      Automated species recognition of antbirds in a Mexican rainforest using hidden Markov models 

      Trifa, V. M.; Kirschel, A. N. G.; Taylor, C. E.; Vallejo, E. E. (2008)
      Behavioral and ecological studies would benefit from the ability to automatically identify species from acoustic recordings. The work presented in this article explores the ability of hidden Markov models to distinguish ...

      Between-island compositional dissimilarity of avian communities 

      Pitta, Eva; Kassara, Christina; Tzanatos, Evangelos; Giokas, Sinos; Sfenthourakis, Spyros (2014)
      Compositional dissimilarity patterns of biotic communities can vary among different types of insular systems and among taxa with different dispersal abilities. In this work we examined compositional dissimilarity patterns ...

      Deterministic assembly and anthropogenic extinctions drive convergence of island bird communities 

      Triantis, Kostas A.; Rigal, Francois; Whittaker, Robert J.; Hume, Julian P.; Sheard, Catherine; Poursanidis, Dimitrios; Rolland, Jonathan; Sfenthourakis, Spyros; Matthews, Thomas J.; Thebaud, Christophe; Tobias, Joseph A. (Wiley, 2022-06-10)
      Aim Whether entire communities of organisms converge towards predictable structural properties in similar environmental conditions remains controversial. We tested for community convergence in birds by comparing the ...

      The evolutionary consequences of interspecific aggression 

      Grether, G. F.; Anderson, Christopher N.; Drury, J. P.; Kirschel, A. N. G.; Losin, N.; Okamoto, K.; Peiman, K. S. (2013)
      Competition has always been a cornerstone of evolutionary biology, and aggression is the predominant form of direct competition in animals, but the evolutionary effects of aggression between species are curiously understudied. ...
