1. Hall, Hollie R. Protecting Florida Lakes Regulatory Intent, Recreational Use and Water Quality.

Degree: PhD, Soil and Water Science, 2013, University of Florida

Presented research findings arose from Adaptive Management guided inquiries into the regulatory frameworks, stakeholder representation, social perceptions, and water quality related to the recreational use of Florida lakes and the protection of those uses. The United States Clean Water Act and Florida’s Surface Water Quality Standards set clear intention to protect recreational uses of lakes, and Florida’s numeric nutrient criteria act as the regulatory mechanism for protection of recreational uses. Guiding principles of Adaptive Management predict that inclusion of stakeholder-defined values is crucial for maintaining stakeholder content and successful protection of those values. From these principles, hypotheses predicting that: the absences of stakeholder defined recreational use patterns would create policy information gaps, result in inadequate protection of recreational uses, and discontent among recreational users were established. Analyses of language used within the Clean Water Act and Florida’s Surface Water Quality Standards were conducted. An absence of definition for recreational uses of lakes was identified indicating an information gap as predicted. A stakeholder vetted definition for recreational uses include, but are not limited to, relaxing, boating, fishing, viewing nature, picnicking, swimming, camping, tubing, hunting, wakeboarding, diving, and water skiing. To determine whether stakeholders were content with the level of protection provided for these recreational uses analyses of public comments submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency regarding the numeric nutrient criteria portion of Florida’s Surface Water Quality Standards was conducted. These analyses determined a majority of comments expressed discontent with the perceived protection provided for recreational uses of Florida’s lakes. To determine whether the numeric nutrient criteria provided protection of existing recreational uses, analyses of existing recreational use patterns and water quality were conducted. These analyses quantified distinct groupings of recreational uses based upon lake water nutrient concentrations indicating that the numeric nutrient criteria might not protect recreational uses dependent upon oligotrophic or eutrophic lake water quality, and that additional regulatory approaches for protection of existing recreational uses might benefit society. Collectively, the presented research findings indicate that select principles of Adaptive Management allow for predictions of management strategy success, failure, or improvement based upon stakeholder engagement.

2. Muriithi, Paul Mutuanyingi. A case for memory enhancement : ethical, social, legal, and policy implications for enhancing the memory.

Degree: PhD, 2014, University of Manchester

The desire to enhance and make ourselves better is not a new one and it has continued to intrigue throughout the ages. Individuals have continued to seek ways to improve and enhance their well-being for example through nutrition, physical exercise, education and so on. Crucial to this improvement of their well-being is improving their ability to remember. Hence, people interested in improving their well-being, are often interested in memory as well. The rationale being that memory is crucial to our well-being. The desire to improve one’s memory then is almost certainly as old as the desire to improve one’s well-being. Traditionally, people have used different means in an attempt to enhance their memories: for example in learning through storytelling, studying, and apprenticeship. In remembering through practices like mnemonics, repetition, singing, and drumming. In retaining, storing and consolidating memories through nutrition and stimulants like coffee to help keep awake; and by external aids like notepads and computers. In forgetting through rituals and rites. Recent scientific advances in biotechnology, nanotechnology, molecular biology, neuroscience, and information technologies, present a wide variety of technologies to enhance many different aspects of human functioning. Thus, some commentators have identified human enhancement as central and one of the most fascinating subject in bioethics in the last two decades. Within, this period, most of the commentators have addressed the Ethical, Social, Legal and Policy (ESLP) issues in human enhancements as a whole as opposed to specific enhancements. However, this is problematic and recently various commentators have found this to be deficient and called for a contextualized case-by-case analysis to human enhancements for example genetic enhancement, moral enhancement, and in my case memory enhancement (ME). The rationale being that the reasons for accepting/rejecting a particular enhancement vary depending on the enhancement itself. Given this enormous variation, moral and legal generalizations about all enhancement processes and technologies are unwise and they should instead be evaluated individually. Taking this as a point of departure, this research will focus specifically on making a case for ME and in doing so assessing the ESLP implications arising from ME. My analysis will draw on the already existing literature for and against enhancement, especially in part two of this thesis; but it will be novel in providing a much more in-depth analysis of ME. From this perspective, I will contribute to the ME debate through two reviews that address the question how we enhance the memory, and through four original papers discussed in part three of this thesis, where I examine and evaluate critically specific ESLP issues that arise with the use of ME. In the conclusion, I will amalgamate all my contribution to the ME debate and suggest the future direction for the ME debate.
