Porosity and permeability in the Graminia Formation, Upper Devonian Winterburn Group in the Germain Field, northeastern AlbertaDownload
The Upper Devonian Graminia Formation (Winterburn Group) found in the Germain Field of northeastern Alberta includes the Blueridge Member (Frasnian) and the Upper Graminia Member (Famennian). A green silty-shale paleosol overlies the formation in this area. The bitumen-bearing dolostones of this...
Background: Cycling is an increasingly popular recreational activity and mode of transportation, and many North American municipalities are implementing policies and infrastructure to encourage cycling participation for all ages. Crashes while cycling, however, can have devastating consequences...
In many jurisdictions, policies aimed at improving educational processes and outcomes have focused on teacher professional learning. Yet, there is a gap in research concerning teachers’ understandings of their own professional learning as it is influenced by school improvement policies. Using an...
Investigating fine-scale movement patterns and comparative swimming performance of the newly identified and threatened Rocky Mountain Sculpin (Cottus sp.) across its Canadian distributionDownload
Cumulative anthropogenic impacts to the riverscape, including hydrologic alteration, have contributed to an escalated number of freshwater fish species at risk in North America. Species dispersal is an important mechanism underlying many ecological processes. Understanding the scale at which...
A Knife River Flint identification model and its application to three Alberta ecozone archaeological assemblagesDownload
This study presents a reliable and economic model for achieving an accurate Knife River Flint identification, utilizing a macroscopic, microscopic and ultra-violet methodology supported by an experimental protocol. Correct identification of Knife River Flint is essential for understanding of...
The Short-term Impacts of Aspen Clear-cutting on Upland Groundwater RechargeClear-cutting Impacts on Groundwater RechargeDownload
The impacts of aspen clear-cutting on upland groundwater recharge are presented based on two years (2007-2008) of the five year (2005-2009) HEAD2 NSERC-CRD paired-catchment experiment. Research was conducted at the Utikuma Region Study Area (URSA), 370 km north of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in...
Although many policy frameworks, research definitions and programs on Healthy Aging are available in Canada and abroad, little is known about older adults’ perspectives on this topic. Given the steady increase of the numbers of older Canadians, as well as the diversity of their cultural...
The purpose of this study was to trace the inauguration of the Alberta Chapter of the Canadian Bandmasters Association (CBA), its antecedents, eventual formation, inaugural challenges, solutions, unrealized goals, and successful projects. Historical research methodology was utilized to document...
Venison to beef and deviance from truth: biotelemetry for detecting seasonal wolf prey selection in AlbertaDownload
An abrupt interface between mountains and prairies in southwestern Alberta means wilderness areas and carnivore populations overlap cattle grazing lands. Consequently, there is concern about the effects of large carnivores, especially wolves, on livestock. I used GPS clusters and scat samples...
Predation by cougars (Puma concolor) variously can structure ecosystems and preserve biodiversity, engender conflict where livestock and pets are killed, and even drive prey populations to extinction. Effective management requires a firm grasp of the ecological drivers of predation, but these...
