Approaches to the design of a biomonitoring program using arthropods as bioindicators for the AOSERP study areaDownload
Present oil sand extracting plants are licensed to emit up to 635 t of S02 per day, along with large quantities of other gasses and fly ash. Additional oil sand extraction plants are in the planning stages. The cumulative effect of additional plants will tax the ability of the local environment...
A review of aquatic biomonitoring with particular reference to its possible use in the AOSERP study areaDownload
The general principles, approaches, and methods of aquatic biomonitoring are outlined from a review of the literature, with emphasis on those aspects directly applicable to the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) study area. It is argued that an aquatic biomonitoring program...
The ecology (distribution, demography, habitat preferences and food habits) of five of the species of small mammals common to the Alberta Oil Sands are described – the species considered are Clethrionomys gapperi, Microtus pennsylvanicus, Peromyscus maniculatus, Tamiasciurus hudsonicus and Lepus...
The objective of this literature review is to briefly discuss and summarize the available vegetation literature pertinent to the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) study area. It is intended that this review provide one basis for evaluating the current progress regarding...
A preliminary study of chemical and microbial characteristics of the Athabasca River in the Athabasca oil sands area of northeastern AlbertaDownload
A literature review and evaluation of methods used to determine rates of bacterial uptake (heterotrophic assimilation) of organic substrates in fresh water systems was undertaken. The uptake of a \"universal\" substrate - radiolabelled glutamic acid - was determined in order to assess the effects...
An in-depth review of the literature related to deposition of gases and particulates by dry deposition and precipitation scavenging is reported. Recommendations are made on the hypotheses, algorithms or models considered to be most suitable for incorporation into a pollutant transport and...
A review of the available literature was conducted on obligatory insectivorous animals expected or known to occur in the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program study area. Several biologists involved in studies of the area were contacted. Distribution, abundance in the AOSERP study...
This report represents the findings of a literature review carried out on small mammal damage to revegetation areas and on small mammal control procedures. The information gathered in this review was used to help design a project aimed at reducing small mammal damage to reclamation research...
Transportation corridor study. Volume 2 Appendix: Extracts from existing literature compiled for use of Study GroupDownload
With the large number of persons involved in this particular study it was decided that considerable time (money) could be saved by gathering into one volume extracts of available literature. Reports, studies by other groups, articles, information and literature in regard to environmental impact,...
