    Taken at Fort Providence, North West Territories, this image captures the interaction between the smoke from an extinguished forest fire and light from the sun. The research being carried out involved developing a sensor to estimate the energy released from forest fires that occur every summer...

    The neurodiversity and disability rights movements recognize that there are multiple ways of being, thinking, and perceiving in the world. Thanks to the development of Contemporary Disability Arts since the 1980s, disabled and neurodivergent artists have been creating and sharing their diverse...

    My PhD research involves determining the effects of industrial noise on several owl species in the boreal forest of northeastern Alberta. Owls use vocal communication to attract mates and defend territories, and they use acoustic cues when hunting for prey at night. To determine whether owls...

    The following image reveals the contradictions of Cuban society: the incredible architectural aesthetics, for example seen in the figure of the Havana Capital (el Capitolio) here and the deterioration and impoverishment of the capital city depicted in the dark garbage ridden streets. Light and...

    Oil and gas resources are solar energy reserves from prehistoric times, which we use everyday to power our lives. In many cases, these resources are non-renewable, but what if it were possible to recover and reuse some? In the Innovative Process Lab of the Natural Resources Engineering Facility...

    We have been studying a gene in zebrafish (called unc119b) that is required for many developmental processes, including eye formation. On the left, is a cross-section of a normal zebrafish eye at 3 days old that has been stained with fluorescent antibodies. The lens is surrounded by green (a lens...

    Plants have evolved a number of interesting features to help facilitate the passage of water and sugar around their tissues. One such molecular structure highlighted here in this balsam poplar leaf blade are aquaporins. As the name implies, aquaporins are small pores that carry water- but have...

    Current estimates suggest that one in every three species today is either threatened by, or considered at risk of, extinction. Despite such alarming statistics, and mounting evidence of a major biodiversity crisis currently taking place, our understanding of the factors that prevent species'...
