Sexual dimorphism in bat wing morphology  — variation among foraging styles
Canadian Journal of Zoology, Ahead of Print. Sexual dimorphism can lead to differences in foraging style among conspecifics due to morphological differences. Within bats, maneuverability and speed of flight are influenced by wing shape and size, which may differ between sexes. Female bats gain about 30% of their body mass during pregnancy, affecting their agility and flight efficiency. To fill the same foraging niche as males, pregnant female bats would require wing size and  (or) shape modifications to maintain maneuverability. We investigated sexual dimorphism in bat wing morphology and how it varies among foraging guil...

The Development of a Novel International Elective in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
This article describes the development of an international rotation in physical medicine and rehabilitation including specific competency-based physical medicine and rehabilitation global health learning objectives, predeparture training, rotation structure, and postrotation feedback mechanisms. The aim is to present the development of the program as a resource for both residents and program directors to help create and maximize existing rotations at their own institutions. Learners must complete predeparture requirements that include completion of a musculoskeletal rotation and global health didactics intended to provide ...

Cultivating health: diabetes resilience through neo-traditional farming in Mopan Maya communities of Belize
This article is based on long-term ethnographic research and interviews in Maya Mountains Reservation (MMR) communities in southern Belize, an area with low diabetes prevalence relative to national and global populations. Research participants see lower rates of diabetes in the MMR as the result of neo-traditional peasant and subsistence farming on ancestral lands. Good metabolic health represents the embodiment of food systems that routinize healthy material and social relationships to the landscape. This research suggests that diabetes is endemic to modern food systems and proposes neo-traditional food ways as a societal...

Variable tropical moisture and food availability underlie mixed winter space-use strategies in a migratory songbird
Proc Biol Sci. 2021 Jul 28;288(1955):20211220. doi: 10.1098/rspb.2021.1220. Epub 2021 Jul 21.ABSTRACTIdentifying environmental correlates driving space-use strategies can be critical for predicting population dynamics; however, such information can be difficult to attain for small mobile species such as migratory songbirds. We combined radio-telemetry and high-resolution GPS tracking to examine space-use strategies under different moisture gradients for wood thrush (Hylocichla mustelina). We explored the role moisture plays in driving food abundance and, in turn, space-use strategies at a wintering site in Belize across 3 ...
