AbstractObjectives: To examine the impact of guided mindfulness practice on psychological distress and psychological capital (hope, optimism, resilience, and efficacy) in doctoral candidates. Participants: Recruitment of a convenience sample of doctoral candidates occurred in July 2015 and participants were randomly allocated to the control or intervention group (38 and 34 participants completed the trial, respectively). Methods: A single-blinded, randomized controlled trial with intention-to-tr...

ABSTRACTAgroforestry parklands are a common land-use in Ethiopia and many parts of the tropics. These systems play an important role in climate change mitigation and adaptation, through carbon (C) sequestration. However, C sequestration in both tree biomass and soil has not been extensively studied for parklands of the Central Rift Valley (CRV), Ethiopia. Therefore, here we sampled a small number of F. albida trees and soil from the Adulala watershed, CRV, to provide a preliminary estimate of th...

Improved prediction of poppy capsule volume is essential for optimal management of poppy crop. In order to estimate poppy capsule volume accurately using remotely sensed imagery, the selection of most appropriate models and predictor variables is essential. Multiple spectral indices with random forest (RF) regression were tested to estimate poppy capsule volume using an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS). Data were collected from field-based physical measurements, in-field spectral measurements and ...

A number of agroforestry models have been developed to simulate growth outcomes based on the interactions between components of agroforestry systems. A major component of this interaction is the impact of shade from trees on crop growth and yield. Capability in the agricultural production systems simulator (APSIM) model to simulate the impacts of shading on crop performance could be particularly useful, as the model is already widely used to simulate agricultural crop production. To quantify and...

Faidherbia albida is an important tree species in the parkland agroforestry system of the Rift Valley region, central and south-eastern Ethiopia. Positive effects of F. albida on crop production are widely recognised. However, the effects of tree pruning, zone and fertiliser interactions on crop growth have not been addressed in earlier studies. A field experiment containing three levels of tree pruning (100% pruned, 50% pruned, and unpruned) as main plots, and application of recommended rates o...

Abstract Biological farming practices using bio-inoculants and renewable organic supplements are being increasingly adopted by primary producers although little is known about their benefits compared to conventional fertiliser practices. Two trials were conducted on sunflower ( Helianthus annuus L., ‘Dwarf Sunsation’) to compare the influence and interaction of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) inoculation with organic and conventional synthetic fertilisers on plant growth and development. Comm...

Undertaking a PhD can be very stressful, due to a range of challenges. These include having to develop discipline expertise as well as generic skills (such as academic writing and maintaining motivation) during a largely solo pursuit. Concern has been growing about the prevalence of mental health issues (such as depression and anxiety) among PhD candidates. A survey of more than 2,000 graduate research students from 26 countries published this year found they were six times as likely to experien...

Unmanned aircraft system (UAS) in combination with multispectral sensors stimulate the utilisation of site-specific technologies to manage crop production according to intrafield variability. Crop monitoring requires accurate calibration. However, radiometric calibration methods in practice are difficult to implement for UAS remote sensing as every single image requires correction due to smaller field of view and changes in light. Therefore, this paper proposes an easy radiometric calibration pr...

Graduate research candidates are the powerhouse of research in universities, yet many have reported feelings of isolation, burnout, and career uncertainty. Karen Barry reports on a study of Australian research candidates which found that increasing numbers are suffering from heightened levels of depression, anxiety, and stress, often citing reasons related to academia’s general work processes, such as writing or publishing research or maintaining motivation while working alone on a single topic....

Organic farmers have reacted with alarm to a draft review released last week that recommends mandatory fungicide treatment for certain plant seeds imported into Australia, including broccoli, cauliflower, radish and spinach. Over 19,000 people have signed a change.org petition objecting to the proposal, which is designed to strengthen biosecurity for plants of the brassicaceae family. Opponents say mandatory fungicide treatment could spell the loss of organic accreditation for organic vegetable ...
