Cold and alone? Roost choice and season affect torpor patterns in lesser short‑tailed bats
Seasonal changes in weather and food availability differentially impact energy budgets of small mammals such as bats. While most thermal physiological research has focused on species that experience extreme seasonal ...
Thermoregulation by captive and free-ranging Egyptian rousette bats (Rousettus aegyptiacus) in South Africa
(American Society of Mammalogists, 2017)
Many bats, including some small-bodied tropical and subtropical Pteropodidae, use torpor to offset energetic constraints. We tested the hypothesis that medium-sized (110–160 g) cave-roosting Egyptian rousette bats (Rousettus ...
The Escape Buffer: Efficient Computation of Escape Time for Linear Fractals
(Canadian Human Computer Communications Society, 1995-05-17)
The study of linear fractals has gained a great deal from the study of quadratic fractals, despite important differences. Methods for classifying points in the complement of a fractal shape were originally developed for ...
Three-Way Analysis of Facial Similarity Judgments
The card sorting problem involves the similarity judgments of pairs of photos, taken from a set of photos, by a group of participants. Given the lack of an objective standard for judging similarity, different participants ...
Quantifying Relative Levels of Solar Radiation at Bat Roosts Using Pyranometers
(Wiley - The Wildlife Society, 2017)
Although the amount of solar radiation received at roost sites used by bats has been speculated to be a factor driving roost-site selection and roost switching behavior, few studies have scientifically quantified and ...
Winter climate affects torpor patterns and roost choice in New Zealand lesser short-tailed bats
(Wiley-Blackwell (Zoological Society of London), 2017)
Variation in winter conditions differentially impacts thermoregulation of endotherms, with some species using torpor as an energy-saving strategy during periods of negative energy balance. We evaluated how differences ...
Discernibility in the Analysis of Binary Card Sort Data
In an open card sorting study of 356 facial photographs, each of 25 participants created an unconstrained number of piles. We consider all 63,190 possible pairs of photos: if both photos are in the same pile for a participant, ...
Engaging Indigenous Youth in Science with the High-Altitude Balloon Experiment
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2019-02-20)
Our custom high-altitude balloon experiment kit with the complete set of instructions has been successfully used to engage high school and post-secondary students across Canada. This article describes how the high-altitude ...
Incorporation of High-Altitude Balloon Experiment in High School Science Classrooms
(Scientific Research Publishing, 2019-02-14)
We have been launching high-altitude balloons to engage students in science since 2013. Our custom balloon kit allows high school teachers and students to collect environmental data and capture videos. Through our ...
