Falster says it will be extremely helpful to now have a general method that simultaneously estimates the likelihoods of the two primary hazards faced by plants — and that their new method would correct some old assumptions. Our results show that risks due to other factors cannot be entirely avoided by fast growth.
Falster says their study is part of a new wave of ecology, combining state of the art statistical analysis with large datasets. The results here arose from a unique combination of decades of monitoring done by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama, combined with state-of-the-art statistical analysis developed in collaboration with researchers from UNSW, Macquarie University, and CSIRO's data The team now hopes to extend the research to forests all over the world — and to potentially use the method to predict the effects of climate change.

Product Highlights About This Item We aim to show you accurate product information. Manufacturers, suppliers and others provide what you see here, and we have not verified it. See our disclaimer. Finally available after three decades, a lost classic of the Harlem Renaissance that Langston Hughes acclaimed for its "hard poetic beauty. His work was closest to that of Jean Toomer and Zora Neale Hurston with its striking use of dialect and its insights into the daily lives of the people around him.
This book of stories viscerally charts the days of men working stone quarries or building the Panama Canal, of women tending gardens and rearing needy children. Early on addressing issues of skin color and class, Walrond imbued his stories with a remarkable compassion for lives controlled by the whims of nature. Despite his early celebrity, he died in London in with minimal recognition given to his passing. Arnold Rampersad s elegant introduction reclaims this classic work and positions Walrond alongside the prominent writers of his age.
