A nowcasting framework for correcting for reporting delays in malaria surveillance

Infectious disease monitoring systems worldwide are often threatened by severe reporting delays, hindering resource planning efforts, particularly for endemic diseases like malaria and in remote localities. Here Menkir et al. compare their regional monthly estimates with eventually reported cases of malaria and found that they were up to two times more accurate than case counts known at the month of reporting.

More pests but less pesticide applications: Ambivalent effect of landscape complexity on conservation biological control

In the agricultural context, the loss of semi-natural surfaces often results in high pest abundance requiring elevated pesticide loads. Here, the authors tackle the challenge to investigate the controversial role of semi-natural habitats for CBC by presenting a simulation-based approach, which allows them to characterize the joint influence of landscape structure and species traits on CBC service.
