Often local and regional regulations impact the natural environment beyond the jurisdiction for which they were developed. Scientists in LSU’s College of the Coast & Environment are analyzing Louisiana’s patchwork of regulations to get a big picture view of how they are influencing current conditions in the coastal watershed. This research is part of the Louisiana Watershed Initiative, or LWI, and will assess how to improve deficiencies in Louisiana’s approach to floodplain management and community planning across all levels of government.
LSU researchers recently published findings that the presence of blight in Baton Rouge neighborhoods is leading to an increased abundance of disease carrying mosquitoes. Rebeca De Jesus Crespo is the lead author and an assistant professor in LSU’s College of the Coast & Environment.
