SID — Potential Collaborations

Wherever possible, we will collaborate with other researchers and owners of large comparative datasets. Collaboration involves activities like us running species lists against SID for matches (more convenient than record by record on-line). We have previously shared large amounts of data from the database with collaborators (and are keen to do so in future) under the terms of a data transfer agreement, and with appropriate arrangements for acknowledgement and, where appropriate, authorship in any papers arising.

A couple of examples of papers resulting from previous collaborations are:

Moles et al; 2005; A Brief History of Seed Size; Science; 307(5709): 576-580

Tweddle et al; 2003; Ecological Aspects of Seed Desiccation Sensitivity; Journal of Ecology; 91(2)294-304
