Konik, Tarpan, European wild horse: An origin story with conservation implications

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Global Ecology and Conservation, Vol 32, Iss , Pp e01911- (2021)

Abstract: Horses are gaining importance in European nature conservation management, for which usually so-called primitive breeds are favored due to their claimed robustness. An increasingly popular breed, the Konik horse, is often said to be the direct descenden...

Species turnover reveals hidden effects of decreasing nitrogen deposition in mountain hay meadows

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): PeerJ, Vol 7, p e6347 (2019)

Abstract: Nitrogen (N) deposition is a major threat to biodiversity in many habitats. The recent introduction of cleaner technologies in Switzerland has led to a reduction in the emissions of nitrogen oxides, with a consequent decrease in N deposition. We examin...

Manipulating the Alpha Level Cannot Cure Significance Testing

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Frontiers in Psychology, Vol 9 (2018)

Abstract: We argue that making accept/reject decisions on scientific hypotheses, including a recent call for changing the canonical alpha level from p = 0.05 to p = 0.005, is deleterious for the finding of new discoveries and the progress of science. Given that ...

The earth is flat (p > 0.05): significance thresholds and the crisis of unreplicable research

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): PeerJ, Vol 5, p e3544 (2017)

Abstract: The widespread use of ‘statistical significance’ as a license for making a claim of a scientific finding leads to considerable distortion of the scientific process (according to the American Statistical Association). We review why degrading p-values in...

Shifts in vegetation phenology along flyways entail varying risks of mistiming in a migratory songbird

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Ecosphere, Vol 7, Iss 6, Pp n/a-n/a (2016)

Abstract: Abstract Long‐term shifts in vegetation phenology generally follow the pattern of global warming. Yet, topographical complexity and biome diversity cause uneven spatial trends in the phenological response of vegetation to climate change. If phenology c...

Nitrogen deposition and multi-dimensional plant diversity at the landscape scale

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Royal Society Open Science, Vol 2, Iss 4 (2015)

Abstract: Estimating effects of nitrogen (N) deposition is essential for understanding human impacts on biodiversity. However, studies relating atmospheric N deposition to plant diversity are usually restricted to small plots of high conservation value. Here, we...

Plants, birds and butterflies: short-term responses of species communities to climate warming vary by taxon and with altitude.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): PLoS ONE, Vol 9, Iss 1, p e82490 (2014)

Abstract: As a consequence of climate warming, species usually shift their distribution towards higher latitudes or altitudes. Yet, it is unclear how different taxonomic groups may respond to climate warming over larger altitudinal ranges. Here, we used data fro...

Communication in the third dimension: song perch height of rivals affects singing response in nightingales.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): PLoS ONE, Vol 7, Iss 3, p e32194 (2012)

Abstract: Many animals use long-range signals to compete over mates and resources. Optimal transmission can be achieved by choosing efficient signals, or by choosing adequate signalling perches and song posts. High signalling perches benefit sound transmission a...

Discuss practical importance of results based on interval estimates and p-value functions, not only on point estimates and null p-values

Publication Type: Periodical

Source(s): Journal of Information Technology; September 2022, Vol. 37 Issue: 3 p316-320, 5p

Abstract: It has long been argued that we need to consider much more than an observed point estimate and a p-value to understand statistical results. One of the most persistent misconceptions about p-values is that they are necessarily calculated assuming a null...
