ABBOT is the hybrid connectionist-hidden Markov model large-vocabulary speech recognition system developed at Cambridge University. In this system, a recurrent network maps each acoustic vector to an estimate of the posterior probabilities of the phone classes. The maximum likelihood word string is then extracted using Markov models. As in traditional(More)
This paper describes the development of a connectionist-hidden Markov model (HMM) system for the 1997 DARPA Hub-4E CSR evaluations. We describe both system development and the enhancements designed to improve performance on broadcast news data. Both multilayer perceptron (MLP) and recurrent neural network acoustic models have been investigated. We assess(More)
Invasion by the African grass Andropogon gayanus is drastically altering the understory structure of oligotrophic savannas in tropical Australia. We compared nitrogen (N) relations and phenology of A. gayanus and native grasses to examine the impact of invasion on N cycling and to determine possible reasons for invasiveness of A. gayanus. Andropogon gayanus(More)
The loss of a pregnancy in the first trimester is a common event and recent research has identified high levels of psychological distress amongst women who have miscarried. We believe this study is the first to examine the phenomenon from a longitudinal perspective using standardized measures. A sample of 65 women was rated for anxiety and depression using(More)

[1] Current good practice guidelines for national greenhouse gas inventories requires that seasonal variation in emission factors from savanna fires be considered when compiling national accounts. African studies concluded that the emission factor for methane decreases during the dry season principally due to curing of the fuels. However, available data(More)

Landscape fires show large variability in the amount of biomass or fuel consumed per unit area burned. These fuel consumption (FC) rates depend on the biomass available to burn and the fraction of the biomass that is actually combusted, and can be combined with estimates of area burned to assess emissions. While burned area can be 5 detected from space and(More)
North Australian tropical savanna accounts for 12% of the world's total savanna land cover. Accordingly, understanding processes that govern carbon, water and energy exchange within this biome is critical to global carbon and water budgeting. Climate and disturbances drive ecosystem carbon dynamics. Savanna ecosystems of the coastal and sub-coastal of north(More)
