The seasonality of non-structural carbohydrates in mature boreal Betula papyrifera and potential constraints in their remobilizationDownload
Assimilated non-structural carbohydrates (NSC) can be stored as reserves in plants and remobilized during periods of asynchrony between carbon acquisition and carbon demand to fuel essential metabolic functions and growth. However, the framework of NSC allocation to reserves and their...
The use of peat applications and Carex aquatilis for peatland reclamation on post mined landscapes in northern Alberta, CanadaDownload
I investigated peatland reclamation factors in a wetland built on a former open-pit oil sands mine in northern Alberta, Canada. The primary research objectives were to investigate the persistence of peat placed in a newly constructed wetland, the survival and establishment of Carex aquatilis...
Tillage Reversal and Nitrogen Fertilization Affected Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Soil Carbon Stability Differently in a Black Chernozem and a Gray LuvisolDownload
Improving soil carbon (C) sequestration through land management practices is of great interest due to concerns over global climate change caused by increased atmospheric greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations. Soil disturbance by conventional tillage (CT) generally accelerates soil organic carbon...
Thallium (Tl) is a trace metal that can be found at elevated concentrations in waters associated with the mining and refinement of coal and base metals. Although the effects of Tl on aquatic biota are poorly studied, the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) has established a...
Trace element concentrations in riverine fish: relationships with body size, food web dynamics and trace element concentrations in surface waterDownload
Freshwater fish are an important resource and form an essential component of freshwater ecosystems. However, stressors such as water pollution are negatively impacting freshwater biodiversity. Trace elements can be environmental pollutants and have the potential to negatively impact the health of...
Trace elements associated with the coarse and fine aerosol fractions in Sphagnum moss within the Athabasca Bituminous Sands regionDownload
The Athabasca Bituminous Sands industry in Alberta has dramatic impacts on the economy of the province. Nevertheless, with increasing industrial operations, environmental concerns are also raised regarding the contamination of air and water with trace elements (TEs). To better assess the...
Trace elements in berries collected near upgraders and open pit mines in the Athabasca Bituminous Sands Region (ABSR): distinguishing atmospheric dust deposition from plant uptakeDownload
Bitumen mining and upgrading operations in the Athabasca Bituminous Sands Region (ABSR) may lead to increased concentrations of trace elements in the surrounding environment. Elevated concentrations of potentially toxic trace elements could pose a risk to local indigenous communities through the...
Tracking a better way to count wildlife: testing the Formozov-Malyshev-Pereleshin (FMP) formula in the KalahariDownload
The science of conservation biology is about conserving species. To do so often requires information about population sizes. Great efforts have been devoted to counting animals, the diverse means by which are invariably taxa and environment-limited. Faced with a biodiversity crisis,...
