  • It’s All about Relationships: AMF-Plant Associations, the
           Rhizosphere, and Our Changing World

    • Authors: Joel Velasco
      Abstract: Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are obligate biotrophic organisms that facilitate nutrient uptake in exchange for organic carbon as part of a symbiotic association with their host plants. This symbiotic relationship is among the oldest known and has been important for the coevolution of both symbionts. This review explores the relationship between Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and their hosts, the role AMF play in the invasive strategies of certain plants, and how severe pressure affects the reciprocal relationship. This review hopes to add to the body of knowledge and to the conversation about these dynamic relationships and the timescale on which they operate, because this information will prove valuable as humanity attempts to manage lands and produce food in an unstable climate.

  • Islam Is the New Black: Muslim Perceptions of Law Enforcement

    • Authors: Jesenia Robles
      Abstract: Research shows that healthy police-community relationships are important for an effective police department. However, although many studies have investigated the relationship between racial minorities and police, only a small portion focus on the Islamic community. This is problematic because hostility towards the Islamic community has been on the rise in the United States (US) since the attacks of 9/11 (Jackson, 2010), and current Middle Eastern conflicts have led to an influx of Muslim refugees into the US. This has further diversified neighborhoods and is the reason that it is just as imperative to explore police-Muslim interactions as it is to explore police interactions with other minority groups. This study asks—how do Muslim community members perceive the police, and how do their interactions with police affect their perceptions of law enforcement' This study hypothesizes that, like racial minorities, Muslim community members perceive the police more negatively than average, and that their interactions with police negatively affect their perceptions. A survey was be distributed to a sample of Muslim community members to measure their perceptions of police. A snowball sampling method was used, facilitated by a prominent member of the Muslim community. The sample was drawn from a mid-size city in the Northwest.

  • How Far Does Influence Go' Racialized Resistance and University

    • Authors: Chandra Reyna
      Abstract: In recent years, universities have found themselves in the spotlight for their approaches to grievances of racial bias and discrimination. To better understand how university culture can influence millennials’ understanding and explanations of racial phenomena, I examine the ways in which students navigate issues of racial inequity. Data reveals that the culture of the examined university, created by an adoption of a racial orthodoxy, overwhelmingly leads to a system I call racialized resistance. Under racialized resistance, a student's race acts a master status and determines how they can participate in politicized civic engagement. I find students employ four strategies: strategic suppression, acceptable resistance, avoidance, and power analysis.

  • Assessing Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory as a Computational Tool
           to Model Chromophores Intercalated into DNA Scaffolds

    • Authors: Eric Nelson
      Abstract: Understanding first-principles energy transport in organic molecules reveals novel energy harvesting systems, quantum computing, and solar power energy transportation and production. DiSC2(5), also named Cy5, exhibits bright fluorescence signals and has shown promising lossless exciton transport properties, as well as tunable energy absorption and emission when conjoined with DNA. This paper focuses on functional groups of organic molecules, specifically the chromophoric red dye DiSC2(5) and its interaction with H- and J-aggregates and with DNA. Density functional theory (DFT) and time dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) are applied to investigate the chromophore Cy5 in vertically stacked (H-aggregates) and slipped assembly dyes (J-aggregates) arrangements in order to assess computational tools for the prediction of optimized structural characteristics and hypsochromic, bathochromic exciton behavior.

  • How Education Level and Willingness to Learn Affect Older Adults in Their
           Use of Mobile Technology in Southwest Idaho

    • Authors: Kimberly M. Neagle
      Abstract: As a person’s age increases, their use of technology decreases (Casado-Muñoz, 2015), which can hinder their access to resources, such as medical care, online products and services, and basic communication. Previous research shows that if seniors have higher education levels and willingness to learn, they are more likely to use technology (Bailey & Sheehan, 2009). This project used the cultural evolution theory and social learning to examine how education levels affect a senior’s use of technology, and how their willingness to learn affects their adoption of mobile technology. Seventy individuals were surveyed, aged 65 years or older: 45 individuals enrolled currently in educational courses and 25 individuals who are not. Although there were no significant findings found, this research gives a deeper understanding of the factors that influence technology use in seniors, and how to encourage such usage.

  • Who Uses Social Networking Sites' Exploring Associations among
           Personality and the Relationship with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram

    • Authors: Chantal Martinez
      Abstract: 46 Who Uses Social Networking Sites' Exploring Associations among Personality and the Relationship with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram Chantal Martinez: McNair Scholar Dr. Kim Hardy and Dr. Charles Honts: Mentors Psychology Social network sites are attracting the attention of numerous researchers. Recently, several studies have examined how people are forming identities on social networking sites. Therefore, greater levels of variable specification are required to further the research on this topic. Testing the relationships among key variables is important when trying to understand these online social forums. Although there has been a rapid growth in the use of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, psychological theory explaining the use of social networks lags. Therefore, the purpose of this research is 1) to examine how personality traits influence which type of social network site individuals will use, and 2) to investigate whether specific social network sites are eliciting the display of particular personality characteristics. Fifty-five participants were recruited through social media (i.e., Facebook) and 239 participants were obtained from a Western University to participate in a survey. Researchers found no associations between overt narcissism and having social network accounts. Surprisingly, there was significant correlations between having personality characteristics of both conscientiousness and honesty and using Instagram. Finally, there was a significant correlation amongst covert narcissism and using Facebook. By recognizing relationships between variables such as personality and social network site usage, psychologists can work towards understanding how the online web is changing our social lives and social behaviors.

  • Policies, Work, and Community: Why Idaho Farmworkers Choose to Stay

    • Authors: Kimberly Luna
      Abstract: Idaho’s agricultural industries depend on Mexican and Mexican-American farmworkers for labor to maintain farms, crops, and livestock. Despite their important role in Idaho’s economy, many farmworkers are undocumented and live with the fear of deportation. This study explores Idaho’s Latino migration patterns since the railroad companies recruited Mexican immigrants in the early 1900s through today’s Mexican population residing in Idaho. Overall, this paper strives to explain why undocumented immigrants are planning to remain in the U.S. permanently. In an effort to collect data and understand, a survey was administered in Spanish to 102 seasonal farmworkers who had a residency of more than two years in Idaho. The study finds that 83% of undocumented immigrants would remain in the United States rather than return to Mexico. In a previous study (2003), Wampler et al. found that 52% of undocumented immigrants preferred to stay. The percentage increase will be explained through social factors, rather than economic. Ultimately, this research hopes to inform on the large undocumented Latino population. It is pivotal for Idaho’s lawmakers to make adequate policy implementations to keep a population that has always been crucial to the economic growth of the Gem State.

  • Economic Growth under Weak and Strong Sustainability Scenarios

    • Authors: Sean Ippolito
      Abstract: Romer (1990) introduced endogenous growth by placing emphasis on human capital as a major driver of innovation. Barbier (1999) expanded this framework to include a single exhaustible resource, natural capital. These developments added to the discussion of economic growth, innovation, and the production process. This project extends Romer and Barbier’s endogenous growth framework to include natural resource utilization in the consumption function in order to open the discussion to weak and strong sustainability. This project compares the growth rates, steady state, and dynamics across these models so that we more effectively capture non-linearities and feedback loops. Finally, we explore the question of whether a weak or strong sustainability viewpoint in an endogenous growth framework leads to economic collapse or prosperity.

  • Developing a Tree-ring Chronology for Reconstructing Past Climate
           Conditions: Coral Pink Sand Dunes, UT

    • Authors: Amy L. Cutter
      Abstract: The Coral Pink Sand Dunes (CPSD) is one of the largest active dune fields in the Grand Staircase of the Colorado Plateau. A disjunct stand of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) seemingly thrives within the dune field. The presence of a multiple-aged stand suggests the site has experienced varied climatic conditions since becoming established. Other geomorphic systems in the region (e.g., arroyos) indicate sensitivity to small climate fluctuations; perhaps the dunes are similarly sensitive, leading to the question—could the trees be used to reconstruct past climate, and could that reconstruction be used to model dune activity with climate variability. The climate-growth relationship was tested by correlating the tree-ring chronology with precipitation data from a climate reporting station in Kanab, UT (15 km to the east) yielding a correlation coefficient of r = 0.73. Calibration and verification of the model results in a reconstruction of precipitation dating back to the beginning of the tree-ring record in 1775. Spectra analysis of the reconstruction determined a 20-year mode of climate variability similar to the Pacific Decadal Oscillation. Comparison between the reconstruction and teleconnection indices showed that precipitation at CPSD responds to variability in the Pacific basin. The results of this study can be applied to other studies on dune activity variability with climate, and further, how dune activity corresponds to other geomorphic processes in the region.

  • A Sting in the Night: Pallid Bat Detection of Dangerous Prey

    • Authors: Nicholas Carlson
      Abstract: It has been observed in previous studies that Hemprich long-eared bats (Otonycteris hemprichii) are frequently stung during predation attacks on scorpions. Although a highly toxic and dangerous prey, the scorpion toxicity does not kill the bat. The sting, however, does seem to inflict a great amount of pain. Here, we examine the role of bat vision in predator-prey interactions between a similar bat species, pallid bats (Antrozous pallidus) and northern scorpions (Paruroctonus boreus). We address the question: do bats use visual information provided by moonlight to plan attacks on dangerous prey' We predicted that under moonlit conditions, pallid bats would plan attacks on scorpion prey, therefore, being stung less often. Our experiments took place in a flight room in both simulated moonlight and complete darkness. The interactions were recorded live by three high-definition cameras mounted in three separate corners of the interaction arena.

  • Physical Activity and Coping Tactics in Undergraduate Students

    • Authors: Talegria Brown
      Abstract: 8 Physical Activity and Coping Tactics in Undergraduate Students Talegria Brown: McNair Scholar Dr. Mary Pritchard: Mentor Psychology College can be stressful, making it important for students to have effective coping mechanisms in place. While some research has examined how college students deal with stress, very little has examined the effectiveness of physical activity as a coping mechanism for college students. The present study did just that. College students enrolled in Introductory Psychology completed A Quantitative Assessment of Stress Tolerance (Bland, Melton, Bigham, & Welle, 2014). This survey assessed college student stress levels and coping tactics. We also assessed how effective physical activity is as a coping mechanism compared to other forms of coping mechanisms. We found that most students in our population did not exercise; thus, it was difficult to test our hypothesis.

  • Family Matters: The Implications of Family Support on Multiracial Identity

    • Authors: Clarissa Abidog
      Abstract: According to Bronfenbrenner’s (1979) ecological systems theory, family has some of the greatest impacts on how children develop. Recent research has suggested that resilience mitigates multiracial adolescents’ struggle to develop ethnic identity continuity (Kramer, Burke, & Charles, 2015), while alternative evidence supports that multiracial individuals experience maladaptive psychosocial functioning due to ethnic identity confusion (Bracey, Bamaca, & Umaña-Taylor, 2004; Shih & Sanchez, 2005). Although research has investigated ethnic and racial identity development in minority groups, few studies have focused on the interaction between multiracial identity and personal identity development. The present study seeks to determine how the strength of family support interacts with identity exploration in multiracial individuals during emerging adulthood. Self-report questionnaires were distributed to Psychology students from a public university in a metropolitan city in the Pacific Northwest. Additional participants were collected from the general public via social media and through Amazon Mechanical Turk. It is crucial to the development of future generations of multiracial adolescents that their experience is understood so that psychologists, doctors, and community workers may have a better understanding of individual differences.
