A Spatial Scan Statistic for Compound Poisson Data, Using Negative Binomial Distribution and Accounting for Population StratificationDownload
Chang, Hsing-Ming, Rosychuk, Rhonda J.
Since the interest in studying spatial relations in plant populations was raised in the 1950s, much effort has been devoted to the development of methods for spatial data analysis. One such development focused on techniques for detecting spatial clusters of cases and events in the biological...
The procambium specification gene Oshox1 promotes polar auxin transport capacity and reduces its sensitivity toward inhibitionDownload
Meijer, A. H., Reub, S., Boot, K. J. M., Scarpella, E.
The auxin-inducible homeobox gene Oshox1 of rice (Oryza sativa) is a positive regulator of procambial cell fate commitment, and its overexpression reduces the sensitivity of polar auxin transport (PAT) to the PAT inhibitor 1-N-naphthylphthalamic acid (NPA). Here, we show that wild-type rice...

Data from carcasses of 210 cattle (119 bulls and 91 steers) from 4 breed types, serially slaughtered from = 200-008kg kg liveweight were used to test the hypothesis of similar gender dimorphism among breeds in relation to carcass bone growth and distribution. Relative to total bone weight, breed...
Isomer profiles of perfluorochemicals in matched maternal, cord and house dust samples: manufacturing sources and transplacental transfer.Download
Shoeib, M., Webster, G., Harner, T., Benskin, J. P., Beesoon. S., Martin, J. W.
Background: Perfluorochemicals (PFCs) are detectable in the general population and in the human environment, including house dust. Sources are not well characterized, but isomer patterns should enable differentiation of historical and contemporary manufacturing sources. Isomer-specific...
Many autecological effects of temperature on fish are known, and fishery biologists have begun to incorporate this knowledge into population-level relations that can be used to assess possible effects of climatic warming on fishes and their habitats. However, the problem of extrapolating these or...
Could the lateral transfer of nutrients by outbreaking insects be a relevant landscape-level biogeochemical process?Download
Parrott, Lael, Landry, Jean-Sébastien
The processes that transfer nutrients laterally over large distances are limited within ter-restrial ecosystems. Here, we present the hypothesis that outbreaking insects can sometimes transport consequential amounts of embodied nutrients over long distances, thereby connecting ecological...

On 23 November 2012, a sudden dropout of the relativistic electron flux was observed after an interplanetary shock arrival. The dropout peaks at ∼1 MeV and more than 80% of the electrons disappeared from the drift shell. Van Allen twin Probes observed a sharp electron flux dropout with clear...
