ATLAS pixel detector electronics and sensors
The silicon pixel tracking system for the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider is described and the performance requirements are summarized. Detailed descriptions of the pixel detector…
Phylogeny, adaptive radiation, and historical biogeography in Bromeliaceae: insights from an eight-locus plastid phylogeny.
A bromeliad phylogeny based on eight plastid regions is used to analyze relationships within the family, test a new, eight-subfamily classification, infer the chronology of b romeliad evolution and invasion of different regions, and provide the basis for future analyses of trait evolution and rates of diversification.
Adaptive radiation, correlated and contingent evolution, and net species diversification in Bromeliaceae.
DISENTANGLING THE EFFECTS OF KEY INNOVATIONS ON THE DIVERSIFICATION OF BROMELIOIDEAE (BROMELIACEAE)
A novel Bayesian implementation of the phylogenetic comparative method, binary state speciation and extinction, is developed, which enables hypotheses testing by Bayes factors and accommodates the uncertainty on model selection by Bayesian model averaging.
Phylogeny of Bromelioideae (Bromeliaceae) inferred from nuclear and plastid DNA loci reveals the evolution of the tank habit within the subfamily.
TRY plant trait database – enhanced coverage and open access
The extent of the trait data compiled in TRY is evaluated and emerging patterns of data coverage and representativeness are analyzed to conclude that reducing data gaps and biases in the TRY database remains a key challenge and requires a coordinated approach to data mobilization and trait measurements.
A Bayesian framework to estimate diversification rates and their variation through time and space
A new approach to estimate diversification rates in a Bayesian framework over a distribution of trees under various constant and variable rate birth-death and pure-birth models is introduced, and it is demonstrated that speciation and extinction rates and their posterior credibility intervals can be estimated while accounting for non-random taxon sampling.
