A Large Fire Database (LFDB), which includes information on fire location, start date, final size, cause, and suppression action, has been developed for all fires larger than 200 ha in area for Canada for the 1959-1997 period. The LFDB represents only 3.1% of the total number of Canadian fires...
We investigated vegetation responses in terms of canopy, ground-layer diversity, and ecological species groups using two restoration treatments at two degraded oak barren and savanna sites in central Wisconsin, USA. The two restoration models tested were (1) process-only, which reintroduced fire...
Enhancing productive capacity in the Canadian Arctic: Assessing the effectiveness of instream habitat structures in habitat compensationDownload
We examined the effectiveness of physical habitat structures (ramps, V-weirs, vanes, and groins) at increasing the productive capacity of a newly created 3.4-km artificial stream in the Barrenlands region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. We quantified changes in fish density and growth in...
Biological invasions are a major and increasing agent of global biodiversity change. Theory and practice indicate that invasion risk can be diminished by reducing propagule pressure, or the quantity, quality, and frequency of introduced individuals. For aquatic invasions, the primary global...
Although anemia is a common complication of chronic kidney disease, practice variability in its management continues to exist. In an effort to standardize management, the Northern Alberta Renal Program implemented an anemia algorithm, the \"Anemia Protocol.\" A cohort design was used to evaluate...
Temperature sensitivity of N2O emissions from fertilized agricultural soils: Mathematical modeling in ecosysDownload
N2O emissions have been found to be highly sensitive to soil temperature (T-s) which may cause substantial rises in emissions with rises in Ts expected in most climate change scenarios. Mathematical models used to project changes in emissions during climate change should be able to simulate the...
Our objective was to assess the potential of carabid beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) as effective bioindicators of the effects of forest management at a Canadian national scale. We present a comparison of carabid beetle assemblages reported from large-scale Studies across Canada. Based on the...
