Woodland caribou population declines in west-central Alberta precipitated a wolfcontrol. This program to protect caribou could be compromised if (1) there are strong public pressures against helicopter gunning and strychnine poisoning of wolves and/or (2) other predators compensate to kill...
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...
Trophic Relations of the Red-Necked Grebe on Lakes in the Western Boreal Forest: A Stable-Isotope Analysis.Download
We compared trophic ecology of grebes inferred from stable-isotope analysis to that from gut contents, and compared isotopic ratios of Red-necked Grebes (Podiceps grisegena) from lakes differing in their food webs. Analyses of different grebe tissues (egg yolk and albumen, pectoral and leg...
The role of intestinal microbiota in development of irinotecan toxicity and in toxicity reduction through dietary fibres in ratsDownload
CPT-11 is a drug used as chemotherapy for colorectal cancer. CPT-11 causes toxic side-effects in patients. CPT-11 toxicity has been attributed to the activity of intestinal microbiota, however, intestinal microbiota may also have protective effects in CP!-11 chemotherapy. This study aimed to...
The current recommended vitamin D intake guideline for diet and supplements during pregnancy is not adequate to achieve vitamin D sufficiency for most pregnant womenDownload
Background The aims of this study were to determine if pregnant women consumed the recommended vitamin D through diet alone or through diet and supplements, and if they achieved the current reference range vitamin D status when their reported dietary intake met the current recommendations....
People's perceptions of local food environments influence their abilities to eat healthily. PhotoVoice participants from four communities in Alberta, Canada took pictures of barriers and opportunities for healthy eating and shared their stories in one-on-one semi-structured interviews. Using a...
Patterns of muscle, bone and fat accretion in three biological types of feedlot bulls on three dietary energy levelsDownload
The data used in this study consisted of 119 075 complete lactation records accumulated by record of performance (ROP) from 1976 to 1981. Each individual record consisted of 7, 8 or 9 monthly test day milk weights and corresponding fat percentage. The data for each breed (Ayrshire, Guernsey,...
Non-digestible fibers and dietary interventions: alternative approaches for the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseaseDownload
Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), collectively called inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), are associated with chronic intestinal inflammation, affecting approximately 0.7 % of Canadians. Intestinal microbial dysbiosis have been related to IBD. Therapies that manipulate gut...
Investigation of fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis using stable isotopes in type 1 diabetes, liver failure, islet and liver transplant, and effect of dietary interventionDownload
Elevated plasma lipids are risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD). In certain conditions plasma lipids are normal yet individuals experience increased morbidity. Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is associated with elevated CVD despite normal lipids, while in liver failure low plasma lipids may...
Influence of sire breed on the interplay among rumen microbial populations inhabiting the rumen liquid of the progeny in beef cattleDownload
This study aimed to evaluate whether the host genetic background impact the ruminal microbial communities of the progeny of sires from three different breeds under different diets. Eighty five bacterial and twenty eight methanogen phylotypes from 49 individuals of diverging sire breed (Angus,...
