Limiting behavior of the perturbed empirical distribution functions evaluated at U-statistics for strongly mixing sequences of random variables
We prove the almost sure representation, a law of the iterated logarithm and an invariance principle for the statistic Fˆn(Un) for a class of strongly mixing sequences of random variables {Xi,i≥1}.Expand

Adaptive significance of flexistyly in Alpinia blepharocalyx (Zingiberaceae): a hand-pollination experiment.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Flexistyly is a sexual dimorphism where there are two morphs that differ in the temporal expression of sexual function and also involve reciprocal movement of the stigmaticExpand

Life-history traits evolution across distribution ranges: how the joint evolution of dispersal and mating system favor the evolutionary stability of range limits?
The question of the stability of distribution ranges of species is fundamental in ecology. However, the way in which stable distribution ranges are shaped by natural selection is still poorlyExpand

Bandwidth Selection for Kernel Quantile Estimation
In this article, we summarize some quantile estimators and related bandwidth selection methods and give two new bandwidth selection methods. By four distributions: standard normal, exponential,Expand

Nonparametric Methods for Stratified Two-Sample Designs with Application to Multiclinic Trials
Abstract Motivated by some problems arising from multiclinic trials, we consider stratified two-sample designs. Nonparametric effects are defined and nonparametric hypotheses are formulated in aExpand

Consumer–resource dynamics of indirect interactions in a mutualism–parasitism food web module
Food web dynamics are well known to vary with indirect interactions, classic examples including apparent competition, intraguild predation, exploitative competition, and trophic cascades of foodExpand

Functional implications of the staminal lever mechanism in Salvia cyclostegia (Lamiaceae).
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Flower morphology and inflorescence architecture affect pollinator foraging behaviour and thereby influence the process of pollination and the reproductive success of plants. ThisExpand

NMDA receptors in the anterior cingulate cortex mediate pain-related aversion
Using a rat formalin-induced conditioned place avoidance (F-CPA) model and Fos immunohistochemistry, the present study observed the effect of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) andExpand
