    • A data assimilation method for using low-resolution Earth observation data in heterogeneous ecosystems 

      Hill, T. C.; Quaife, T.; Williams, M. (2011-04-29) - Journal article
      We present an approach for dealing with coarse-resolution Earth observations (EO) in terrestrial ecosystem data assimilation schemes. The use of coarse-scale observations in ecological data assimilation schemes is complicated ...
    • The influence of intelligence on the endorsement of the intelligence–attractiveness halo 

      Talamas, Sean N.; Mavor, Kenneth I.; Perrett, David I. (2016-06) - Journal article
      While some theories emphasize the influence of the ‘attractiveness halo’ on perceptions of intelligence, empirical evidence suggests that perceptions of attractiveness themselves can be influenced by perceptions of other ...
    • Re-evaluation of individual diameter : height allometric models to improve biomass estimation of tropical trees 

      Ledo, Alicia; Cornulier, Thomas; Illian, Janine B.; Iida, Yoshiko; Kassim, Abdul Rahman; Burslem, David F. R. P. (2016-12-01) - Journal article
      Accurate estimation of tree biomass is necessary to provide realistic values of the carbon stored in the terrestrial biosphere. A recognized source of errors in tree above-ground biomass (AGB) estimation is introduced when ...
    • RNA virus attenuation by codon pair deoptimisation is an artefact of increases in CpG/UpA dinucleotide frequencies 

      Tulloch, F.; Atkinson, N. J.; Evans, David John; Ryan, M. D.; Simmonds, P. (2014-12-09) - Journal article
      Mutating RNA virus genomes to alter codon pair (CP) frequencies and reduce translation efficiency has been advocated as a method to generate safe, attenuated virus vaccines. However, selection for disfavoured CPs leads to ...
    • Some myths about Ethnocentrism 

      Etinson, Adam (2018) - Journal article
      Ethnocentrism, it is said, involves believing certain things to be true: that one's culture is superior to others, more deserving of respect, or at the 'centre' of things. On the alternative view defended in this article, ...
    • Underestimation of Pearson's product moment correlation statistic 

      Humphreys, Rosalind K.; Puth, Marie-Therese; Neuhäuser, Markus; Ruxton, Graeme Douglas (2019-01) - Journal article
      Pearson’s product moment correlation coefficient (more commonly Pearson’s r) tends to underestimate correlations that exist in the underlying population. This phenomenon is generally unappreciated in studies of ecology, ...
    • White bias in 3-7 year-old children across cultures 

      Gibson, Bentley; Robbins, Erin; Rochat, Philippe (2015) - Journal article
      In three studies we report data confirming and extending the finding of a tendency toward a White preference bias by young children of various ethnic backgrounds. European American preschoolers who identify with a White ...
