2011 journal article

Quantifying secondary pest outbreaks in cotton and their monetary cost with causal-inference statistics

ECOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS, 21(7), 2770–2780.

author keywords: causal inference; cotton; ecosystem services; indirect effects; integrated pest management; Lygus spp.; potential outcomes; San Joaquin Valley, California, USA; secondary pest outbreak
MeSH headings : Agriculture / economics; Animals; Environmental Monitoring; Gossypium / parasitology; Insect Control / economics; Insecta / drug effects; Insecta / physiology; Insecticides / pharmacology; Models, Biological; Models, Statistical; Population Growth
TL;DR: To the extent that secondary pest outbreaks may be driven by eliminating pests' natural enemies, these figures place a lower bound on the monetary value of ecosystem services provided by native communities of arthropod predators and parasitoids in this agricultural system.

BIOMETRICS, 67(4), 1271–1284.

By: A. Maity n & X. Lin*

Contributors: A. Maity n & X. Lin*

author keywords: Garrote; Gene-gene interaction; Kernel machine; Mixed models; Restricted maximum likelihood; Score test; Semiparametric regression
MeSH headings : Algorithms; Artificial Intelligence; Biomarkers, Tumor / genetics; Genetic Predisposition to Disease / epidemiology; Genetic Predisposition to Disease / genetics; Humans; Male; Michigan / epidemiology; Prostatic Neoplasms / epidemiology; Prostatic Neoplasms / genetics; Protein Interaction Mapping / methods
TL;DR: A key feature of the proposed test is that it is flexible and developed for both parametric and nonparametric models within a unified framework, and is more powerful than the standard test by accounting for the correlation among genes and hence often uses a much smaller degrees of freedom.
