Lakatos, Louis; Turcotte, Josée; Oddson, Bruce — 2019-06-27 FFMQ, LMS, SRS, STATA, Pearson correlations, Mediations, Sobel-Goodman procedure, Latent class model The study of mindfulness proceeds from a number of perspectives. Two of the best-known academic conceptualizations of mindfulness are those identified with Kabat-Zinn and Langer. These conceptions, meditative and socio-cognitive, have been built from different foundations and have been argued to be quite distinct. However, Hart, Ivtzan and Hart 1 suggested that self-regulation of attention is a mediator between the two. To put this hypothesis to a test, a convenience sample of participants (n = 208) were asked to complete the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ), Langer Mindfulness Scale (LMS), and the Self-Regulation Scale (SRS), a measure of the self-regulation of attention. These three dispositional measures were shown to be correlated. Self-regulation passes a statistical test for partial mediation of the relationship between the two measures of mindfulness. This suggests that reliance on the capacity to regulate attention in pursuit of a goal is shared by these two approaches to mindfulness. However, there is no clear conceptual basis for mediation in either particular direction. Further, the correlation between the LMS and FFMQ is highest for those with the highest SRS scores; we discuss the implications for conceptual distinctions within mindfulness.

Replication data for: Effects of simulated wastewater nutrient amendments on Sphagnum productivity and decomposition within a subarctic ladder fen
Lavallee, Amanda; Campbell, Daniel — 2017-10-23 Peatlands dominate the flat landscape of the Hudson Bay Lowland (HBL). Sphagnum mosses are the key peat-generating plants allowing for important ecosystem services such as carbon storage and water polishing. The HBL also has current and proposed industrial mining development projects, and its peatlands may become increasingly used to polish secondarily-treated wastewater from mining camps. We examined biological changes in the plant community associated with the addition of simulated secondarily-treated wastewater to a subarctic ladder fen, a wetland type commonly found throughout the HBL. We determined how the nutrient additions affected the productivity, decomposition, and nutrient ratios within the ponds and raised peatland ridge components of the ladder fen. Our results show between a four to twelvefold increase in productivity rates of the low-lying Sphagnum rubellum species, and a twofold increase in productivity for the higher hummock or ridge-dominating species Sphagnum fuscum in locations closest to the point source of nutrient effluent. Regions of the experimental ribbed fen greater than 50 m away from the point source showed little difference in productivity rates or nutrient content than the reference fen levels. No significant changes to the rate of decomposition of Sphagnum were observed with relation to distance away from point source nutrients as the experimental fen decomposition rates were comparable to the reference fen rates. Sphagnum productivity per year remained greater than mass lost to decomposition. Therefore, this study suggests that, in the short-term, subarctic peatlands exposed to nutrient levels comparable to that present in treated domestic wastewater will increase their capacity to generate Sphagnum-peat and store carbon. This experimental research aids in understanding to what degree plants mediate shifts in ecosystem dynamics within subarctic ladder fens. Policy makers, community planners, and industries may consult these results for mining development projects within the HBL and elsewhere in subarctic and boreal biomes.

Replication Data for: Misalignment error in cancellous bone apparent elastic modulus depends on bone volume fraction and degree of anisotropy
Bennison, Matthew; Pilkey, Keith; Lievers, Brent — 2020-07-09 Five micro-CT images of bovine cancellous bone from different skeletal sites (humeral head, L6 vertebra, lateral femoral condyle, greater trochanter, sacral wing). Images are 856x856x856 voxels (~12.8x12.8x12.8mm) at an isotropic 15 µm voxel resolution. There are also CSV files containing the predicted apparent moduli, E, for the conventional and eroded/dilated FEM models presented in the associated paper. The VFF files are composed of a text header followed by 16-bit unsigned, big endian, binary data. For these files, the headers are 134 bytes long. This header can be skipped when importing into software such as ImageJ.

Replication data for: Developing protocols for the collection and valuation of wild native seed from the Hudson Bay Lowland
Rantala-Sykes, Brittany; Campbell, Daniel — 2017-10-04 Native species are being more commonly used and often even mandated in restoration projects. However, commercial seed sources are often unavailable or not of a suitable provenance. Collecting seed from wild sources is an alternative, but it can be challenging. The objectives of this study were to: 1) identify key attributes that influence the value of seed and to evaluate and quantify these differences for 57 native species with potential for restoration in subarctic Ontario; 2) determine if fertilizers could increase the seed yield of wild species with a low seed output; 3) determine and compile simple and effective protocols for the collection, processing, storage, and germination of 60 wild species native to northeastern Ontario. Field studies were conducted at De Beers’ Victor diamond mine, located in the Hudson Bay Lowland in north-central Canada from 2014 to 2016. To complete the first objective, I evaluated the attributes that affect the time and cost of using wild seeds from upland native plants. Taking into account the regional abundance of species, collection obstacles, requirements for identification, ease of processing and storing seeds, and propagation effort, I ranked the results for each species within each attribute. Each category provided a relative value reflective of the effort required to collect, process, store, and propagate seed of a given species. I demonstrate how these relative values could be used to prioritize species in revegetation planning. These relative seed values can also be used to determine seed prices for a variety of projects and locations. For my second objective, I fertilized wild populations of American vetch (Vicia americana) and silverweed (Potentilla anserina). These herbaceous upland species may be useful in reclamation, but had low seed yields in 2014. Fertilization had no effect on seed yield and neither species set seed, regardless of treatment, except for a single American vetch plot. I discuss various environmental factors that may have had an influence on the poor seed yields. Fertilizing wild populations may not be an effective approach to increase seed yield for these species in a subarctic environment, although testing a variety of fertilizer rates and environments could guide future studies. For the final objective, I field-tested seed collection and seed processing protocols for native species desired for revegetation, and I compiled information from the literature on their storage and propagation requirements. I produced both a general guide and profiles for 60 species. The guide is written in lay language, with many photographs and provides an overview of the required knowledge for harvesting seed from wild plants. This guide will be useful to people who wish to begin collecting seed for any reason, including restoration projects, nursery establishment and even gardening. The demand for native and local seed is growing. With increased mining development in remote areas, the demand for local native seed for restoration will continue to increase. This research will contribute to the knowledge of collecting wild seed from native species and improve the success of these collection programs. This work could provide a base for small business development in remote communities. This data is associated with the first chapter in the related thesis. Refer to thesis for detailed methods.
