A review of some ecological factors affecting the growth of Azolla spp.
The genus Azolla forms a group of small-leafed, floating aquatic ferns native to the tropics, subtropics, and warm temperate regions of Africa, Asia, and America. For several decades, these fernsExpand

Application of genetic algorithm and greedy stepwise to select input variables in classification tree models for the prediction of habitat requirements of Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) in Anzali
The aim of the present study was to predict to what extent wetland characteristics can affect the habitat requirements of an exotic species, Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) in wetland. Biotic and abioticExpand

Use of support vector machines (SVMs) to predict distribution of an invasive water fern Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) in Anzali wetland, southern Caspian Sea, Iran
Support vector machines (SVMs) methods were used to predict distribution pattern of Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) which is an invasive aquatic fern at Selkeh Wildlife Refuge located in Anzali wetlandExpand

Application of classification trees to model the distribution pattern of a new exotic species Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) at Selkeh Wildlife Refuge, Anzali wetland, Iran
Alien species have the abilities to alter the ecosystems they invade. We used classification trees (CTs) to predict the distribution of an exotic species, Azolla filiculoides (Lam.), at SelkehExpand

Sensitivity of modelled gross primary productivity to topographic effects on surface radiation: A case study in the Cotter River Catchment, Australia
Gross primary productivity (GPP) is a critical response variable for many environmental problems, including terrestrial carbon accounting and the calculation of catchment water balances. VariousExpand

Analysis of environmental factors determining distribution pattern of Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) azollaceae in Anzali wetland, northern Iran.
The first consideration in predictive ecological modelling is the selection of appropriate input variables. Numerous variables can, however, be involved whereas most of them cannot be omitted fromExpand

Habitat suitability modelling in auto-ecology analysis of Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) azollaceae in Selkeh wildlife refuge (Iran).
Invasive aquatic species are more and more becoming a worldwide problem. Especially exotic species are affecting biodiversity. They may substantially change communities and ecosystems. AzollaExpand
An investigation on the climate and ecology of the southeast region of the Caspian Sea in the first millennium AD based on archaeological data
The vegetation covering of a region has a direct correlation with climate. So if data is available for vegetation cover, the second variable (climate) can be easily predicted and in reverse. TheExpand

Genetic algorithm and greedy stepwise methods for optimization of predictive Azolla filiculoides (Lam.) based on classification trees
Cover percentage of Azolla and 33 wetland characteristics were collected at the Selkeh wildlife refuge, in Anzali wetland, northern Iran in over the study period 2007-2008. Classification tree (CT)Expand
