eBird: A citizen-based bird observation network in the biological sciences
New technologies are rapidly changing the way we collect, archive, analyze, and share scientific data. For example, over the next several years it is estimated that more than one billion autonomousExpand

Data-intensive science applied to broad-scale citizen science.
We describe how advances in data-intensive science provide accurate estimates in species distributions at continental scales by identifying complex environmental associations. Expand

Detecting statistical interactions with additive groves of trees
We present a new approach for the problem of interaction detection, based on comparing the performance of unrestricted and restricted prediction models, where restricted models are prevented from modeling an interaction in question. Expand

Spatiotemporal exploratory models for broad-scale survey data.
The distributions of animal populations change and evolve through time. Migratory species exploit different habitats at different times of the year. Biotic and abiotic features that determine where aExpand

Data-Intensive Science: A New Paradigm for Biodiversity Studies
We believe that a data-driven approach is necessary in biodiversity studies because of the complexity of ecological systems, particularly when viewed at large spatial and temporal scales. Expand

Abundance models improve spatial and temporal prioritization of conservation resources.
Conservation prioritization requires knowledge about organism distribution and density. This information is often inferred from models that estimate the probability of species occurrence rather thanExpand

sigmaB-dependent gene induction and expression in Listeria monocytogenes during osmotic and acid stress conditions simulating the intestinal environment.
Listeria monocytogenes must overcome a variety of stress conditions in the host digestive tract to cause foodborne infections. The alternative sigma factor sigma(B), encoded by sigB, is responsibleExpand

Data-Mining Discovery of Pattern and Process in Ecological Systems
We present the distinctions between data-mining (usually exploratory) and parametric statistical (confirmatory) analyses and propose useful ways in which data mining and statistical analyses can be integrated into a thorough analysis of data. Expand

eBird: Engaging Birders in Science and Conservation
How do you successfully engage an audience in a citizen-science project? The processes developed by eBird (www.ebird.org), a fast-growing web-based tool that now gathers millions of bird observationsExpand
