Benthic marine habitats in Canada have been well-sampled since the annual groundfish survey commenced in 1970. However, trawl surveys cover only non-rocky sediments and many species collected are not identified to lower taxa, leaving large gaps in our understanding of benthic diversity. Sponges...
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...
Biodiversity loss endangers ecosystem services and is considered as a global change that may generate unacceptable environmental consequences on the Earth system. Global biodiversity observations are needed to provide a deep understanding of the biodiversity - ecosystem services relationship and...
Multiple novel and rapidly changing environmental factors (i.e. anthropogenic stressors) are increasingly affecting ecological communities, and their functional roles in ecosystems. Consequently, freshwater biodiversity has declined worldwide; however, the functional impacts of this loss should...
Bees are a key component of terrestrial ecosystems and provide valuable ecosystem services to both natural and agricultural landscapes. It estimated that 87.5% of native plants benefit from pollination, including 1/3 of global food crops. Additionally, pollination by bees provides maximized...
Prairie wetlands provide many important ecosystem services including supporting biodiversity, improving water quality, preventing erosion, recharging groundwater, and attenuating floods. However, more than half of prairie wetlands in North America have been lost, primarily due to drainage for...
The first fossil echinoids are recorded from the Cayman Islands. A regular echinoid, Arbacia? sp., the spatangoids Brissus sp. cf. B. oblongus Wright and Schizaster sp. cf. S. americanus (Clark), and the clypeasteroid Clypeaster sp. are from the Middle Miocene Cayman Formation. Test fragments of...
Comparative genomics of Lactobacillus reuteri from sourdough reveals adaptation of an intestinal symbiont to food fermentationsDownload
Lactobacillus reuteri is a dominant member of intestinal microbiota of vertebrates, and occurs in food fermentations. The stable presence of L. reuteri in sourdough provides the opportunity to study the adaptation of vertebrate symbionts to an extra-intestinal habitat. This study evaluated this...
Conserving Alberta’s Biodiversity Under a Changing Climate: A Review and Analysis of Adaptation MeasuresDownload
As a province and a nation we have committed to conserving our native biodiversity. In this discussion paper I examine this goal through the lens of climate change. The intent is to draw attention to issues that need to be addressed and to illustrate options for adapting our current system of...

The 1,000 plants (1KP) project is an international multi-disciplinary consortium that has generated transcriptome data from over 1,000 plant species, with exemplars for all of the major lineages across the Viridiplantae (green plants) clade. Here, we describe how to access the data used in a...
