Effects of self-mastery on adolescent and parental mental health through the mediation of coping ability applying dyadic analysis

Filipponi, Chiara ; Schulz, Peter J. ; Petrocchi, Serena

In: Behavioral sciences, 2020, vol. 10, no. 12, p. 8 p

Evidence demonstrated that self-mastery and coping ability predict mental health in adults and children. However, there is a lack of research analyzing the relationships between those constructs in parents and children. Self-report data from 89 dyads (adolescents’ mean of age = 14.47, SD = 0.50; parents’ mean of age = 47.24, SD = 4.54) who participated in waves 17, 18, and 19 (following T1,...

The experience of solidarity in Poland under communist rule and thereafter

Solska, Magdalena

In:, 2021, vol. 1, no. 1, p. Article 1.2

Although Solidarność was the largest mass movement in the history of after- war Europe, the experience of solidarity during that time in communist Poland has barely been analysed. Drawing on historical accounts of the events in the 1980s and press interviews with Solidarność members, this paper attempts to bridge this gap and identifies key aspects of the experienced solidarity. It...

The implication of the new labor clauses in the USMCA on labor market and trade between the United States, Mexico and Canada

Stäuble, Mathieu ; Matile, Laurent (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2020 ; TDIBM 93.

The North American continent has implemented different free trade agreements throughout the years. From the Canadian-United States Free Trade Agreement (CUSFTA) reached in 1989, between Canada and the United States and quickly replaced by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1994 with the addition of Mexico to the agreement. After 26 years of existence and divergent opinions...

Disproportionate extinction of South American mammals drove the asymmetry of the Great American Biotic Interchange

Carrillo, Juan D. ; Faurby, Søren ; Silvestro, Daniele ; Zizka, Alexander ; Jaramillo, Carlos ; Bacon, Christine D. ; Antonelli, and Alexandre

In: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2020, vol. 117, no. 42, p. 26281–26287

The biological interchange between North and South America associated with the formation of the Isthmus of Panama is key to defining current gradients of species diversity. A major gap in our understanding of the interchange is its asymmetry, where mammals of North American origin attained higher diversity in South America than vice versa. The prevailing view is that this asymmetry resulted...

The Eomyidae in Asia: Biogeography, diversity and dispersals

Kimura, Yuri ; Casanovas-Vilar, Isaac ; Maridet, Olivier ; Kalthoff, Daniela C. ; Mörs, Thomas ; Tomida, Yukimitsu

In: Fossil Imprint, 2020, vol. 76, no. 1, p. 181-200

In Asia, the first find of an eomyid rodent was reported almost one century after the first studies of the family Eomyidae in North America and Europe. Since then, eomyid rodents have been increasingly found in Asia particularly over the past two decades. Here, we review the Asian record of this family at the genus level. Currently, 22 species within 14 genera were reported from Asia,...

The past and future human impact on mammalian diversity

Andermann, Tobias ; Faurby, Søren ; Turvey, Samuel T. ; Antonelli, Alexandre ; Silvestro, Daniele

In: Science Advances, 2020, vol. 6, no. 36, p. eabb2313

To understand the current biodiversity crisis, it is crucial to determine how humans have affected biodiversity in the past. However, the extent of human involvement in species extinctions from the Late Pleistocene onward remains contentious. Here, we apply Bayesian models to the fossil record to estimate how mammalian extinction rates have changed over the past 126,000 years, inferring...

Independent introductions of hedgehogs to the North and South Island of New Zealand

Pipek, Pavel ; Pyšek, Petr ; Bacher, Sven ; Bolfíková, Barbora Černá ; Hulme, Philip E.

In: New Zealand Journal of Ecology, 2020, vol. 44, no. 1, p. -

According to the most recent (2005) compendium on the history of the European hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus) in New Zealand, this small insectivorous mammal was first brought from Europe to the South Island in the 19th century. This introduction has been presumed to be the source of hedgehogs that subsequently spread to the North Island. This view was informed by the absence of hedgehogs in...
