  • Sloan, William; Woodcock, Stephen; Lunn, Mary; Head, Ian; Curtis, Thomas (Springer, 2007)
    We show that inferring the taxa-abundance distribution of a microbial community from small environmental samples alone is difficult. The difficulty stems from the disparity in scale between the number of genetic sequences ...
  • Woodcock, Stephen; Besemer, Katharina; Battin, Tom; Curtis, Thomas; Sloan, William (Blackwell, 2013)
    The spatial distribution of microbial taxa is determined primarily by physical and chemical environments and by dispersal. In a homogeneous landscape with limited dispersal, the similarity in abundance of taxa in samples ...
  • Woodcock, Stephen; Van Der Gast, Christopher; Bell, Thomas; Lunn, Mary; Curtis, Thomas; Head, Ian; Sloan, William (Wiley-Blackwell, 2007)
    Two recent, independent advances in ecology have generated interest and controversy: the development of neutral community models (NCMs) and the extension of biogeographical relationships into the microbial world. Here these ...
  • Sloan, William; Lunn, Mary; Woodcock, Stephen; Head, Ian; Nee, Sean; Curtis, Thomas (Wiley, 2006)
    Naturally occurring populations of bacteria and archaea are vital to life on the earth and are of enormous practical significance in medicine, engineering and agriculture. However, the rules governing the formation of such ...
  • Woodcock, Stephen; Curtis, Thomas; Head, Ian; Lunn, Mary; Sloan, William (Wiley-Blackwell, 2006)
    The recent observation of a power?law relationship, S ? Az, between number of taxa, S, and area, A, for microbial eukaryotes and bacteria suggests that this is one of the few generic relationships in ecology, applicable ...
  • Curtis, Thomas; Head, Ian; Lunn, Mary; Woodcock, Stephen; Schloss, Patrick; Sloan, William (Royal Society Publishing, 2006)
    The extent of microbial diversity is an intrinsically fascinating subject of profound practical importance. The term `diversity? may allude to the number of taxa or species richness as well as their relative abundance. ...
