline, the interactions between vegetation and disturbances, such as forest tire, are particularly important, as the changes in vegetation may produce large feedbacks into the climate. The changed climate and the altered surface conditions may...

    In May of 2011, an enteroaggregative Escherichia coli O104:H4 strain that had acquired a Shiga toxin 2-converting phage caused a large outbreak of bloody diarrhea in Europe which was notable for its high prevalence of hemolytic uremic syndrome cases. Several studies have described the genomic...

    Vegetation strongly influences exchanges of energy and moisture between land and atmosphere through (1) the vegetation's response to incoming radiation and its emission of longwave radiation (2) the vegetation's physical presence, and (3) the plant's transpiration. These processes affect the...
