This paper discusses the University of North Texas' (UNT) Center for the Study of Interdisciplinarity (CSID), where philosophers continue to examine the value of knowledge. The authors also discuss one example of CSID's work with the Comparative Assessment of Peer Review (CAPR) project. CAPR is a four-year project (2008-2012) studying the changing nature of peer review processes across six U.S. and foreign public science agencies. CAPR is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation's (NSF) Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP) program.

This article posits that the frequently abrupt environmental changes accompanying much longer-term general climate change require consideration of the true nature of environmental change coupled with an expansion of focus to consider developmental phenotypic plasticity.
This article uses 41 Landsat images between 1988 and 2016 to calculate the normalized difference vegetation indices (NVDIs) of the wetland vegetation at Xitugou (XTG) and Wowachi (WWC) inside the Dunhuang Yangguan National Nature Reserve in northwest China in order to assess the impacts of climate change on wetland vegetation.
