Diet composition and prey selectivity of gray wolves (Canis lupus) in Prince Albert National Park, SaskatchewanDownload
Plains bison (Bison bison bison) were nearly driven to extinction in the late 19th century due to overhunting and habitat loss, and populations occurring within their historic range and co-existing with natural predators are exceedingly rare. Studies examining gray wolf (Canis lupus) predation on...
How Women Varsity Athletes High in Self-Compassion Experience Unexpected Stressors Surrounding CompetitionDownload
Athletes appraise unexpected stressors as more threatening than expected stressors (Dugdale et al., 2002) and women varsity athletes have reported experiencing a high proportion of unexpected competition-related stressors (Holt et al., 2007). Self-compassion appears to promote adaptive appraisals...
Integration Of Artificial Neural Network And Finite Element Method For Prediction Of Elastic-Plastic Deformation Behaviour Near Crack TipsDownload
It has been widely accepted that stress and strain fields near the crack tip govern crack propagation behavior. In most cases, an elasto-plastic analysis is required to determine local stress and strain fields around the crack tip due to the high stress concentration. However, complexities of...
Personal and Environmental Factors that Contribute to Experiences of Stress in Physical Education for Children at Risk for Developmental Coordination DisorderDownload
Psychological stress is as an experience that arises from a mismatch between a person’s perception of a situation and his or her resources to cope with environmental demands (Aldwin, 2007). Developmental coordination disorder (DCD) is more than just a motor problem and is thought to cause many...

Quantitative states of the in-situ stress of the Canadian Duvernay Formation and deterministic analysis on the regional fault stabilityDownload
Maps of the in-situ stress directions and magnitudes at the depth of the Duvernay Formation within the Alberta Energy Regulator’s (AER) Kaybob assessment area (centered on the town of Fox Creek), East Shale basin (centered on the city of Red Deer) and Willesden Green oil field are constructed...
Sport involvement can be both a stressor and protective factor for athletes’ well-being (Arnold & Fletcher, 2012; Sarkar & Fletcher, 2014; Secades et al., 2016). With potentially fewer performance stressors, recreational athletes might be best positioned to experience the positive aspects of...
These supplementary materials present detailed results of statistical modelling described in the following book chapter: Arnhold, A., Elfner, E., & Compton, R. (to appear). Inuktitut and the concept of word-level prominence. In K. Bogomolets & H. van der Hulst (Eds.), Word prominence in languages...
In the profession of teaching, there are unique challenges due to the high stress, emotional exhaustion, and difficulty of work-life balance. Therefore, maintaining balanced wellness is a struggle many teachers face; imbalances can result in increased stress levels, and in many cases burnout. The...
