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… Expand
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.

This study is among the first to test a priori hypotheses about the relationships among phylogeny, phenotypic evolution, geographic spread, and net species diversification, and to argue for causality to flow from functional diversity to spatial expansion to species diversity. Expand
The BaBar detector
BABAR, the detector for the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric e+e- B Factory operating at the upsilon 4S resonance, was designed to allow comprehensive studies of CP-violation in B-meson decays. Charged… Expand
Phylogeny of Bromelioideae (Bromeliaceae) inferred from nuclear and plastid DNA loci reveals the evolution of the tank habit within the subfamily.
The character state reconstruction reveals the great importance of the evolution of the tank habit for the diversification of the core bromelioids and the highly problematic generic concept of Aechmea as well as Quesnelia. Expand

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. Expand
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.

Molecular Phylogenetics of Bromeliaceae: Evidence from trnL(UAA) Intron Sequences of the Chloroplast Genome
Phylogenetic relationships within Bromeliaceae were assessed by comparative sequencing of chloroplast trnL(UAA) intronic DNA and there is evidence that the genera Tillandsia, Vriesea, Guzmania, Abromeitiella, Deuterocohnia, Dyckia, Pitcairnia and Aechmea in the present circumscription are not monophyletic.
