Unimplemented Development

Large-scale development projects have received significant attention in the natural and social sciences, as mines, canals, dams, pipelines, and highways shape landscapes and societies. Yet many large-scale development projects are proposed but not actually built. To the extent that such projects are studied, it is often to understand the potential socio-environmental changes they could cause, if completed.

Co-generating a system model to improve opportunities for proactive management of the Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) threat in North America

In the last four decades, amphibian populations across the world have experienced declines attributed to climate change, habitat alteration, and infectious disease. Notably, many of these declines have been attributed to the introduction of novel pathogens through human-mediated movement to naïve amphibian species or populations (e.g., FV3-like ranavirus and Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis; Cunningham 2018). Successful control of these pathogens remains elusive, despite continued research.
