  • Are Inventory Based and Remotely Sensed Above-Ground Biomass Estimates Consistent? 

    Hill, TC; Williams, M; Bloom, AA; Mitchard, ETA; Ryan, CM (Public Library of Science, 2013-09-19)
    Carbon emissions resulting from deforestation and forest degradation are poorly known at local, national and global scales. In part, this lack of knowledge results from uncertain above-ground biomass estimates. It is ...
  • Are the effects of response inhibition on gambling long-lasting? 

    Verbruggen, Frederick; Adams, Rachel; van 't Wout, Felice; Stevens, Tobias; McLaren, Ian P.L.; Chambers, Christopher D. (Public Library of Science, 2013)
    A recent study has shown that short-term training in response inhibition can make people more cautious for up to two hours when making decisions. However, the longevity of such training effects is unclear. In this study ...
