1. Rodrigue, Mattie. Developing a Collaborative Research Program to Evaluate Fine-Scale Groundfish Dynamics in Eastern Maine.

Degree: MS, Marine Biology, 2017, University of Maine

Fisheries science conducted and used for management strategies in the Gulf of Maine (GOM) is conducted at broad spatial and temporal scales. There is a tendency for fisheries-independent monitoring programs, which play a critical role in fisheries assessment and management, to miss fine-scale dynamics, especially given the complex hydrographic structures characterizing the GOM. In New England, fishermen participating in a heterogeneous groundfish fishery within the GOM may have varied perceptions of fish abundance or distribution depending on the scale at which they participate in the fishery. Overlooking fine-scale life-history dynamics coupled with scale-mismatch in science and management may perpetuate a cycle of mismanagement and mistrust in the groundfish fishery. We developed and evaluated a collaborative fisheries-independent survey called the Eastern Gulf of Maine Sentinel Survey-Fishery (Sentinel Survey). We used demersal longline gear and jig gear to sample the eastern Gulf of Maine (EGOM), which is an area characterized by unique hydrographic features and complex benthic structure, and is sparsely sampled by regional monitoring programs. The survey has two major objectives: to evaluate fine-scale groundfish dynamics in eastern Maine, and to involve fishermen directly in the data collection and analysis process. The outcomes of the first objective will provide important abundance, distribution, and life-history information for groundfish species in a region not well-covered by existing fisheries-independent monitoring programs, which is useful for stock assessment. Outcomes of the second objective help establish a collaborative framework for evaluating fine-scale groundfish dynamics in the EGOM, align perceptions of scale between fishermen, managers, and scientists, and to build trust between them. Catch data from the Sentinel Survey was evaluated to derive abundance indices and examine distribution for Atlantic Cod (Gadus morhua), Atlantic Halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus), White Hake (Urophysis tenuis), and Cusk (Brosme brosme). This information provides important insight into spatial and temporal variability for groundfish dynamics in the region. To evaluate life-history parameters for these species, we created Weight-Length Relationships (WLRs), then used Fulton's K to evaluate condition factor. Generalized Additive Models (GAMs) were used to evaluate spatial, temporal, and environmental effects on life-history parameters and condition. We then evaluated the Sentinel Survey design using GAMs to identify potential sources of variability affecting catchability for four key groundfish species. We found depth to be the most consistent and significant variable affecting catchability. Additionally, we evaluated and optimized the longline gear used on the Sentinel Survey to alleviate financial and logistical concerns. Finally, we used the Sentinel Survey as a case study to describe how a collaborative research program can be used to identify and evaluate… Advisors/Committee Members: Yong Chen, James Wilson, Gayle Zydlewski.

3. Ezike-Dennis, Uchechukwu Nneka. The spatial distribution of HIV and AIDS in Gauteng, South Africa .

Degree: 2007, University of South Africa

Since the earliest reported cases of HIV/AIDS probably in 1959 in Africa, there has been a consistent progression in the new HIV/AIDS infection cases. In South Africa, Gauteng, records one of the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rates in the country. The Department of Health (DOH) South Africa conducts ongoing studies on HIV/AIDS at provincial levels; these studies monitor the prevalence of HIV/AIDS amongst pregnant women attending antenatal clinics, as a tool for determining and monitoring the prevalence, trends, patterns and spread of the disease in the general population. This study analyses sentinel and spatial data collected from the (DOH) and Statistics South Africa (StatsSA) respectively, and depicts them in the form of spatial maps, and then critically analyses the spatial patterns that occur. The research findings would hopefully contribute to the overall knowledge of HIV/AIDS and provide framework and relevant literature for further investigation. Advisors/Committee Members: Nicolau, M.D (advisor).
