We will be performing routine ERA maintenance starting 3PM Tuesday Feb 19 until 3PM Wednesday Feb 20. ERA searches and downloads will perform as usual, but the "Deposit" function will be suspended during the maintenance period. When the work is complete, we'll remove this notice. Thanks for your understanding!

Zooarchaeological Analysis of Avian Skeletal material in Neolithic and Early Bronze Age Mortuary Contexts, Cis-Baikal, SiberiaDownload
During the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age in Cis-Baikal, Siberia, human groups inhabiting the region interred their deceased with a variety of objects, including modified and unmodified avian skeletal elements. Archaeological excavation of graves in the Shamanka II, Lokomotiv, and Ust’-Ida...
During the periods 27 January, 3-6 February and 10-13 February 1977, a preliminary survey was conducted on Syncrude Lease 17 to gain the following information on wintering birds: species presence during mid winter; abundance of each species within representative habitats; and numbers of birds...
Indices of Biological Integrity (IBIs) estimate the biological condition of an ecosystem by measuring biological metrics that predict underlying environmental stress. I evaluated the use of IBIs developed from 5 biotic communities at 81 semi-permanent/permanent natural and constructed wetlands. ...
The use of citizen science to identify the factors affecting bird-window collisions at residential housesDownload
Every year a large number of birds die when they collide with windows. The actual number however is difficult to ascertain. Previous attempts to estimate bird-window collision rates in Canada relied heavily on a citizen science study that used memory-based surveys which may have potential biases....
The distribution, foraging behavior, and allied activities of the white pelican in the Athabasca oil sands areaDownload
From mid to late summer 1977 an investigation was made of the distribution and foraging of White Pelicans in the Birch Mountains. This study was linked with a breeding investigation undertaken at the pelican rookery as part of the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program. Aerial...
Between 26 August and 30 October 1974, a reflector device was tested as a deterrent to birds at a small tailings pond (Lower Camp Tailings Pond) located on Syncrude's lease 17, approximately 40 km (25 mi) north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. This tailings pond provided a situation analogous (though...
The objective of the waterfowl segment of the AOSERP/Avifauna program consisted of determining waterfowl species abundance and diversity and habitat associations. During waterfowl aerial surveys the length of wetland edge surveyed in 1976 ranged from 373 to 453 km on 65± wetlands. ...
This study involved evaluation of the habitat for mammals and birds in the area from the proposed tailings pond west to the MacKay River, through identification and mapping of land cover types from aerial photographs and estimation of wildlife populations from existing data. The study was...
Syncrude Canada Ltd. requested that a study of ornithological research be conducted on and near Crown Lease 17, northeastern Alberta, where its bitumen mining, extraction and upgrading plant is in operation. The overall objectives of this study were to (1) determine the abundance and diversity...
