A review of aquatic biomonitoring with particular reference to its possible use in the AOSERP study areaDownload
The general principles, approaches, and methods of aquatic biomonitoring are outlined from a review of the literature, with emphasis on those aspects directly applicable to the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) study area. It is argued that an aquatic biomonitoring program...
This report is not intended to be a definitive review of published literature concerning environmental changes which might occur in northern ecosystems as a result of massive industrial development. Rather, it is intended to summarize a large number of surveys and some research of a distinctly...
The Alberta Forest Service has questioned the use of Caragana arborescens Lam. (common names: caragana, Siberian peatree and Siberian peashrub; the common name caragana will be used throughout this report) as a high-portion species for afforestation of reclaimed areas associated with oil sands...
Techman Engineering Ltd. was jointly commissioned by the Reclamation Research Technical Advisory Committee and the Oil Sands Environmental Study Group to obtain state-of-the-art information on the propagation of selected woody plants. The purpose was: a) to obtain information on the propagation...
Air pollution and its effects on various ecosystems has been a subject of increasing controversy. The European forest damage situation has heightened the public's awareness of the problem. Historically, the observed pollution damage was believed to be due mainly to sulphur dioxide pollution. ...
The enhancement or creation of wildlife habitat is receiving increased attention as a viable reclamation alternative for disturbed sites as a result of better reclamation technology, increased government and public awareness of the importance of wildlife, the realization of the adaptability of...
This is one of a series of reports that presents the findings of the Plains Hydrology and Reclamation Project (PHRP), an interdisciplinary study that focuses primarily on hydrologic aspects of reclamation of surface coal mines in the plains of Alberta. This research has been conducted by the...
In 1980 RRTAC published RRTAC Report No. 80-5: Manual of Plant Species Suitability for Reclamation in Alberta to provide users with information on a variety of plant species suitable for use in reclamation programs in Alberta. The manual was well received and went out of print in late 1988. An...
The degree of soil compaction is dependent on many variables including soil type and soil conditions as well as vehicle type and traffic density. Soil compaction can lead to limited plant development because of poor aeration, low nutrient and water availability, slow water permeability and...
The objective of this literature review was to evaluate the available information on the effects of stripping versus not stripping topsoil during pipeline construction in potentially arable Luvisolic soils in forested areas. A profile description representative of an undisturbed Luvisol under...
