- Dynamics of the Neoproterozoic carbon cycle
Daniel H Rothman

Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA

*Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A* 100:8124-9. 2003

..The terminal event, at the Proterozoic-Cambrian boundary, signals the final diminution of the reservoir, a process that was likely initiated by evolutionary innovations that increased export of organic matter to the deep sea...

- Re-examination of the "3/4-law" of metabolism
P S Dodds

Department of Mathematics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA

*J Theor Biol* 209:9-27. 2001

..We find that present theories for alpha = 3/4 require assumptions that render them unconvincing for rejecting the null hypothesis that alpha = 2/3...

- Geometry of river networks. I. Scaling, fluctuations, and deviations
P S Dodds

Department of Mathematics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA

*Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys* 63:016115. 2001

P S Dodds

Department of Mathematics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA

*Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys* 63:016116. 2001
