Second, Definition #1 works for me. Though I find that while, "the word means
what you want it to mean" (Alice, cited by L. Carroll), what you want it to
mean may vary with the your expectations at the moment. I have just gone
through the excercise of defining IPM with my class, and found that definitions
of the concept reflect the (often valid) biases of the individual.
Next - my candidates for significant papers - these reflect my current focus on
IPM definitions and evaluation.
