PMID: 29713272
DOI: 10.3389/fninf.2018.00018

[…] testing. Commonly used frameworks include Travis CI (Continuous Integration), Circle CI, Jenkins, and AppVeyor.Whenever possible, use reliable model development platforms such as NEST, BRIAN, NEURON, MOOSE, NENGO, PyNN, etc. This will increase the likelihood of accurate simulation and will enhance sharing. Similarly, model components should be taken from reliable databases of morphologies, channel […]


Competition between apex predators? Brown bears decrease wolf kill rate on two continents

PMCID: 5310606
PMID: 28179516

[…] near the home site; see electronic supplementary material, appendix S1). Model variables in the SCA candidate model set included bear presence, Julian kill date (139–193), pack size (2–9), prey type, moose density (0.02–0.68) and distance to nearest road (0.008–1.16 km). Model variables in the YNP candidate model set included bear presence, Julian kill date (120–211), pack size (2–15), prey type, […]


Effects of interspecific interaction linked habitat factors on moose resource selection and environmental stress

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5269734
PMID: 28128311
DOI: 10.1038/srep41514

[…] Resource selection models suggested that moose had uniform preferences for some sympatric interspecific interaction-linked habitat factors at the regional scale (Extend Data Table 1). At the regional scale, the three habitat variables were e […]


Experimental moose reduction lowers wolf density and stops decline of endangered caribou

PMCID: 5580390
PMID: 28875080
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.3736
call_split See protocol

[…] Caribou abundance, adult survival and recruitment estimates were compared across treatment and reference areas, and before and after the moose reduction was initiated. Caribou censuses were conducted every two years on average, from March to early April when they were high in the mountains and their tracks in open snowfields made them […]


Synaptic input sequence discrimination on behavioral timescales mediated by reaction diffusion chemistry in dendrites

PMCID: 5426902

[…] i distribution and we therefore fitted a GLMM with a binomial distribution and logit function (lme4 package in R 3.1.2 []). We used a subsample of the total dataset including 365 wolf kills including moose (n = 258) and roe deer (n = 107) from the 16 (one territory excluded: Tenskog) wolf territories for which we could obtain estimates of local (kill site) prey densities and data on snow depth. Be […]
