Estimate Waterfowl Nests on Monte Vista National Wildlife. USING DISTANCE SAMPLING TO ESTIMATE WATER FOWL NESTS ON MONTE VISTA NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE, COLORADO, USA Principal Investigator Nicole J. Traub, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Colorado at Boulder, 275 UCB, A Research Proposal Project Justification Measuring nest success is extremely important in order to determine the well-being of avian populations. Biologists have been attempting to infer the status of avian species by estimating rates of births and deaths to determine population growth and stability (Johnson, 1979; Newson et al., 2008). One measure of avian birth rate that is easy to gauge is the percentage of nests that hatch, which is used as an indirect measure of reproduction (Johnson, 1979). Nest success rates can also be used to hypothesis causes for declines in avian populations, i.e. habitat degradation, predation, overhunting, disease, environmental contaminants, etc. (Beauchamp et al., 1996). Nest success is defined as a nest in “which at least one egg hatched” and the “presence of detached shell membranes is the best evidence that eggs hatched” (Klett et al., 1986). Nest failure usually results from predation but they may have been abandoned if the hens are disturbed during the early stages of egg laying (Klett et al., 1986). Transect sampling is widely used by wildlife managers and researchers to estimate population sizes of inanimate and animate objects (Newson et al., 2008). Transect studies designed to estimate inanimate object population size, such as waterfowl nests, usually proceed as follows: the area to be sampled is defined; random (or systematic) transect lines are placed throughout the area; transects are searched to record the detection of the study object (Anderson and Pospahala, 1970). Bias is unavoidable in population size (density) estimates; therefore, it is important to recognize the source(s) of bias and adjust for them. An important source of bias lies in the transect sampling methods themselves. If some objects are not detected, then the expanded population estimate will be lower than the true population size unless adjustments are made (Burnham et al., 1980; Buckland et al., 2001). This source of bias is very important when detecting objects that are small, secretive, or well concealed; however, when detecting large or inanimate objects, this source of bias may be of little importance (Anderson and Pospahala, 1970). The basic output from line transect sampling is the encounter rate, which is the number of detections per distance walked. This method can be used to estimate relative density but it does not account for detectability which can vary depending on the study object and habitat (Marshall et al., 2008). In order to compensate for incomplete counts and problems with detectability, one can measure the distance from the transect to each observation (distance sampling) (Burnham and Anderson, 1984). The sample population is then the area sampled rather than the objects of interest. For example, the population sampled is a population of line transects in a given area, each line transect is a sample unit, and the object of interest (waterfowl nests) is the variate associated with each transect (Anderson and Posahala, 1970; Marshall et al., 2008). Four assumptions must be met in order to make valid inferences about population densities using distance sampling (in order of importance): (1) all objects that fall on the transect line are detected with certainty; (2) objects do not move either away from or towards the observer prior to detection; (3) perpendicular distance data are measure accurately; and (4) all detections are independent of each other (Burnham and Anderson, 1984; Buckland et al., 2001). These assumptions can be violated in many ways including, but not limited to, inexperienced or untrained observers, lack of interest in the observer, fatigue, speed of travel down the transect, transect width, habitat type, time of day, season, sun angle, inclement weather, object size, shape, coloration, and habits (Burnham and Anderson, 1984; Buckland et al., 2001; Marshall et al., 2008). Both strip transects and line transects can be useful measures of population density. However, the key difference between them is that density can be estimated using line transects based on distance without some of the bias innate to strip transects. Line transects require only the perpendicular distance to the object. In contrast, strip transect density estimates are usually low because not all objects in the strip are detected (Burnham et al., 1980; Burnham and Anderson, 1984; Buckland et al., 2001). A previous study completed on the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge (Anderson and Posahala, 1970) estimated waterfowl nest density using strip transects with a narrow width (8.25 ft. each side). This method is impractical and inefficient for sampling large areas since an insufficient number of objects may be detected after covering great distances (Anderson and Posahala, 1970). In contrast, this project proposes to utilize distance sampling with systematically placed line transects to obtain a full waterfowl nest census in order to determine nest distribution, nest success, and nest density. Objectives The purpose of this study is to test the possibility of employing a distance-based sampling protocol utilizing line transects to estimate waterfowl nest density. Specifically, the objectives are to: 1. Evaluate and expand upon previous density estimates of waterfowl nests in the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge. 2. Determine if line transect sampling is more efficient than strip transect sampling for calculating waterfowl nest density. 3. Implement a distance-based line transect approach to calculating: a. Number of successful nests b. Number of depredated nests c. Total number of nests Methods and Study Design The general survey design will follow Anderson and Pospahala (1970). Thus, the survey design will involve at least 20 transects that will be oriented north to south across the Refuge and spaced 150 feet apart. Total transect length will depend on the desired coefficient of variation (described below). Transects will be systematically overlaid a map of the Refuge prior to the start of the project to avoid bias in the way of vegetation or land use gradients (Figure 1). A transect will be randomly selected and a subsequent transect 150 feet away will be walked. This method will be followed in a sequential manner until all transects have been walked (Anderson and Pospahala, 1970; Buckland et al., 2001). Figure 1: Potential configuration of line transects throughout the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge The Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge is home to several species of migratory waterfowl such as ducks and geese that rely on the refuge for breeding. Some species arrive on the refuge earlier than others. To mitigate the possibility of not detecting nests due to waterfowl arrival, this project will collect data twice a year, once during mid-May and once between mid-July to mid- August (Monte Vista, 2017). Sampling effort, and consequently cost, depends on the acceptable amount of uncertainty (randomness) in the density estimates. The coefficient of variation (CV) measures the uncertainty of the density estimate. Meaning that it measures how much the density estimate would change if the data were collected again (Burnham et al., 1980; Buckland et al., 2001; Schnupp, 2017a). The greater the variation in the estimate, the farther the estimate is from the true value. To control for fluctuations in variation, this project will utilize a systematic survey design with many transects (large sample size) and each transect will aim to have similar encounter rates (Figure 1). For ease of navigation and repeatability, pre-established transects will be uploaded through Mapwel 2016 to Garmin Etrex GPS units (Garmin International Incorporated, Olathe, Kansas). For each nest detected, the perpendicular distance from the center of the nest to the transect line, nest state (depredated or successful), and waterfowl type (duck or non-duck) will be recorded. Program DISTANCE 7.0 (Buckland et al., 2001) will be used to calculate overall nest density, density of successful nests, and density of depredated nests for both waterfowl types. If strong habitat differences are encountered during the survey, stratification will be used in post- processing of the data to reduce variation and improve the precision of density estimates. Data will be pooled from all transects to increase model robustness. Data pooling helps even out minor fluctuations in object density between transects and lead to more precise density estimations (Fewster et al., 2005). Various detection functions will be evaluated in DISTANCE, including uniform, half-normal, hazard rate, and negative exponential with simple polynomial, hermite polynomial, or cosine adjustments. A detection function will be selected from the competing models using Akaike’s Information Criterion (AIC) values and goodness of fit using Chi-square analysis (Buckland et al., 2001). Expected Results and Benefits Given that nest success is viewed as empirical evidence for reproduction success and population status, it is imperative that estimates of density be as accurate as possible. The proposed research will (1) analyze the effectiveness of line transect distance sampling versus strip transect sampling and (2) provide an accurate, efficient, and cost-effective method to determine waterfowl nest success and distribution on the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge, Colorado, USA. Upon confirmation of funding, research protocols will be refined in consultation with Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge personnel and Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Annual progress reports will be submitted and a final report detailing findings and recommendations will be submitted within 1 year of contract completion. Research results will be presented at professional scientific meetings and published in peer-reviewed scientific journals where Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge will be acknowledged as a major funding contributor. Additionally, if desired, one or more Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge employees will be listed as a coauthor in all presentations and publications. Project deliverables will include: Ph.D. dissertation and corresponding scientific publications Scientific presentations at state, regional, and international conferences (undergraduate and graduate) Spreadsheets for calculation of density estimates Technical bulletin comparing the efficacy of estimating nest density using distance sampling with line transects and strip transects. Endangered Species Considerations This section is not applicable to the proposed project. Necessity and Ethical Use of Animals This study will determine nest success and estimate of density of waterfowl on the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge, Colorado, USA. All necessary precautions will be utilized to avoid harm to waterfowl during this study; however, an Animal Care and Use Form is being submitted with this proposal for research approval.

Share this: Facebook Twitter Reddit LinkedIn WhatsApp With growth in research, there has been great changed experienced in the healthcare setting. The new environment in provision of healthcare has been modeled to cope with the ever changing nature of diseases and social life. New medical practitioners are facing great challenges as they transit from class to evidence based practices, which define new trend in nursing. Evidence-based practices environment is poising great challenges not only to new nurses but also to experienced nurse (Melynk, 2002). The new practice require nurses to apply clinical evidence to clients situations through the use of clinical judgment and considering the client values ant eh resources available in the healthcare system. The practice environment for nurses has greatly changed with the changing and increased focus on the evidence-based practice. Evidence based practice can be defined as well calculated, conscious and explicit employment of current evidence in the decision making process when providing care to individual patients. Evidence-based practice (EBP) is therefore understood to be a decision making approach through which clinicians tend to use best evidence available and also consult with patients to come up with best care option which suits the conditions of the patient (Ferguson and Day, 2007). In nursing, this approach has been emphasized but there is a great focus on participation of the client, the clinical judgment, and the resources available in the healthcare system. In the current environment where healthcare system is becoming more cost conscious, healthcare practitioners have to make rational decision. However, there are many challenges that are facing the implementation of this system especially for the new nurses who have not gained enough experience. In light of the growing importance of evidence-based practice in healthcare provision, this paper looks into the importance of the evidence based practices in the new healthcare market. The paper will also focus on the challenges that have been encountered in strive to adapt evidence based practice. Significance of evidence based practiced Evidence-based practice has greatly changed the landscape of healthcare provision. It has made it possible for health care providers to use the best practices that have been greatly research in details while handling their patients. Evidence-based practice puts the client value at the center of the health care practices making sure that clients have a contribution to their healthcare. This is in the sense that EBP ensure that client values and practices are considered while providing healthcare (Ferguson and Day, 2007). This creates a patient-centered healthcare system in which patient preference, needs and values acts as guide to all clinical decision made by healthcare providers. Clinical judgment is at the center of provision of healthcare. It is a critical aspect in EBP which is used to health nurses and other healthcare practitioners to make the best appropriate clinical decision that will result to least health effects on the patient. EBP decision making process need to be based on rational technical knowledge, best identified and researched practices, and patient contribution (Gerrish et al., 2007). EBP assist medical care practitioners to make the most appropriate clinical decision that takes care of all the above aspects. Therefore evidence-based practice is all about assisting healthcare providers to give the utmost best care that will assist patients to recover in the shortest time possible. It creates a consultative and involving process in which nurses make decision based on the best practice and client contribution. Challenges of implementing evidence based practice There have been reports of substantial improvement in health outcome for patients who are treated through evidence based practices. Well designed studies have shown that improved patient outcomes are more likely to be realized when nurses use research evidence in handling patients. However, there are many impediments which have made it difficult to implement EBP in healthcare settings especially for novice medical practitioners. There are many nurses who are struggling to implement EBP in their practice due to a number of reasons. There are eight factors that have been cited as impediments in implementation of EBP. One of the greatest challenges facing implementation of EBP is lack of knowledge on use of evidence based practices. It has been shown that most nurses do not have enough knowledge to integrate research findings in their practices. Research findings shows that there is little evidence that shows that most nurses, especially novice nurses have knowledge on the implementation of EBP in their practices (Paramonczynk, 2005). A study by Bonner and Sandon (2008) that sought to examine the knowledge, attitude and nurses use of research found out that there was variance in EBP knowledge among nurse. The study concluded that in order to overcome knowledge barrier, nurses need to have specific research education, leadership and enabling work environment to effectively implement EBP in their practices. The second factor that has been identified as a barrier to implementation of EBP is misperception and negative attitudes on research and evidence based practices. Most nurses have a negative attitude towards research and do not understand what entails EBP. This problem has persisted especially in old nurses due to fear of change of what can be identified as ‘practice culture’. It is a fear for change. However, a study by Bonner and Sandon (2008) found out that senior nurses were likely to have positive attitude towards research and implementation of EBP compared to younger nurses. In this study, only 44% of the nurses showed positive view of research and willingness to undertake extensive research. The third factor inhibiting implementation of EBP is lack of knowledge on how to carry out search and appraise best practices (Tagney and Haines, 2009, p. 488). There has been identified problem on the knowledge of nurses on how to carry out research. It has been identified that three factors which determine nurse utilization of research include individual characteristics of nurse, characteristics of the organizations, and environmental characteristics. Most nurses are not well equipped to carry out research which leads to effective practice of EBP (Bonner and Sandon, 2008). In Bonner and Sandon (2008), it was found out that while 58.9% of the participants had gone through a research unit in their study, only a dismal 14.5% showed a good understanding of research design and only 10.8% understood statistics and date interpretation (p. 340). In this study, 36.3% identified lacks of skills as a barrier to implementation of EBP. The fourth factor that has inhibited EBP is the overload of nursing work that leaves them with no time to carry out research (Tagney and Haines, 2009, p. 488). With increased shortage in nursing and in other areas of medical care, workload has become a major problem not only in implementation of EBP but also in provision of general healthcare. In a study by Bonner and Sandon (2008) lack of enough time to carry out the study, which emanates from work overload was identified as the third highest barrier (44.9%) after resources (55.2%) and support from peers (49.7%). With overload of works, nurses have not time to carry out research. The fifth factor is constraints within the organization. For one to carry out extensive research there must be resources. There has to be adequate nursing journals, books, internet, and other resources with credible research findings. In Bonner and Sandon (2008) study, 55.2% identified resource constraint as one of the barriers to implementation of EBP which ranks it higher above all other constraints. The sixth barrier is contradictory patients’ expectations. For example there are some patients who may demand to be given antibiotics for upper respiratory infection which may not be indicated in their physician’s prescription. Most patients who come to seek healthcare services come with preconceived ideas about the prescription they will received which has been contributed by wide scale dissemination of inaccurate medical information. Most nurses therefore feel they are not doing the right thing or simply avoid creating scenes with patients and hence restrain from implementing EBP. The seventh factor is the fear for one to have different practice from what other nurses or medical peers are practicing which directly emanates from organizational culture (Tagney and Haines, 2009, p. 488). Most nurses have found out when they join a health care facility, there is culture of care that has been carried over. Nurses will therefore fear implementation EBP as it may deviate from the normal practices. Therefore lack of support from peers, as was demonstrated in Bonner and Sandon (2008) study is the second largest barrier identified by 29.7% of the nurse. The eighth and last factor is large amount of information that can be found in nursing journals and books which sometimes may be confusing to practitioners. There is a large amount of information from different research findings and some of the information has been found to be inaccurate and hence confusing to most nurses. Nurses therefore find it difficult to identify the correct information to use in EBP. Share this: Facebook Twitter Reddit LinkedIn WhatsApp

Loyola Marymount University Maintain Tradition and Hierarchy Historians Questions

Loyola Marymount University Maintain Tradition and Hierarchy Historians Questions.

The decades after the French Revolution were characterized by opposing forces: on the one hand people insisted on expanding democracy and the political power of ordinary people; on the other hand, authorities desperately shored up tradition and hierarchy. 1-Those who wanted to maintain tradition and hierarchy historians call conservatives. Provide a definition of this 19th-century ideology in your own words. 2-There were many in Europe who opposed these conservative goals and supported at least some of the changes associated with the French Revolution. Those who believed in the concept of individual liberties were the liberals. Provide a definition of this 19th-century ideology in your own words. 3-Liberalism grew in influence, even touching Russia, which was ruled by an autocratic czar, or emperor.Read the following texts: Liberalism in Russia documents.pdfHow do we see the influence of liberalism? How do the authors characterize the 19th century?4-Though the Decembrist revolt in Russia had primarily been carried out by military officers, ordinary people had made the liberal revolutions elsewhere possible, with workers, artisans, and peasants enacting protests. What forms of protest did the peasants of the Ariège employ? Why did they dress up as women during their protests? 5-Liberals focused their efforts on advancing liberties rather than equality. Guaranteeing liberties to all, such as freedom of speech, was not the same thing as political or social equality. Many liberals were educated members of the middle class and they looked down upon uneducated manual laborers. Such people, they believed, were not suitable for politics. In France, they viewed such people as responsible for the violence that they believed had derailed the Revolution.To gain an understanding of a liberal’s view of equality, read the following texts. François Guizot (1787-1874) was a leading politician and a liberal who served under King Louis Philippe in France.Speech of October 5, 1831I have heard equality much spoken of; we have called it the fundamental principle of our political organization. I am afraid there has been a great mistake. Without doubt there are universal rights, equal rights for all, rights inherent in humanity and which no human being can be stripped of without injustice and disorder. It has been the honor of modern civilization to redeem these rights from that mass of violence and force under which they had long been hidden and to bring them back to light. There you have personal rights, universal and equal for all, from which stem equality in civil order and in moral order. But will political rights be of this order? It is through tradition, through heredity that families, peoples, and history subsist; without tradition, without heredity you would have nothing of that. It is through the personal activity of families, peoples, and individuals that produces the perfectibility of the human race. Suppress it, and you will cause the human race to fall to the rank of the animals. I say that aristocracy is the condition of modern societies, a necessary consequence of the nature of modern democracy. Upon this aristocracy two conditions are to be imposed: First, it is to be constantly submitted to the control and examination of democracy; second, it must recruit itself constantly from the people.Speech of February 15, 1842I am, for my part, a decided enemy of universal suffrage. I look upon it as the ruin of democracy and liberty. If I needed proof I would have it under my very eyes; I will not elucidate. However, I should permit myself to say, with all the respect I have for a great country and a great government, that the inner danger, the social danger by which the United States appears menaced is due especially to universal suffrage; it is that which makes them run the risk of seeing their real liberties, the liberties of everybody, compromised, as well as the inner order of their society.What was the difference between universal rights and political rights, according to Guizot? Why was he an enemy of universal suffrage? 6-Liberals, who generally held “white collar” jobs such as lawyer, had a different understanding of economic liberty than “blue collar” workers, such as peasants or artisans. For liberals, liberty meant the individual right to property and the right to control the land, business, or wealth you owned without restrictions from the King, the Church, or the community. How did the peasants of the Ariège understand liberty? 7-There were other forces of change transforming Europe, not just new ideas stemming from the French Revolution. How did capitalism, an economic system based on the concepts of economic liberalism and private property, impact the peasants of the Ariège?For a description of capitalism (written by proponents of the system), see: IMF – What is Capitalism? 8-There were other forces of change transforming Europe, not just new ideas stemming from the French Revolution. How did capitalism, an economic system based on the concepts of economic liberalism and private property, impact the peasants of the Ariège?For a description of capitalism (written by proponents of the system), see: IMF – What is Capitalism?

Note that you are not obligated to use these same quotes in your final paper due at semester’s end–you may well choose different ones as you continue the research/reading/writing process for this project. Post a few brief replies to the initial posts of other students–but do not nit-pick them about the fine points of MLA-Style (That’s my job. Only kidding. Sort of). But feel free to add some words of praise or encouragement. 2nd paragraph: Read the student sample paper, p. 634 and discuss its presentation:Review the introduction—how effective is the story/scenario the writer uses?Discuss the effect of anecdotes in arguments?

Keep ALL research found, documented in your project outline. You will turn this in with your final paper. 7. DO NOT CUT AND PASTE FROM THE INTERNET! IT IS ILLEGAL AND CONSIDERED CHEATING/PLAGIARISM! Some things to keep in mind: 1. Reporters write in the upside-down triangle format giving the most general info first and getting more specific as the article goes. 2. Don’t forget to add eye-witness accounts with quotes. 3. Keep in mind the audience for your article. 4. Also remember that NONE of these creatures has been “proven” to exist. There are eyewitness accounts, videos, stories and the like, but there are also rampant hoaxes out there that are produced for fun and entertainment or in some cases, just to promote tourism.

Part II -“You Are The Expert” Paper: 1. Create a 3 paragraph paper incorporating all of the information from your research. 2. The paper should include everything you know about the creature or legend. Be creative. Before you write, decide whether you want to prove its existence or disprove it.

Include at least 2 quotes from witnesses or experts. c. One in-text citation d. One parenthetical citation
