  • Many Modern Ecological problems such as rain forest destruction, decreasing marine harvests, and fire suppression are directly or indirectly anthropogenic. Zooarchaeology and Conservation Biology presents an argument that conservation biology and wildlife management cannot afford to ignore zooarchaeological research--the identification and analysis of faunal remains recovered from archaeological deposits. The editors contend that we can learn important lessons by studying long-term human and nonhuman influences on biota and ecosystems.

  • Environmental challenges act as a spur to invention and innovation. R&D will continue to be important  as  companies and  investors  seek disruptive  technology  solutions  that  can  change  the economics of,  and rewards from, new environmental products or processes. Significant private and public funds have  already been established, many of which are still  investing despite  the current economic slowdown.  The short‐term challenge is to ensure that these funds continue to flow and to sustain future growth.

  • In a dynamic admissions landscape, one of the primary drivers of admissions success is static and unchanging—an effective, error-free application. While it may seem rudimentary, applicants are encouraged to thoroughly proofread their applications for careless errors and enlist trusted friends, family, colleagues or a skilled admissions consultant to do the same to avoid the number one most common application faux pas. Applicants also need to resist the temptation to copy and paste material from one appli- cation to another, or to decide that an essay is “good enough.

  • In this paper we propose a new, information-based approach for modelling the dynamic evolution of a portfolio of credit risky securities. In our setup market prices of traded credit derivatives are given by the solution of a nonlinear filtering problem. The innovations approach to nonlinear filtering is used to solve this problem and to derive the dynamics of market prices. Moreover, the practical application of the model is discussed: we analyse calibration, the pricing of exotic credit derivatives and the computation of risk-minimizing hedging strategies.

  • Procrastination is captured by the tendency of many people to have high short-term discount rates but lower long-term discount rates (hyperbolic discounting). Postponing a cost, even one that generates high future benefits, is therefore attractive. So too is advancing a benefit to the present, even if this implies high future costs. This leads to outcomes such as credit card borrowing at high interest rates and unwillingness to engage in painful activities such as financial planning.

  • Finally, specific maps for an ecosystem or beneficiary group of interest can also be generated. Such maps can show either 1) the parts of the landscape from which a given beneficiary’s benefits are derived, or 2) the beneficiary groups receiving benefits from a particular ecosystem region of interest (Johnson et al. unpublished). We have to date mapped only the spatial dynamics of carbon sequestration and storage, aesthetic views and aesthetic proximity.
