Abstract:
North Carolina's coastal region has a long history of development that is most concentrated in oceanfront regions such as the Outer Banks and other barrier island beach communities. As land becomes scarce in oceanfront regions, interior coastal zones have the potential to act as outlets to absorb development pressure related to amenity, retirement, and working-age in-migrants. With this inland coastal boom, North Carolina is seeing different types of land cover change.

Abstract:
Most people would correctly guess that Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF) originated somewhere in the Rocky Mountain region of the U.S. Even geographers, however, might be surprised to learn that the disease has long been insignificant in its region of origin, yet is increasingly prevalent in the southeast, particularly in North Carolina. This article examines the disease from a geographic perspective, looking at its history, cultural ecology, prevalence in North Carolina, and possible intervention.
