Competitive traits and the stability of wheat cultivars in differing natural weed environments on the northern Canadian prairiesDownload
Nine spring wheat cultivars, selected on the basis of height, tillering capacity and maturity, were grown in differing levels of natural weed presence at three locations in Edmonton and New Norway, Alberta between 2003 and 2004. The objectives of the study were to (1) identify competitive traits...
Exploring the Dynamics of Directed Studies Courses: Student, Instructor, and Administrator PerspectivesDownload
North American universities are encouraged to increase opportunities for undergraduate research experiences (UREs). To this end, many universities offer directed studies courses (DSCs) which are 1-2 semester long courses involving one-on-one instruction, with a focus on student-led independent...
The effects of cue placement on the relative dominance of boundaries and landmark arrays in goal localizationDownload
Two types of visual features are identified as reference points used by individuals to encode locations: surface-based boundaries and discrete-object-based landmarks. Previous research show that learning locations relative to a boundary can overshadow learning relative to a landmark, but not vice...
Objectives. To describe the levels of obesity, adiposity measures, physical activity and fitness in Cree children aged 9-12 years. Study Design. Cross-sectional survey. Methods. The study took place in northern Quebec, Canada. Height, body mass, waist circum- ference and five skinfold thicknesses...
Potential regulatory role of microRNAs in the development of bovine gastrointestinal tract during early lifeDownload
This study aimed to investigate the potential regulatory role of miRNAs in the development of gastrointestinal tract (GIT) during the early life of dairy calves. Rumen and small intestinal (mid-jejunum and ileum) tissue samples were collected from newborn (30 min after birth; n = 3), 7-day-old...
Effect of water stress and plant defense stimulation on monoterpene emission from a historical and a new pine host of the mountain pine beetleDownload
The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae, MPB) has killed millions of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) trees in Western Canada and recent range expansion has resulted in attack of jack pine (Pinus banksiana) in Alberta. Establishment of MPB in the Boreal forest will require use of jack...
A mechanistic model of intermittent gastric emptying and glucose-insulin dynamics following a meal containing milk componentsDownload
To support decision-making around diet selection choices to manage glycemia following a meal, a novel mechanistic model of intermittent gastric emptying and plasma glucose-insulin dynamics was developed. Model development was guided by postprandial timecourses of plasma glucose, insulin and the...
Over the past decade, researchers have shown an increased interest in Set-Based Design motivated by the potential benefits of shortening product development time while creating robust products. Despite the growing number of publications around the topic, most of them have focused on practical...
Background: Pathogenesis-related proteins belonging to group 10 (PR10) are elevated in response to biotic and abiotic stresses in plants. Previously, we have shown a drastic salinityinduced increase in the levels of ABR17, a member of the PR10 family, in pea. Furthermore, we have also...
