Diversity and its Impact on Organizational Performance: The Influence of Diversity Constructions on Expectations and Outcomes
(Universidad Alberto Hurtado. Facultad de Economía y Negocios, 2014)
Components of woody plant diversity in semi-arid Chaco forests with heterogeneous land use and disturbance histories
(Academic Press Ltd - Elsevier Science Ltd, 2012-10)
We assessed components of woody plant diversity within and between 16 sites dispersed across the nearly 200,000 ha of the Semi-arid Chaco vegetation of the Copo Conservation Unit, northern Argentina. Argentina's Semi-arid ...
Diversity control for improving the analysis of consensus clustering
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2016-09)
Consensus clustering has emerged as a powerful technique for obtaining better clustering results, where a set of data partitions (ensemble) are generated, which are then combined to obtain a consolidated solution (consensus ...
The diversity of diversity: further methodological considerations on the use of the concept in cultural economics
(Escola de Pós-Graduação em Economia da FGV, 2006-10-01)
The implications of diversity still raise confusion in the cultural debate. We address them from both a formal and conceptual viewpoints, putting in check the validity of some arguments. We conclude that: measuring diversity ...
Spatial patterns of species richness and phylogenetic diversity of woody plants in the neotropical savannas of Brazil
(Soc Botanica Sao Paulo, 2014-09-01)
Savanna woody plant communities are widespread in Brazil, where this vegetation type can be divided into core-central and marginal areas within its range of distribution. The study of diversity patterns of plant communities ...
Low Genetic Diversity Among Garlic (Allium sativum L.) Accessions Detected Using Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD)
(Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias, INIA, 2008)
Should phylogenetic and functional diversity metrics compose macroinvertebrate multimetric indices for stream biomonitoring?
The idea behind multimetric indices is to integrate information from several metrics to provide a general classification of water bodies without losing the particularities of each individual metric. Historically, multimetric ...
Expected impacts of climate change threaten the anuran diversity in the Brazilian hotspots
We performed Ecological Niche Models (ENMs) to generate climatically suitable areas for anurans in the Brazilian hotspots, the Atlantic Forest (AF), and Cerrado (CER), considering the baseline and future climate change ...
