Nearly 75% of all crops around the world are at least partially dependent on pollinators. Some of the crops that are highly dependent on pollination include, fruits, nuts, avocados, melons, pumpkins, coco beans, coffee, soybeans and palm oil. In fact, the USDA states that honeybees and other native pollinators are responsible for one in every three bites of food that we eat and it is estimated that pollination helps increase our nation’s crop value by 15 billion each year.

However, over the past few decades, we have seen a...

Nearly three decades have passed since genetically modified crops (so-called 'GMOs') were widely commercialized.

Abstract: Climate change is altering the mean and variability of weather variables and is causing sea-level rise. Carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas driving climate change, also is causing ocean acidification and reducing the nutritional quality of major cereal crops. Future health risks will be determined by the interaction of the hazards created by a changing climate with the populations and regions exposed to those changes, and the sensitivity and capacity of those so exposed to prepare for and effectively manage changes in the magnitude and pattern of exposure. That is,...

We often hear about how relationships are essential to initiating collaboration, including research-practice partnerships (RPPs). Yet that raises several key questions. How do these relationships form? And why do some relationships form and not others? Answering these questions is especially important for RPPs given that, oftentimes, researchers and practitioners start off as strangers to one another, and strangers tend to remain strangers if left to their own devices. Adam Seth Levine presents a three-part argument: a new theory on when diverse thinkers choose to engage with each other,...
