The influence of crab burrows on sediment salinity in a Rhizophora-dominated mangrove forest in North Brazil during the dry season (2017)
Journal Article
Pestana, D. F., Pülmanns, N., Nordhaus, I., Diele, K., & Zimmer, M. (2017). The influence of crab burrows on sediment salinity in a Rhizophora-dominated mangrove forest in North Brazil during the dry season. Hydrobiologia, 803(1), 295-305. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10750-017-3282-4

Many ecological processes are influenced by salinity. Burrowing crabs, abundant fauna of mangrove forests around the world, can facilitate sediment water fluxes, which may decrease the salinity in mangrove sediments. We investigated whether and how c...

A standard data model representation for taxonomic information. (2006)
Journal Article
Kennedy, J., Hyam, R., Kukla, R., & Paterson, T. (2006). A standard data model representation for taxonomic information. OMICS, 10, 220-230. https://doi.org/10.1089/omi.2006.10.220

The names used by biologists to label the observations they make are imprecise. This is an issue as workers increasingly seek to exploit data gathered from multiple, unrelated sources on line. Even when the international codes of nomenclature are fol... Read More about A standard data model representation for taxonomic information..

A dynamic CSTT model for the effects of added nutrients in Loch Creran, a shallow fjord (2006)
Journal Article
Laurent, C., Tett, P., Fernandes, T., Gilpin, L., & Jones, K. (2006). A dynamic CSTT model for the effects of added nutrients in Loch Creran, a shallow fjord. Journal of Marine Systems, 61(3-4), 149-164. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jmarsys.2005.05.007

Despite a tendency for the complexity of physical–biological models to increase, simple coupled models remain useful for some applications and can provide insights into crucial links between physical and biological processes. This argument is illustr... Read More about A dynamic CSTT model for the effects of added nutrients in Loch Creran, a shallow fjord.

Millisia brevis gen. nov., sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from activated sludge foam. (2006)
Journal Article
Soddell, J. A., Stainsby, F. M., Eales, K. L., Kroppenstedt, R. M., Seviour, R. J., & Goodfellow, M. (2006). Millisia brevis gen. nov., sp. nov., an actinomycete isolated from activated sludge foam. International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology, 56, 739-744. https://doi.org/10.1099/ijs.0.63855-0

The taxonomic position of two mycolic-acid-producing actinomycetes, isolates J81T and J82, which were recovered from activated sludge foam, was clarified. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequence studies indicated that the organisms formed a distinct linea...

The Prometheus Description Model: an examination of the taxonomic description-building process and its representation (2005)
Journal Article
Pullan, M. R., Armstrong, K. E., Paterson, T., Cannon, A., Kennedy, J. B., Watson, M. F., …Raguenaud, C. (2005). The Prometheus Description Model: an examination of the taxonomic description-building process and its representation. Taxon, 54(3), 751-765. https://doi.org/10.2307/25065431

A model for representing taxonomic descriptive data is presented. The model has been developed in response to the growing requirement for the global exchange of descriptive data. Meaningful exchange of data requires that data be represented in a form...

Extending taxonomic visualisation to incorporate synonymy and structural markers. (2005)
Journal Article
Graham, M., & Kennedy, J. (2005). Extending taxonomic visualisation to incorporate synonymy and structural markers. Information Visualization, 4, 206-223. https://doi.org/10.1057/palgrave.ivs.9500096

The visualisation of taxonomic hierarchies has evolved from indented lists of names to techniques that can display thousands of nodes and onto hundreds of thousands of nodes over multiple taxonomies. However, challenges remain within multiple hierarc... Read More about Extending taxonomic visualisation to incorporate synonymy and structural markers..

Implementation of the Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a comparison of database models and query languages and an introduction to the Prometheus Object-Oriented Model. (2002)
Journal Article
Raguenaud, C., Pullan, M. R., Watson, M. F., Kennedy, J., Newman, M. F., & Barclay, P. J. (2002). Implementation of the Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a comparison of database models and query languages and an introduction to the Prometheus Object-Oriented Model. Taxon, 51(1), 131-142. https://doi.org/10.2307/1554970

Types of databases commonly used for handling taxonomic data are compared. It is shown that none of the existing types of databases fully support the requirements of taxonomic data. The results of this comparison provide a rationale for the design an...

Visualising multiple overlapping classification hierarchies. (2001)
Thesis
Graham, M. Visualising multiple overlapping classification hierarchies. (Thesis). Napier University. Retrieved from http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/id/eprint/2430

The revision or reorganisation of hierarchical data sets can result in many possible hierarchical classifications composed of the same or overlapping data sets existing in parallel with each other. These data sets are difficult for people to handle a... Read More about Visualising multiple overlapping classification hierarchies..
