Interactive ambient visualizations for soft advice

Emerson Murphy-Hill, Titus Barik, Andrew P. Black
2013 Information Visualization  
In this paper, we describe an interactive ambient visualization to help users identify, understand and interpret soft advice.  ...  Some software packages offer the user soft advice: recommendations that are intended to help the user create high quality artifacts, but which may turn out to be bad advice.  ...  These properties may hold for other tools used in software development and for soft advice systems in other domains.  ...

Behavioral and ecological correlates of foureye butterflyfish, Chaetodon capistratus, (Perciformes: Chaetodontidae) infected with Anilocra chaetodontis (Isopoda: Cymothoidae)

Dwayne W Meadows, Christina M Meadows
2003 Revista de Biología Tropical  
Infected fish had higher rates of interaction with conspecifics and spent more time in low flow environments (which might improve transmission of juvenile parasites to new hosts).  ...  These results suggest that foureye butterfly fish behavior is altered by the isopod parasite in order for the isopods to more easily gain mates or transmit offspring to new hosts.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Thanks to Tiffiny Merrill for field assistance, and to L. B. and E. H. Williams for advice and inspiration on working with Anilocra.  ...

Brownification increases winter mortality in fish

Per Hedström, David Bystedt, Jan Karlsson, Folmer Bokma, Pär Byström
2016 Oecologia  
Abstract In northern climates, winter is a bottleneck for many organisms.  ...  As hypothesized, mortality was higher under humic (76%) as compared to ambient conditions (64%).  ...  Similarly, as humic substances negatively affect light conditions, this should impair vision for visual predators, although experimental evidence for negative effects on fish foraging rates by brownification  ...
