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 metabolismP 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 deviationsP S Dodds

Department of Mathematics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA*Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys*63:016115. 2001..The extent of approximate scaling is significantly restricted by these deviations, and will not be improved by increases in network resolution... - Geometry of river networks. II. Distributions of component size and numberP S Dodds

Department of Mathematics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA*Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys*63:016116. 2001..The calculations identify a single length scale as a measure of size fluctuations in network components. This article is the second in a series of three addressing the geometry of river networks... - Geometry of river networks. III. Characterization of component connectivityP S Dodds

Department of Mathematics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA*Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys*63:016117. 2001..Fluctuations in side stream numbers are shown to be a direct result of fluctuations in stream lengths. This is the last paper in a series of three on the geometry of river networks...
