Distributions of gene tree branch lengths under coalescence
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2008)
In Bayesian phylogenetic inference, commonly used prior distributions for branch lengths are the uniform, exponential, and gamma distributions. We derive the exact distributions of branch lengths of gene trees under a fixed ...
A New Adaptive Sequential Design for Sampling Rare and Clustered Populations
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and StatisticsUniversity of Canterbury. Management, 2008)
Designing an efficient large-area survey is a challenge for ecologists. Adaptive sampling designs can be efficient because it ensures survey effort is targeted to subareas of high interest. In two-stage sampling, higher ...
