In vivo and in vitro evaluation of Beauveria bassiana pathogenicity for western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis [MSc Dissertation]Download
Western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis, are major pests in greenhouses. The fungus Beauveria bassiana is a safer alternative to use of chemical insecticides against this insect; and evaluating isolates for high virulence has usually involved in vivo studies. My approach examines in...
Although viable microbial communities have been shown to exist beneath glaciers, the impact of glacial retreat on these communities and development of the resulting foreland ecosystem is not well understood. This study investigated how microbial communities respond to changing conditions brought...

Expression of the stress-regulated RNA helicase of Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803, CrhR, is altered by three known stresses, temperature, light and salt concentration. Here we show that altering the source of fixed nitrogen, either urea, ammonia, nitrate or lack of fixed nitrogen, also results in...

Relationships among diverse root foraging behaviours: understanding plant behavioural types - supporting data
Relationships among diverse root foraging behaviours: understanding plant behavioural types - supporting dataDownload
These are the supporting data for the University of Alberta MSc thesis: Belter, Pamela R. 2014. Relationships among diverse root foraging behaviours: understanding plant behavioural types.
Abstract The sponge reefs, found only off the coast of British Columbia, Canada, are a unique and alien deep sea ecosystem that is not well understood and is threatened by human activities. Here I developed a genetic barcode to differentiate between the two most common sponges on the reefs,...

Maldonado, M, Bayer, K, Lopez-Acosta, M
SUMMARY Several inorganic compounds of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are key to ocean ecology because, among other effects, they sustain primary production. After discovering in the 1980s that sponges can be both source and sink of such nutrients, much has been learned, including that fluxes...

often ineffective in controlling tuberculosis among patients who use illicit drugs1. The occurrence of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is increasing in many parts of the world. Resistance of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. Tuberculosis) to Anti-tuberculosis drugs is man-made. In Egypt, private...
Taking a Multispecies Approach to Evaluating the Effectiveness of Wildlife Passages for Small and Medium Sized Mammals in an Eastern Canadian Boreal ForestDownload
Descrochers, André, Jaeger, Jochen, Martinig, April Robin
Poster presented at the International Conference on Ecology and Transportation in 2015. Research is an investigation into the effectiveness of three different types of wildlife passages along Highway 175 in northern Quebec for small and medium sized mammals using infrared cameras. Two research...
