Climate change is expected to drive major changes in agricultural production around the world, but estimates of the economic impact of these changes for Canadian agricultural production have been inconsistent. Most models use aggregate temperature data such as average temperature or growing...
Genetic mapping and physiological characterization of water-use efficiency in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) on the Canadian PrairiesDownload
Temporal or seasonal water deficit is one of the major factors limiting crop yield on the Canadian Prairies. Empirical knowledge suggests that carbon isotope discrimination (Δ13C), through its negative relationship with water-use efficiency (WUE), is a good index for selecting crop varieties...
This paper discusses a project undertaken at the University of Alberta Libraries to create metadata for a notable sheet music collection: the Walder G. W. White Sheet Music Collection, which is currently in the process of being described, digitised, and promoted. The history of the collection is...
