Null-model validation of MLP input contribution analysis in ecology
(IEEE Computer Society, 2006-12)
A method is presented for applying a null-model analysis to the verification of the significance of the input neurons of Multi-Layer Perceptrons (MLP). This method was applied to a problem from ecology, namely the establishment ...
Using MLP to determine abiotic factors influencing the establishment of insect pest species
The use of multi-layer perceptrons (MLP) to determine the significance of climatic variables to the establishment of insect pest species is described. Results show that the MLP are able to learn to accurately predict the ...
The impact of floral resources and omnivory on a four trophic level food web
(Cambridge University Press, 2008-12-09)
Omnivory is common among arthropods, but little is known about how availability of plant resources and prey affects interactions between species operating at the third and fourth trophic level. We used laboratory and field ...
