Included here are drafts of manuscripts that were rejected. Many have been revised and published in a different format. For all papers published from these datasets, see Vitae.
The original drafts were rejected primarily because it was thought by reviewers the methods of analyses were "weak", "unsophisticated" in terms of modern models available, included too much speculative material, or the manuscripts were too long, with too much detail, or a combination of all.
We are now in the process of breaking the data sets into smaller papers (including presentation of data for each species or habitat separately) and employing more "sophisticated" analyses. To be frank, the papers employing "modern" analytical tools for the most part show the same results/conclusions, frequently taking much more space to present the same results. Further, some of the results employing newer analytical models are obviously flawed, yielding unrealistic results.
Whatever the situation, these drafts are presented so that you may be able to see what might be happening within and among the populations. From these perhaps you will be able to identify and better design analytical procedures to test various hypotheses.
