The Neolithic was marked by a transition from small and relatively egalitarian groups, to much larger groups with increased stratification. But the dynamics of this remain poo...

A standard data model representation for taxonomic information.

Journal Article
Kennedy, J., Hyam, R., Kukla, R., & Paterson, T. (2006)
A standard data model representation for taxonomic information. OMICS, 10, 220-230. doi:10.1089/omi.2006.10.220
The names used by biologists to label the observations they make are imprecise. This is an issue as workers increasingly seek to exploit data gathered from multiple, unrelated...

The Prometheus Description Model: an examination of the taxonomic description-building process and its representation

Journal Article
Pullan, M. R., Armstrong, K. E., Paterson, T., Cannon, A., Kennedy, J. B., Watson, M. F., …Raguenaud, C. (2005)
The Prometheus Description Model: an examination of the taxonomic description-building process and its representation. Taxon, 54(3), 751 - 765. https://doi.org/10.2307/25065431
A model for representing taxonomic descriptive data is presented. The model has been developed in response to the growing requirement for the global exchange of descriptive da...

Journal Article
Craig, P., Kennedy, J., & Cumming, A. (2005)
Time-series Explorer: An Animated Information Visualisation for Microarray Time-course Data. BMC bioinformatics, 6, P8. doi:10.1186/1471-2105-6-S3-P8

Extending taxonomic visualisation to incorporate synonymy and structural markers.

Journal Article
Graham, M., & Kennedy, J. (2005)
Extending taxonomic visualisation to incorporate synonymy and structural markers. Information Visualization, 4, 206 - 223. doi:10.1057/palgrave.ivs.9500096
The visualisation of taxonomic hierarchies has evolved from indented lists of names to techniques that can display thousands of nodes and onto hundreds of thousands of nodes o...

Implementation of the Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a comparison of database models and query languages and an introduction to the Prometheus Object-Oriented Model.

Journal Article
Raguenaud, C., Pullan, M. R., Watson, M. F., Kennedy, J., Newman, M. F., & Barclay, P. J. (2002)
Implementation of the Prometheus Taxonomic Model: a comparison of database models and query languages and an introduction to the Prometheus Object-Oriented Model. Taxon, 51(1), 131-142. https://doi.org/10.2307/1554970
Types of databases commonly used for handling taxonomic data are compared. It is shown that none of the existing types of databases fully support the requirements of taxonomic...
