The forage maturation hypothesis (FMH) proposes that ungulate migration is driven by selection for high forage quality. Because quality declines with plant maturation, but intake declines at low biomass, ungulates are predicted to select for intermediate forage biomass to maximize energy intake...
Masters thesis. Resulting from an examination of alpine macrolichen vegetation in west central Alberta and north central Yukon in 1975 and 1976 to determine species richness, eveness, diversity and cover; to examine habitat factors; describe and compare communities; evaluate community...
An input-output analysis of the economic impacts of chronic wasting disease and bovine spongiform encephalopathy in Alberta and CanadaDownload
This thesis utilizes input-output analysis to calculate the economic impacts from potential prion diseases outbreaks in Alberta and Canada. Both chronic wasting disease and bovine spongiform encephalopathy have the capacity to not only affect the farmed cervid and cattle industries, but to impact...
Autonomous Mothers and Social Policy: How the CCTB, UCCB, and Alberta Child Care Subsidies Govern Women's Autonomy in MotherhoodDownload
Liberalism’s conceit is the separation of the private from the public sphere, a conceit that, in turn, supports a common sense in which families are understood to be private entities that exist outside the purview of the state. And yet, Canadian income support programs clearly demonstrate the...
SSHRC IDG awarded 2018. This study aims to answer the question: ‘How has the illicit introduction of opioid fentanyl and its ‘analogues’ such as carfentanyl, altered life in Alberta’s prisons? In Canada's opioid crisis, prisons end up housing a disproportionate number of the marginalized and...
Plants engage in diverse and intimate interactions with unrelated taxa. For example, aboveground. oral visitors provide pollination services, while belowground arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) enhance nutrient capture. Traditionally in ecology, these processes were studied in isolation,...
Numerical experiments were developed using different water table depths and soil textures to investigate the impact of aspen harvesting on hydrological processes on the Western Boreal Plain. The effect of harvesting on soil moisture dynamics, fluxes at the water table, and water table fluctuation...
Effects of forest harvesting and fire on fish assemblages in Boreal Plains lakes: A reference condition approachDownload
To assess the impacts of forest harvesting and fires on lentic fish assemblages in the Boreal Plains ecoregion (Alberta, Canada), we applied a reference condition approach to 37 lakes in burned, logged, or undisturbed catchments. Fish assemblages in the reference lakes were classified into two...
Ethnic Identity Discourses of Recent Ukrainian Immigrants to Canada: Interactions between New Ukrainian-Canadians and the Established Ukrainian-Canadian DiasporaDownload
Ukrainian-Canadians are a relatively well-established group in this country. This thesis focuses on an as yet unstudied segment of this community, namely the new, post-Soviet Ukrainian immigrants. As an interdisciplinary project, the thesis researches the ethnic identity discourses of recent...
