Increased external nutrient loads of anthropogenic origin, especially those of phosphorus (P), were one of the major causes of eutrophication during the first half of the twentieth century in Europe. They led to deterioration of lake ecosystems, particularly including noxious blooms of (potentially toxic) cyanobacteria. From the 1970–1980s, strategies to… (More)
Quantitative mass spectrometry for proteomics: Teaching a new dog old tricks.
The Biostatistics and Methodological Innovation Working (BMIW) Group is one of several working groups within the CANadian Network and Centre for Trials INternationally (CANNeCTIN). This programme received funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Canada Foundation for Innovation beginning in 2008, to enhance the infrastructure and… (More)
We propose graphical diagnostic tools to assess the fit of a bivariate accelerated lifetime regression model. Using univariate residuals for each response measurement in a pair, we assess their dependence structure via the bivariate probability integral transformation of univariate residuals, which we call V-residuals. To reduce the computational burden… (More)
As a cooperative effort between the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), the Turtle Conservancy, and the United States Geological Survey (USGS), we have developed an outline for reintroducing western pond turtles (Emys pallida) into an urban waterway in the Los Angeles area. First, we present a brief literature review covering the biology and… (More)
