James J Roper

I am interested in population dynamics of terrestrial vertebrates. To understand these dynamics, I use a combination of field data (usually with birds) and simulations. I am particularly interested in life histories of tropical and subtropical birds.

Mikael Skoglund

Mikael Skoglund received the PhD degree in 1997 from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. In 1997, he joined the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, where he was appointed to the Chair in Communication Theory in 2003. At KTH, he heads the Communication Theory Division and he is the Assistant Dean for Electrical Engineering. Skoglunds primary research interest is information theory and its applications. He has authored more than 120 journal and 270 conference papers.

Gavin B Stewart

Gavin is interested in applied research synthesis (combining scientific information to inform policy). Primary interests are meta-analysis and Bayesian belief networks. He has a deep mislike of P values much preferring effect sizes and confidence intervals, or better still probabilities of direct relevance to decision-making. Gavin's work on meta-analysis spans applied agriculture, food, rural development, ecology and medicine reflecting a belief in generic methods for Evidence Based X (EBX).
