An agent engaged in multi-issue automated negotiation can benefit greatly from learning about its opponent's preferences. Knowledge of the opponent's preferences can help the agent not only to find mutually acceptable agreements more quickly, but also to negotiate deals that are better for the agent in question. In this paper, we describe a new technique(More)

Negotiations are alternating offers, where each offer may have multiple attributes which can be scalar-, discrete-or set-valued, and so are general enough to allow P3P(More)
The black pygmy mussel Limnoperna securis (Lamarck 1819) is endemic to the brackish waters of New Zealand and Australia, but over the past decade, it has successfully invaded the inner Galician Rias of NW Spain. There is growing concern that L. securis will expand its range to the outer zones of the Rias, where it would pose a threat to the intensive raft(More)
Different combinations of behavioural and physiological responses may play a crucial role in the ecological success of species, notably in the context of biological invasions. The invasive mussel Xenostrobus securis has successfully colonised the inner part of the Galician Rias Baixas (NW Spain), where it co-occurs with the commercially-important mussel(More)
In Eastern Canada, an increasing number of pests, predators and pathogens in downriver areas (close to the ocean) have led the aquaculture industry to consider growing oysters in upriver areas (close to the river source). In this study, oyster growth performance was compared between downriver and upriver environments by means of stock transfer experiments(More)
