Title: Testing Curvature in Functional Single Index Models: Inference for Reaction Norms in Ecology
Author(s): Giles J Hooker* and Zi Ye
Companies: Cornell University and Cornell University
Keywords: single index model ; functional regression ; curvature ; inference

In ecological studies, a species response, in terms of either growth or survival, to a changing environment is described as a "reaction norm". The curvature of the reaction norm dictates whether environmental variability improves or suppresses the species.

Here we present theory and methods to perform statistical inference concerning the effect of variable weather history via tests of curvature for a functional single index model.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
