On the use of contingent valuation method to assess factors affecting the contribution of local people for the management of water hyacinth in Lake Tana, northwestern Ethiopia.

The colonization of freshwater lakes by invasive alien species is becoming increasingly alarming, primarily due to the watersheds' nutrient levels. The upstream local community's watershed protection efforts are thought to be effective ways to reduce nutrient loading to the receiving water bodies and thus prevent the spread of water hyacinth. In Lake Tana, the purpose of this research is to identify the preferences and contributions of the local community for the care of water hyacinth. To collect data from 560 randomly selected households, a contingent valuation method for a hypothetical market prevention of water hyacinth infestation of Lake Tana by a watershed management scheme was used. The result of this report indicates community preferences, and could be used to aid informed and evidence-based decision-making concerning the prevention of weed proliferation and sustainable use of ecosystem services.

The Contingent Valuation Method Contributes Solutions for Wildlife Conservation: A Case Study at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in Borneo, Malaysia.

Goal 15 of the Sustainable Development Goals emphasizes the reuse of these natural resources in a sustainable manner. In the Sepilok Forest area, Malaysia is fortunate to have "Orang Hutan'" literally "Jungle People. " The government had designated the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre to protect their safety. In fact, this is the world's first Rehabilitation Center for Orangutans. However, Orangutans' wildlife conservation needs to be converted into economic terms. Using the Contingent Valuation Method, this research seeks to determine the economic value of wildlife conservation from visitors' Willingness to Pay. According to the estimated conservation value of MYR9, 697,074. 96, the Rehabilitation Centre's estimated annual income was MYR9, 697,074. 96 compared to the estimated conservation value of MYR96, 970,749. 60. The results of this report show that economic valuation may play a role in assisting not only Orangutan conservation but also threatened species conservation elsewhere.

Evolutionary divergence in sugar valuation shifts Drosophila suzukii oviposition choice towards ripe fruit

We show that an increase in fruit sugar value during oviposition determinations leads D. suzukii to oviposit on ripe fruits as opposed to the model D. melanogaster, who prefers rotten fruits. The increase in sugar value in D. suzukii, according to neuronal sensitivity changes at several levels of the oviposition circuitry, according to an Inter-species comparative in vivo calcium imaging of sugar Gustatory Receptor Neurons.

Development and validation of the Value of Uterus instrument and visual analog scale to measure patients' valuation of their uterus.

Background: Currently, there are no concrete frameworks or methods to objectively or subjectively assess patient attitudes towards uterine preservation and how they influence the decision to proceed with hysterectomy vs uterine preservation during prolapse surgery. Study design The Value of Uterus instrument was designed on the basis of existing literature and was built with a systematic patient-reported outcome measurement system. "How important is it to you to keep your uterus if you have a gynecologic disorder?" The test results revealed a visual analog scale for the question "How important is it to you to have a gynecologic disorder. " With Value of Uterus administered to women twice, an intraclass correlation coefficient was used to determine test-retest reliability.

Developing mHealth to the Context and Valuation of Injured Patients and Professionals in Hospital Trauma Care: Qualitative and Quantitative Formative Evaluations.

Background: Trauma care is facing difficulties with innovating their services, such as the use of a smartphone health app, to raise the quality of care and patients' health. Objective This survey was designed to create a trauma mHealth app for patient education and assistance, as well as the establishment of information and assistance among injured patients with disabilities, barriers to and facilitators of injury care services, and caregivers of an mHealth app for trauma and crisis care professionals. For contextual analysis and value determination, ten semistructured interviews with patients with trauma were conducted, as well as a focus group of 4 trauma care professionals were conducted. End users have many requirements for an mHealth solution that addresses psychosocial integration; reliable results; and, perhaps, a prediction of how a patient's recovery path is changing. The results show that iterative growth should shift from simple and cost-effective mHealth solutions to ones that are more suitable for larger innovations of care pathways that many but not so commonly used by trauma care users would be interested in.
