Integrating recent scientific knowledge into management decisions supports effective natural resource management and can lead to better resource outcomes. However, finding and accessing scientific knowledge can be time consuming and costly. To assist in this process, the U.S. Geological Survey is creating a series of annotated bibliographies on topics of...
Serologic Survey of Selected Arthropod Borne Pathogens in Free-ranging Snowshoe Hares (Lepus americanus) Captured in Northern Michigan, USA
Erik K. Hofmeister, Melissa Lund, Daniel A. Grear, Eric Clark
2024, Journal of Wildlife Diseases
Snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus) in the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan occupy the southern range periphery and are vulnerable to climate change. In the eastern UP hares are isolated by the Great Lakes potentially exacerbating exposure to climate change induced habitat alterations. Climate change is also measurably affecting distribution and...
Krumholzibacteriota and Deltaproteobacteria contain rare genetic potential to liberate carbon from monoaromatic compounds in subsurface coal seams
Bronwyn C. Campbell, Paul Greenfield, Elliott Barnhart, Se Gong, David J. Midgley, Ian T. Paulsen, Simon C. George
2024, mBio
Biogenic methane in subsurface coal seam environments is produced by diverse consortia of microbes. Although this methane is useful for global energy security, it remains unclear which microbes can liberate carbon from the coal. Most of this carbon is relatively resistant to biodegradation, as it is contained within aromatic rings....

2024, Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems (25)
Uranium (U) is an important global energy resource and a redox sensitive trace element that reflects changing environmental conditions and geochemical cycling. The redox evolution of U mineral chemistry can be interrogated to understand the formation and distribution of U deposits and the redox processes involved in U geochemistry throughout...
Quantitative microbial risk assessment for ingestion of antibiotic resistance genes from private wells contaminated by human and livestock fecal sources
Tucker R. Burch, Joel P. Stokdyk, Lisa Durso, Mark A. Borchardt
2024, Applied and Environmental Microbiology
We used quantitative microbial risk assessment to estimate ingestion risk for intI1, erm(B), sul1, tet(A), tet(W), and tet(X) in private wells contaminated by human and/or livestock feces. Genes were quantified with five human-specific and six bovine-specific microbial source-tracking (MST) markers in 138 well-water samples from a rural Wisconsin county. Daily ingestion risk (probability of swallowing ≥1...

Abu SMG Kibria, Erin Seekamp, Xiao Xiao, Soupy Dalyander, Mitchell Eaton
2024, Climate Risk Management (43)
Prioritizing climate adaptation actions is often made difficult by stakeholders and decision-makers having multiple objectives, some of which may be competing. Transparent, transferable, and objective methods are needed to assess and weight different objectives for complex decisions with multiple interests. In...
Prioritizing river basins for nutrient studies
Anthony J. Tesoriero, Dale M. Robertson, Christopher Green, John K. Böhlke, Judson Harvey, Sharon L. Qi
2024, Environmental Monitoring and Assessment (196)
Increases in fluxes of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) in the environment have led to negative impacts affecting drinking water, eutrophication, harmful algal blooms, climate change, and biodiversity loss. Because of the importance, scale, and complexity of these issues, it may be useful to consider methods for...
Guide to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) sampling within Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration
Erin L. Pulster, Sarah R. Bowman, Landon Keele, Jeffery Steevens
2024, Open-File Report 2024-1001
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are synthetic chemicals with a nondegradable fluorinated carbon backbone that have been incorporated in countless industrial and commercial applications. Because PFAS are nondegradable, they have been detected in all environmental media, indicating extensive global contamination. The unique physiochemical properties of PFAS and their complex interactions...

Nicholas J. Gianoutsos, Seth S. Haines, Brian A. Varela, Katherine J. Whidden
2024, Energy & Fuels
More than 20,000 horizontal wells have been drilled and hydraulically fractured in the Eagle Ford Group since the discovery well in 2008, but a considerable amount of undiscovered petroleum remains. Recently, drilled wells have been hydraulically fractured with an average of nearly 13 million gallons of water and 16 million...
Rayleigh step-selection functions and connections to continuous-time mechanistic movement models
Joseph Michael Eisaguirre, Perry J. Williams, Mevin B. Hooten
2024, Movement Ecology (12)
BackgroundThe process known as ecological diffusion emerges from a first principles view of animal movement, but ecological diffusion and other partial differential equation models can be difficult to fit to data. Step-selection functions (SSFs), on the other hand, have emerged as powerful practical tools for ecologists studying the...

Approaches for using CMIP projections in climate model ensembles to address the ‘hot model’ problem
Ryan Boyles, Catherine A. Nikiel, Brian W. Miller, Jeremy Littell, Adam J. Terando, Imtiaz Rangwala, Jay R. Alder, Derek H. Rosendahl, Adrienne M. Wootten
2024, Open-File Report 2024-1008
Several recent generation global-climate models were found to have anomalously high climate sensitivities and may not be useful for certain applications. Four approaches for developing ensembles of climate projections for applications that address this issue are:Using an “all models” approach;Screening using equilibrium climate sensitivity and (or) transient climate response;Bayesian model...

Shannon E. Moore, Anna Siwertsson, Kevin D. Lafferty, Armand M. Kuris, Miroslava Soldánová, Dana N. Morton, Raul Primicerio, Per-Arne Amundsen
2024, Oecologia
We compared three sets of highly resolved food webs with and without parasites for a subarctic lake system corresponding to its pelagic and benthic compartments and the whole-lake food web. Key topological food-web metrics were calculated for each set of compartments to explore the role parasites...
Using stochastic point pattern analysis to track regional orientations of magmatism during the transition to cenozoic extension and Rio Grande rifting, Southern Rocky Mountains
Joshua Mark Rosera, Sean P. Gaynor, Alexey Ulianov, Urs Schaltegger
2024, Tectonics (43)
The southern Rocky Mountains in Colorado and northern New Mexico hosted intracontinental magmatism that developed during a tectonic transition from shortening (Laramide orogeny, ca. 75 to 40 Ma) through extension and rifting. We present a novel approach that uses stochastic weighted bootstrap simulations of a large set of...
