Abstract

Generally, official statistical reports provide information on the pollution extent over a region using the average records from all the observation sites. In the outliers' presence, the average is not a good choice. Therefore, in this article, we propose two alternatives for replacing the average...

Cover for Species abundance, accumulation and diversity data.

Ecologists in particular are often interested in the species richness and diversity of groups of organisms, ranging from studies of small ecosystems to global patterns. In most cases it is not possible to count every individual or to detect every species, and so they use a variety of estimation...

Cover for Spacing in two dimensions.

There are many interesting questions in biology that revolve around the spacing of individuals, for example in territoriality, or spatial clumping of genotypes. This chapter gives a very brief demonstration from basics of looking at the randomness of spacing of a sedentary, but not immobile animal, ...

Abstract

Crop harvesting has been pointed as the main source of soil compaction in sugarcane fields because of the high stresses induced by the machinery; however, little is known about the magnitude of the stress transmitted to the soil by these machines in the compaction process. The aim of this study was ...

Abstract

The shear strength originating from the root system of vegetation that mechanically stabilizes a soil slope against shallow landslides is called "root cohesion". The magnitude of the root cohesion depends on the root architecture and root tensile strength, which are well known to have high...
