    rolling on with their data mining, much beloved by confirmation-seeking anti-nukes.

    The self-quoting nature of their production is evident from the reference list. Almost all papers involve Tim or Anders.

    Now that we've established that the linked paper is not a study, is the "number of studies" on this topic in the Journal of Heredity actually greater than zero?

    This is not a sig-line.

      in this issue, I would say only the one on rice is a study rather than a summary of studies or work being done; although the butterfly discussion goes into some depth, it is a summary of their actual study, discussing both the study and addressing responses to it. While the bird paper was the weakest of the three in terms of data presented, the findings seemed more applicable to our overriding concern - ourselves - and so I chose to focus on it.

      But you can read them yourself here, for free. Although since you have chosen to attack the authors rather than their results or methods, I doubt you will be interested.
