  2. Let P be a set of n points in the plane in general position. The order type of P specifies, for every ordered triple, a positive or negative orientation; and the x-type (a.k.a. crossing type) of P specifies, for every unordered 4-tuple, whether they are in convex position. Geometric algorithms on P typically rely on primitives involving the order type or x-type (i.e., triples or 4-tuples). In this paper, we show that the x-type of P can be reconstructed from the compatible exchange graph G1(P) of noncrossing spanning trees on P. This extends a recent result by Keller and Perles (2016), who proved that the x-type of P can be reconstructed from the exchange graph G0(P) of noncrossing spanning trees, where G1(P) is a subgraph of G0(P) . A crucial ingredient of our proof is a structure theorem on the maximal sets of pairwise noncrossing edges (msnes) between two components of a planar straight-line graph on the point set P.

  3. Abstract

    Sense of place holds promise to understand how people perceive and respond to social and ecological change; however, using this concept to explore vulnerability and adaptation first depends on identifying the multiple ways people define their relationship with a place.

    We introduce the meaning‐dependence framework to account for the broad array of person–place connections within social–ecological landscapes.

    We applied this framework to private landowners in the Southern Great Plains of the United States, a working landscape experiencing ecological transformation from grasslands to degraded woodlands.

    Using a mail survey, we explored the structure of sense of place based on the relationship between place meanings and place attachment. We employed complementary analytical methods: correlation analysis, ordinary least squares regression, and machine learning through a regression tree and random forest.

    Place meanings explained a large amount of variation in place attachment and were characterized by intercorrelations and interactions. Across analyses, experiential meanings reflecting personal psychological connections to one's land were the predominant drivers of landowners' place attachment.Way of lifeemerged as a central meaning for understanding sense of place on private lands.

    The meaning‐dependence framework builds on existing research to account for the multiple ways meanings inform human connections to a place. This framework is broadly applicable to any setting and can capture diverse configurations of person–place relationships and increase the utility of sense of place in social–ecological research.

  4. Abstract

    This primer describes research on the development of motor behavior. We focus on infancy when basic action systems are acquired—posture, locomotion, manual actions, and facial actions—and we adopt a developmental systems perspective to understand the causes and consequences of developmental change. Experience facilitates improvements in motor behavior and infants accumulate immense amounts of varied everyday experience with all the basic action systems. At every point in development, perception guides behavior by providing feedback about the results of just prior movements and information about what to do next. Across development, new motor behaviors provide new inputs for perception. Thus, motor development opens up new opportunities for acquiring knowledge and acting on the world, instigating cascades of developmental changes in perceptual, cognitive, and social domains.
