Problem. In the theoretical framework of the sport sociology and coaching was taken analysis the link of activity undertaken by people practicing martial arts with their physical general fitness and special fitness/efficiency. It was decided to take into account the social factor (activity) and the regular measurement of efficiency. Method. As an indicator of activity was adopted ranking led by technical director, as an indicator of the special efficiency - held technical level kyu or dan, awarded on the basis of expert judgment by the practical test. The research was carried in 6-year period 2007-2012. It includes research (purposeful choice) N=14 person practicing in this time martial arts in sections of Rzeszow Centre "Dojo Budokan" (RCDB) - central branch of Idokan Poland Association (IPA); people who are the leaders of ranking lists and winners of high scoring. Researched are practicing under direction the same coach in Rzeszow and Strzyzow. It was employed a method of expert estimate (ranking executed by technical director with assistance of two other experts, 10th dan holders), participant observation and two investigative instruments: 1) International Physical Fitness Test (IPFT); 2) Index of Physical Fitness of K. Zuchora (IPFZ). So an analysis of documents (rankings, the results of indicated tests - measuring efficiency, a central register IPA) were used, too. Statistical analysis included the use of Spearman's rank test. Results. Calculated the correlation of motor skills (according to the results IPFZ) activity (by ranking) and the results of IPFT. It has been found that there is very strong correlation between all three variables. Conclusions. Subjects are the best from among researched by the reason of their biggest activities fairest (engagement), diligence and consistency. They achieve high level of development of motor ability and physical efficiency and next technical degrees. © Idōkan Poland Association.

Objectives: To compare the impact of walking with a recreational activity on postprandial glycemia, heart rate variability, and mood state following the dinner meal. Design: Participants with type 2 diabetes (T2D) participated in 3 trials on different days in random order after ingestion of a standardized dinner meal (300 ± 6 kcals). Setting: University clinical testing laboratory. Participants: Twelve participants (9 female, 3 male 58.7 ± 2.4 years) with uncomplicated T2D not taking insulin or beta-blocker medications. Intervention: Thirty minutes of self-paced walking on a treadmill (TM), 30 minutes of table tennis played continuously against the iPong robot (TT), and 30 minutes of rest (CON) undertaken 30 minutes after the start of ingestion of the same dinner meal on three occasions within a week. Measurements: Blood glucose was measured at 30-minute intervals through 180 minutes starting immediately prior to the dinner meal. Profile of Mood States was completed before and immediately following exercise or rest. Sympathovagal balance (heart rate variability) was measured prior to eating and 30 minutes after trial completion. Results: Compared with TT or CON, TM resulted in significantly lower postprandial blood glucose (P <05), as well as a greater quantity of physical activity than TT (+72%) or rest (+91%; P <01). Mean heart rate during TM was significantly greater than during TT (+25.9 beats per minute; P <01). However, neither mood state nor HRV were significantly different among trials. Conclusions: Thirty minutes of self-paced walking following the dinner meal may be more effective at lowering postprandial glycemia in T2D than a similar duration of table tennis played continuously against a robot. © 2014 American Medical Directors Association, Inc.

Moist tussock tundra, dominated by the sedge Eriophorum vaginatum L., covers approximately 3.36 × 108 km2 of arctic surface area along with large amounts of subarctic land area. Eriophorum vaginatum exhibits ecotypic differentiation along latitudinal gradients in Alaska. While ecotypic differentiation may be beneficial during periods of climate stability, it may be detrimental as climate changes, causing adaptational lag. Following harvest of a 30-year reciprocal transplant experiment, age-specific demographic data on E. vaginatum tillers were collected to parameterize a Leslie matrix. Yellow Taxi analysis, based on Tukey’s Jackknife, was used to determine mean pseudovalues of tiller population growth rate ($$\overline{{\phi_{i} }}$$ϕi¯) for four source populations of E. vaginatum tussocks that were transplanted to each of three gardens along a latitudinal gradient. Source populations responded differentially along the latitudinal gradient. Survival and daughter tiller production influenced differences seen at the mid-latitude garden, and the overall tiller population performance was generally improved by northward transplanting relative to southward transplanting. A comparison of home-source $$\overline{{\phi_{i} }}$$ϕi¯ and away-source $$\overline{{\phi_{i} }}$$ϕi¯ within the same transplant garden indicates no home-site advantage. Although populations were still growing when transplanted to home-sites ($$\overline{{\phi_{i} }}$$ϕi¯ = 1.056), tiller population growth rate increased as ΔGDD became more negative relative to the home site (i.e., as tussocks were transplanted north). These results imply that populations are affected by climate gradients in a manner consistent with adaptational lag. This study documenting the response of high-latitude ecotypes to climate gradients may be an indication of the possible future effects of climate shift in more southern latitudes. © 2014, The Society of Population Ecology and Springer Japan.

Ecotypic specialization among populations within plant species can result in adaptational lag when the climate changes directionally. However, disturbances, whether caused by direct effects of human activities or indirect effects such as climate change, may represent zones within which natural selection is relaxed. We compared the genetically based variation in leaf morphology in Dryas octopetala within three natural populations arrayed along a snowbank gradient, to that found in a recently colonized gravel pad less than 100 m away (1600 total leaf lengths measured; 4 sites x 10 transects/site x 4 plants/transect x 10 leaves/plant). Elevated among-clone leaf length variation within the disturbed site supported the idea that disturbances may represent "hotspots" of evolutionarily significant genetic variation. In the Arctic, where colonization of disturbances is primarily by native species, adaptive evolution may be more rapid than previously thought due to relaxation of selection and subsequent mixing of previously isolated gene pools in such areas. © 2014 Regents of the University of Colorado.

Upland habitat buffers (i.e., strips of noncrop, herbaceous vegetation) that are established adjacent to wooded fencerows offer landowners an economical option to provide wildlife benefits within intensive agricultural landscapes. However, being located near a wooded edge may increase grassland bird vulnerability to edge effects through reduced nest survival. We examined nesting bird communities in field margins adjacent to wooded field edges with no buffer (i.e., control), narrow (approx. 10-m) buffers, and wide (approx. 30-m) buffers in an intensive agricultural system in the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley, United States. Dickcissel (Spiza americana) and red-winged blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus) accounted for 97% of nests. Nest density was >7 times greater in wide buffers than in narrow. We modeled nest survival in Program MARK as a function of time (yr and season), nest-site, and local vegetation characteristics. Nest survival was influenced by among-and within-season temporal effects and local vegetation structure, but not by buffer width. Nest success varied substantially between years and within seasons for dickcissel (12.9% and 19.1% early in the seasons of 2003 and 2004, respectively), but not for red-winged blackbird (15.1%). Overall nest-success estimates were similar to noncrop, herbaceous strips elsewhere in the United States, though whether or not these estimates represent population sinks remains uncertain. Based on this research, we advocate integrating upland habitat buffers within intensive agricultural landscapes and emphasize the use of wide buffers when grassland-nesting birds are a conservation priority. © 2011 The Wildlife Society.

Creating and restoring patches of noncrop early-succession vegetation within agricultural landscapes may mitigate grassland bird population declines caused by agricultural land use and intensification. Achieving this goal requires an ability to balance avian benefits with agronomics, which may be facilitated by understanding how bird communities respond to various conservation practices. We evaluated bird richness, abundance, Shannon diversity, and Total Avian Conservation Value in 20 replicates of four Conservation Reserve Program practices in an intensive rowcrop agricultural landscape in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley from May-Jul., 2005-2007. Conservation practices included: (1) large blocks of structurally-diverse early-succession vegetation (6-8 y old trees) and three buffer types; (2) 30 m wide monotypic filter strips with tall dense switchgrass (Panicum virgatum); (3) 30 m wide diverse filter strips with a forb-native warm season grass mixture; and (4) 60 m wide early-succession riparian forest buffers (1-3 y old trees). The breeding bird community was dominated by red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus; 43% of total) and dickcissels (Spiza americana; 42% of total) but commonly included eastern meadowlarks (Sturnella magna), indigo buntings (Passerina cyanea), mourning doves (Zenaida macroura), and northern bobwhite (Colinus virginianus). We observed ≥1.8 × more dickcissels in large blocks and diverse filter strips than other buffers and greater Shannon diversity in large blocks than any buffers (P < 0.05). Diverse filter strips had ≥1.6 × greater overall bird density (7.2 birds/0.6 ha), on average, than all other practices. Based on these data, we conclude that buffers are attractive to farmland breeding birds and may provide important ecological benefits to supplement a conservation management system founded on large blocks of early-succession vegetation. © 2014, American Midland Naturalist.
