Regional Food Clusters and Government Support for Clustering: Evidence for a 'Dynamic Food Innovation Cluster' in Alberta, Canada?Download
This paper analyzes government support for networking and regional cluster growth in the food sector. It is, to the best of our knowledge, the first paper to provide a literature review of studies on regional food clusters, focusing on key features that characterize successful regional food...
Abstract: Retention of residual trees in \"cutblocks,\" logged blocks of forest, has been proposed as a method to conserve songbirds in landscapes fragmented by clear-cut logging. We examined songbird communities in the boreal mixed-wood forest of Alberta, Canada, to investigate the effect on...
SSHRC IDG awarded 2018: The research seeks to disrupt settler, colonial, race-based understandings of the Métis-as-mixed and as victims of fragmented social geographies, by applying a place-based analysis of Métis peoplehood. Drawing on methods from Archaeology, History, Women's Studies, and...
Premaxillary tooth count tends to be stable amongst toothed dinosaurs, and most theropods have four teeth in each premaxilla. Only one case of bilaterally asymmetric variation is known in theropod premaxillary dentition, and there is no record of ontogenetic or individual variation in...
Linking occurrence and fitness to persistence: habitat-based approach for endangered greater sage-grouseDownload
Detailed empirical models predicting both species occurrence and fitness across a landscape are necessary to understand processes related to population persistence. Failure to consider both occurrence and fitness may result in incorrect assessments of habitat importance leading to inappropriate...
SSHRC Partnership Development grant awarded 2018: Globally, most park agencies have little capacity to produce in-house social science or ecological research, or conduct meaningful knowledge exchange with Indigenous and local communities. The goal of this project is to enhance the generation and...
An input-output analysis of the economic impacts of chronic wasting disease and bovine spongiform encephalopathy in Alberta and CanadaDownload

Grounding global seeds: a contextual comparison of the politico-ecological implications of genetically modified crops for farming communities in Alberta (Canada) and Andhra Pradesh (India)Download
The main objective of my dissertation is to analyze and compare the socio-ecological implications of the adoption of genetically modified (GM) seeds and alternative agroecological farming methods for farming communities in Alberta, Canada and Andhra Pradesh, India – localities situated in...
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...
