Current rehabilitation practice for the evaluation and treatment of children with arthrogryposis: an international survey

Sarah Cachecho, Alicja Fąfara, Francis Lacombe, André Bussières & Noemi Dahan-Oliel
To describe the current practices in rehabilitation for the evaluation and treatment of children with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC). Rehabilitation practitioners worldwide with at least 2 years of experience with AMC were invited to complete an electronic survey on the evaluations and treatments used with children with AMC within five areas: muscle and joint function, self-care, mobility, pain, participation and psychosocial wellbeing. Sixty five participants from nine countries completed the survey. Participants completed the sections...

Intraspecific competition and temperature drive habitat-based resource polymorphism in brook charr

Pierre Magnan
Intra- and interspecific competition, two density-dependent processes, are the two main driving forces suggested to promote habitat-based resource polymorphism, but very few studies have provided empirical support for this hypothesis. Furthermore, external drivers like temperature, an important environmental constraint in ectotherms, are often omitted when studying density-dependent habitat selection. Specifically, ambient temperature may have important effects on habitat-based resource polymorphism in ectotherms. Using mixed-effects modelling and isodar analyses, we quantified the effects of water temperature...

“Least-cost theory” posits that C3 plants should balance rates of photosynthetic water loss and carboxylation in relation to the relative acquisition and maintenance costs of resources required for these activities. Here we investigated the dependency of photosynthetic traits on climate and soil properties using a new Australia-wide trait dataset spanning 528 species from 67 sites. We tested the hypotheses that plants on relatively cold or dry sites, or on relatively more fertile sites, would typically...

Life history data on married women of the historical population of île aux Coudres

Walid Mawass, Emmanuel Milot & Francine M. Mayr
Evidence from natural populations shows that changes in environmental conditions can cause rapid modifications in the evolutionary potential of phenotypes, partly through genotype-by-environment interactions (G×E). Therefore, the overall rate of microevolution should depend on fluctuations in environmental conditions, even when directional selection is sustained over several generations. We tested this hypothesis in a preindustrial human population that experienced a microevolutionary change in age at first reproduction (AFR) of mothers, using the annual infant mortality rate...

UTAUT2-based questionnaire: cross-cultural adaptation to Canadian French

Isabelle Pagé, Marianne Roos, Olivier Collin, Sean Dean Lynch, Marie-Eve Lamontagne, Hugo Massé-Alarie & Andréanne K. Blanchette
The extended version of the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT2) aims to better understand acceptance of technology. The objective of this study was to translate the English UTAUT2-based questionnaire to Canadian French. The translation included five steps: (1) Forward translation, (2) Synthesis of the translated versions, (3) Backward translation, (4) Synthesis by a multidisciplinary committee and proposal of the Pre-final Canadian French version, and (5) Cognitive debriefing. Cognitive debriefing included the...
