  • Raes et al, 2011, Molecular Systems Biology
    • cite in out range mapping paper
    • richness peaks not in tropics
    • removal of outliers?
    • data set at different scale, just the GOS data set
    • may indicate that we need to hurry with our paper
  • Bias analyses
    • Bias in richness estimates appears to be a substantial problem
    • No easy fix
    • Bootstrapping looks promising
    • Downplay richness map, emphasize other measures of richness if bias cannot be corrected
    • Josh will prepare a draft with richness downplayed in the next 24 hours, and circulate to the group.
