Department of Zoology and Physiology, University of Wyoming, P O Box 3166, Laramie, Wyoming 82071, USA
Am Nat 165:120-35. 2005..Our model is computationally intensive but provides a general framework for incorporating future changes in the size of multimember cooperative breeding groups...
- Inference in ecology and evolutionPhilip A Stephens
Department of Mathematics, University of Bristol, University Walk, Bristol, BS8 1TW, UK
Trends Ecol Evol 22:192-7. 2007..Although we should reduce our reliance on significance testing, it retains an important role in statistical education and is likely to remain fundamental to the falsification of scientific hypotheses...
- Evolution of trust and trustworthiness: social awareness favours personality differencesJohn M McNamara
Department of Mathematics, University of Bristol, Bristol BS8 1TW, UK
Proc Biol Sci 276:605-13. 2009..Our work adds to growing evidence that evolutionary game theorists can no longer afford to ignore the importance of real world inter-individual variation in their models...
- Why do we still use stepwise modelling in ecology and behaviour?Mark J Whittingham
Division of Biology, School of Biology and Psychology, University of Newcastle, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
J Anim Ecol 75:1182-9. 2006..In particular, the IT approach identifies large numbers of competing models that could describe the data equally well, showing that no one model should be relied upon for inference...
