Is it possible to change the bibliography style locally in a document from author-year to numbered citation.

I have used Apalike in the thesis that I am writing now, but there are two tables which contain a lot of references. Thus, it would be handy to have numbered citations in the table.

for instance:

% Preamble:
\documentclass[global, referee]{svjour}
\usepackage{amssymb, amsmath}
This is abstract

this is introduction
%begin environment
%here change the bibliography style to a numbered citation bibliography style for e.g. ieeetr%

% Table generated by Excel2LaTeX from sheet 'Sheet1'
  \caption{test table}
    {Compound} & {\% variance (R$^2$)} \\
    A & 7.1 \citep{Franek2, Eagle}\\            \rule{0cm}{0.50cm}
    B & 7.4 \citep{Franek2, Eagle, Taylor}\\                \rule{0cm}{0.50cm}
    C & 6.0 \citep{Franek2, Eagle, Taylor} \\           \rule{0cm}{0.50cm}
    D & 6.8 \citep{Franek2, Eagle, Taylor, Carvalhal}\\     \rule{0cm}{0.50cm}
    E & 5.2 \\

    To what would these numbered references point? Would there be a separate bibliography? Although footnotes in tables -- tablenotes, if you will -- are often discouraged (rightly or wrongly), it might be a reasonable compromise in this case. – jon Jan 16 '14 at 21:27
  • I do not want to create a separate bibliography for the table. If I have 20 references in table: footnotes will cover half of my page which is not acceptable. – abhishek Jan 18 '14 at 18:06
  • Then what purpose would a numbered system serve in what is otherwise an author-year system? Surely, either they are all author-year, or none are.... – jon Jan 18 '14 at 18:11
  • Convenience and readability of the table. Otherwise, for e.g. in a cell, I would see a value with 5 references. for e.g. 20- 25 % (Doe et al, Smith et al, Jane et al.) If I have a big table, you can imagine what would happen. – abhishek Jan 18 '14 at 18:20
  • I understand that. I mean: the numbered bibliography items have to be somewhere else --- where would that be? and how would it (not) relate to the regular bibliography? You are not providing much information about how everything should fit together. – jon Jan 18 '14 at 18:22
