    Research Interests Dr. Reaka and her laboratory have focused on biodiversity and extinction on coral reefs and in fossil and contemporary Crustacea, with applications to conservation and management of marine environments. Some of this work culminated in a book, Biodiversity II: Understanding and Protecting Our Natural Resources, which was co. A Summary of NIOSH Childhood Agricultural Injury Prevention Extramural Research under the Childhood Agricultural Injury Prevention Initiative: A Quindecennial () of Progress Apr Preventing Deaths and Injuries to Fire Fighters by Establishing Collapse Zones at Structure Fires. Previous efforts by the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL) to develop a life-cycle building model have resulted in the definition of a core building information model that contains general information describing facility assets such as spaces and equipment.

Even though the Laboratory's charter had completely evolved away from rockets and jets, "Jet Propulsion Laboratory" had become the official name and was retained. Another defining moment for America in space came inwhen the JPL-built Mariner 2 flew past Venus to become the world's first spacecraft to successfully encounter another planet.
