The relative importance of plant facilitation and competition during primary succession depends on the development of ecosystem nutrient pools, yet the interaction of these processes remains poorly understood. To explore how these mechanisms interact to drive successional dynamics, we devised a...
Species invasions are increasing worldwide and are impacting populations, communities, and ecosystems. Non-native species that are ecosystem engineers, such as earthworms, may be particularly likely to have large impacts due to their ability to modify both biological and physical characteristics...
We examined the relationship between aspen cover and understory production across two topographic positions and two management systems within the Aspen Parkland of eastern Alberta. Understory biomass typically declined with increasing overstory, with greater yield losses on north-facing forests...
This toolkit is based on a belief in the power of human connection and the possibilities of using DISCLOSURE to strengthen that connection. Through dialogue and action undertaken in a spirit of openness and respect, we increase understanding and expand our thinking. We embrace listening, along...
Inquiring into the Roles and Responsibilities of Facilitating Loose Parts Play: A Practitioner's PerspectiveDownload
Play, and more specifically unstructured outdoor play, is well-documented as being beneficial, and arguably essential to healthy cognitive, emotional, social and physical development. However, factors such as risk, liability and self-regulation often complicate and deter unstructured outdoor play...
We investigated whether plant interaction intensity in a subarctic-alpine meadow is important for determining community structure and species abundance. Using two common species as phytometers, we measured interaction intensity using a neighbor removal approach. Eight biotic and abiotic variables...
Skills and attributes required by clinical nurse specialists to promote evidence-based practice.Download
Purpose/Objectives: The purposes of this article were to describe the challenges that clinical nurse specialists (CNS) face in their role and to examine how CNSs describe the skills and attributes that are needed to promote the use of evidence-based practice (EBP) in their workplaces. This...
