Unlike secondary world fantasy, such as that of J.R.R. Tolkien, what I call syncretic fantasy is typically set in a world that overlaps significantly with the contemporary "real" or cognitive majoritarian world in which we (i.e. most North Americans) profess to live our lives. In terms of popular...
Genetic, genomic and molecular studies of signaling pathways controlling ecdysone biosynthesis in Drosophila melanogasterDownload
In insects, periodic pulses of the molting hormone ecdysone control all major developmental transitions such as the molts and metamorphosis. Ecdysone, a steroid hormone, is produced in the prothoracic gland during larval and pupal development of Drosophila. While we have a relatively good...
Occupancy, Abundance, and Summer Ecology of the Western Tiger Salamander (Ambystoma mavortium Baird) in the Beaver Hills, AlbertaDownload
The western tiger salamander (Ambystoma mavortium Baird) is a ‘species of special concern’ in the Canadian prairie provinces. Potential declines caused by habitat loss and fragmentation, emergent diseases, and fish stocking are reasons cited for this species conservation status. However, little...
This research draws together textile fabric and garment testing used in the prediction of human comfort in chemical protective clothing (CPC) with human wear trials. Four interrelated studies were performed to characterize and predict the thermo-physiological strain and physical burden in...
Parental Experiences of a Parent-assisted Social Skills Intervention for Adolescents with Autism Spectrum DisorderDownload
The Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS) is a parent-assisted social skills program for teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In the PEERS program, the parents play a vital role in supporting and coaching their teen’s skill development. The purpose of this...
The Effect of Instructions on Landmark, Route, and Directional Memory for Active vs. Passive Learners of a Virtual Reality EnvironmentDownload
In two experiments, subjects either freely walked around a virtual building or watched a recording made made by a matched (free walk) subject. Subjects then performed several tasks: judgment of relative direction, scene recognition and navigation back to the start. The aim was to evaluate the the...
Tectonomagmatic Controls on the Çöpler Epithermal Au and Cevizlidere Porphyry Cu-Au-Mo Deposits (Central Eatern Turkey) and the Genesis of the Porphyry-Epithermal Mineralization at the Çöpler Epithermal Au DepositDownload
The Munzur Mountains in central eastern Turkey are an emerging belt of intrusion-related precious and base metal deposits. Two recent discoveries, the Çöpler epithermal Au and Cevizlidere porphyry Cu-Mo-Au deposits, lie 50 km apart and are located along the northern and southern margins of the...
The aggregation of DNA molecules induced by cationic polymers is of importance to applications in gene delivery. In this work, we performed a series of umbrella sampling molecular dynamics simulations to calculate the potential of mean force (PMF) between two DNA molecules in the presence of...
The avian egg is an excellent source of nutrients, and consists of components with beneficial properties but there is a limited knowledge on the effect of various cooking methods and gastrointestinal digestion on antioxidant activity of eggs. The present study was focused on the effect of cooking...
