Bioacoustic analysis have been used for a variety of purposes including classifying vocalizations for biodiversity monitoring and understanding mechanisms of cognitive processes. A wide range of statistical methods, including various automated methods, have been used to successfully classify...
Combined in Vitro-in Silico Approach to Predict Deposition and Pharmacokinetics of Budesonide Dry Powder InhalersDownload
Ruzycki, C.A., Murphy, B., Nathoo, H., Finlay, W.H., and Martin, A.R.
Purpose: A combined in vitro – in silico methodology was designed to estimate pharmacokinetics of budesonide delivered via dry powder inhaler. Methods: Particle size distributions from three budesonide DPIs, measured with a Next Generation Impactor and Alberta Idealized Throat, were input into a...
Cahill, J. F., Mitchell, M. G. E., Hik, D. S.
We investigated whether plant interaction intensity in a subarctic-alpine meadow is important for determining community structure and species abundance. Using two common species as phytometers, we measured interaction intensity using a neighbor removal approach. Eight biotic and abiotic variables...
Karst, J., Cahill, J. F., Lyons, D.
This paper is the product of a seminar led by JC Cahill in response to a request by many graduate students and post-docs in our department to teach effective writing strategies. Rather than go over the mechanics of writing, JC introduced the concept of “pitch” and its importance in scientific...
Ideas about how plant competition varies with productivity are rooted in classic theories that predict either increasing (Grime) or invariant (Tilman) competition with increasing productivity. Both predictions have received experimental support, although a decade-old meta-analysis supports...
Limited effects of soil nutrient heterogeneity on populations of Abutilon theophrasti (Malvaceae)Download
An experiment was conducted to determine if spatial nutrient heterogeneity affects mean plant size or size hierarchies in experimental populations of the weedy annual Abutilon theophrasti Medic. (Malvaceae). Heterogeneity was imposed by alternating 8 X 8 X 10 cm blocks of low and high nutrient...
Direct and indirect drivers of plant diversity responses to climate and clipping across northern temperate grasslandDownload
Cahill, James F., Bork, Edward W., White, Shannon R.
It is well known that climate can influence plant community assembly via a multitude of indirect and direct pathways. However, interpretations of plant diversity responses to simulated climate change experiments, and subsequent predictions of plant communities under future climate scenarios,...
Population-level Responses to Nutrient Heterogeneity and Density by Abutilon Theophrasti (Malvaceae): An Experimental Neigborhood ApproachDownload
An experimental approach was used to examine the effects of spatial nutrient heterogeneity and planting density on the sizes of plants within populations of Abutilon theophrasti. Planting locations were generated using random numbers and replicated among populations growing on two different...
Prevalence and predictability of handling effects on plants in field studies: Results from field experiments and a meta-analysisDownload
Brown, M., Hik, D.S., Weir, J., Dabros, A., Cahill, J.F.
Various effects on plant growth associated with handling or touching plants are well documented from greenhouse and laboratory studies, but are generally unknown or ignored under field conditions. We examined the prevalence of the effects of handling, at levels typical of many ecological...
