Infant colic is a very common disorder of the first three months of life in healthy infants and the worldwide incidence is 20-30% of all pediatric visits. The most common symptom of infantile colic is fussing and inconsolable crying associated with aerophagia and leg contractions occurring in the late afternoon and evening due to abdominal pain in otherwise healthy infants younger than 3 months of age. Pediatricians differentiate this condition from other diseases (gastroesophageal reflux, otitis,...

Coral reefs worldwide are in decline, likely as a result of human carelessness and exploitation. This has been documented by a multitude of studies conducted over the last few decades. But it becomes even more obvious just by looking at different reef locations along a gradient of human exposure. Past and upcoming expeditions to the Central Pacific, particularly to the Line Islands, provide an undeceiving picture of how anthropogenic influence – even as marginal as on those remote islands – changes...
