    Cottonwoods are poplar trees that are adapted to riparian zones that are naturally occasionally flooded. Like all Salicaceae, cottonwoods are dioecious and prior studies have indicated that males are more drought-tolerant ...
  • Black, Jodie Lynn Gallais; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Education, 2009Education, 2009)
    Research indicates that students who reside on campus are more likely than commuter students to persist in their studies until graduation. The purpose of this study is to explore factors that may influence retention for ...
  • Klassen, Mark E.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2005)
    I tested the twin-threshold model, a risk-sensitive foraging model incorporating both a starvation threshold and a higher reproductive threshold. The model predicts risk-adverse foraging when an animal's energy state is ...
  • Mishra, Sandeep; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2007Faculty of Arts and ScienceDepartment of Psychology, 2007)
    Crime rates dropped unexpectedly and dramatically in the 1990s. Chapter One describes this drop, and evaluates previous explanations for the decline. A theoretical and empirical link between crime and risk taking at the ...
