Gap Filling in the Plant Kingdom---Trait Prediction Using Hierarchical Probabilistic Matrix Factorization [article]

Hanhuai Shan, Jens Kattge (Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry), Peter Reich , Arindam Banerjee, Franziska Schrodt (University of Minnesota), Markus Reichstein
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We propose hierarchical probabilistic matrix factorization (HPMF), which effectively uses hierarchical phylogenetic information for trait prediction.  ...  Meanwhile, the trait data is characterized by the hierarchical phylogenetic structure of the plant kingdom.  ...  Acknowledgments The research was supported by NSF grants IIS-0812183, IIS-0916750, IIS-1029711, IIS-1017647, and NSF CAREER award IIS-0953274.  ...

Approx. 70% of the most frequent species are represented by at least one trait in the global trait database TRY and gap-filled data will become available for the most common traits.  ...  However, the use of large database about host-parasite relationship associated with "macroscopic" geographical range can be an elegant solution to throw foundations to fill this gap.  ...  We are using amphibians to test these predictions (A or B) using next generation sequencing methods (RAD-seq) and species distribution models.  ...
