The climate predictors were derived from a general circulation model (CCCMA: CGCM2) for 2080, under the IPCC emission scenarios (SRES; A2a and B2a) for predicting future potential distribution areas (http://gisweb.ciat.cgiar.org/GCMPage; Ramirez & Jarvis, 2008).
Indeed, according to a study carried out among the gold mines of rural Tanzania (which B2A treats via a 'flying dental service') more time is lost by the mines' drivers to dental pain than to complications from malaria.
Under B2a, most of Tanzania experience a smaller increase in temperature, around 2.5-3.5[degrees]C, and although the same regions as before see the largest increases in [R.sub.0], these increases are considerably less than under A2a because of the nonlinear dependence of [R.sub.0] on temperature.
The maximum reduction was predicted in A2a, while the minimum reduction was in GGa1, with a moderate reduction in B2a. The differences of precipitation variances were much greater between scenarios than between spatial scales within each scenario.
Peck: What about cases, though, in which there is simple confusion--for example, providers have raised concerns about interpretations of Section G1 (Activities of Daily Living), Section E (Mood and Behavior), Section N (Skin Condition) and Item B2a (Short-term Memory)--and this confusion is apparently getting them into trouble?
