Uncertainties surrounding tree carbon allocation to growth are a major limitation to projections of forest carbon sequestration and response to climate change. The prevalence and extent to which carbon assimilation (source) or cambial activity (sink) mediate wood production are fundamentally important and remain elusive. We quantified source-sink relations across biomes by combining eddy-covariance gross primary production with extensive on-site and regional tree ring observations. We found widespread temporal decoupling between carbon assimilation and tree growth,...
Objective: The objective of this scoping review is to identify and understand the extent and type of literature available regarding research mentorship in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). Introduction: This scoping review is vital as it is important to identify research mentorship gaps in public health systems and build research capacity in LMICs. Additionally, we aim to create a pipeline of skilled researchers that can contribute to discussions of global public health. Specifically, we believe...
Range shifts in butternut, a rare, endangered tree, in response to past climate and modern conditionsEmily Schumacher, Alissa Brown, Martin Williams, Jeanne Romero-Severson, Tannis Beardmore & Sean Hoban
Aim: Range shifts are a key process that determine species distributions and genetic patterns. A previous investigation reported that Juglans cinerea (butternut) has lower genetic diversity at higher latitudes, hypothesized to be the result of range shifts following the last glacial period. However, genetic patterns can also be impacted by modern ecogeographic conditions. Therefore, we re-investigate genetic patterns of butternut with additional northern population sampling, hindcasted species distribution models, and fossil pollen records to clarify...

In imperial China, intellectuals devoted years of their lives to passing rigorous examinations in order to obtain a civil service position in the state bureaucracy. This traditional employment of the literati class conferred social power and moral legitimacy, but changing social and political circumstances in the Ming (1368–1644) and Qing (1644–1911) periods forced many to seek alternative careers. Politically engaged but excluded from their traditional bureaucratic roles, creative writers authored critiques of state power in...

This study seeks to examine prevalence and correlates of intolerance among leftists.
Spatial variation in plant chemical defence towards herbivores can help us understand variation in herbivore top-down control of shrubs in the Arctic and possibly also shrub responses to global warming. Less defended, non-resinous shrubs could be more influenced by herbivores than more defended, resinous shrubs. However, sparse field measurements limit our current understanding of how much of the circum-Arctic variation in defence compounds is explained by taxa or defence functional groups (resinous/non-resinous). We measured circum-Arctic...
Research project exploring how workers think politics affect organizational decision-making
The Comprehensive Assessment of Traits Relevant to Personality Disorders – Static Form (CAT-PD-SF, Simms et al., 2011) is a pathological personality scale initially constructed to measure a wide array of facet-level traits (e.g., Anhedonia or Impulsivity). While facet scales provide greater specificity about personality constructs, there are problems associated with this level of analysis. Multiple facet scales can require significant time to complete, increasing patient burden in clinical settings or participant fatigue in research settings....
