Using multiple data sources to investigate foraging niche partitioning in sympatric obligate avian scavengers
As carrion feeders competing for a limited and ephemeral resource, avian scavengers are ideal model organisms to study mechanisms of niche partitioning. Previous work has focused on observations of species' interactions ...
Spillovers and Crowding Effects in a Mixed Biotech Industry: The Case of Canola
This paper develops empirical models to estimate both interfirm research spillovers and crowding effects in the canola crop research industry. The potential sources of spillover include basic research, human capital/knowledge ...
