Aversive conditioning on horse back: A management alternative for grassland systems threatened by sedentary elk populationsDownload
Loss of migratory behaviour in ungulates has been observed worldwide and invites new tools for managing the habitat degradation that results from these sedentary populations. We assessed use of aversive conditioning on horseback as a means of reducing grazing pressure and restoring migratory...
Biological invasions are a major and increasing agent of global biodiversity change. Theory and practice indicate that invasion risk can be diminished by reducing propagule pressure, or the quantity, quality, and frequency of introduced individuals. For aquatic invasions, the primary global...
Enhancing productive capacity in the Canadian Arctic: Assessing the effectiveness of instream habitat structures in habitat compensationDownload
We examined the effectiveness of physical habitat structures (ramps, V-weirs, vanes, and groins) at increasing the productive capacity of a newly created 3.4-km artificial stream in the Barrenlands region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. We quantified changes in fish density and growth in...
Although anemia is a common complication of chronic kidney disease, practice variability in its management continues to exist. In an effort to standardize management, the Northern Alberta Renal Program implemented an anemia algorithm, the \"Anemia Protocol.\" A cohort design was used to evaluate...
Background: In the past forty years, many gains have been made in our understanding of the concept of research utilization. While numerous studies exist on professional nurses' use of research in practice, no attempt has been made to systematically evaluate and synthesize this body of literature...
Sustaining the Recovery of Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) in the North Saskatchewan River of AlbertaDownload
Nearly all Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) populations across North America have experienced losses to historic abundances estimated to be > 99%. This species is especially vulnerable to overharvest, habitat degradation, river fragmentation from dams, and is slow to recover due to life...
SSHRC IDG awarded 2016: Spending on experiential purchases, such as concerts or travel, has been shown to increase consumers' happiness and well-being, while spending on material items, such as shoes or jewellery, can subject consumers to stigma and loneliness. Overall, existing research suggests...
Temperature sensitivity of N2O emissions from fertilized agricultural soils: Mathematical modeling in ecosysDownload
N2O emissions have been found to be highly sensitive to soil temperature (T-s) which may cause substantial rises in emissions with rises in Ts expected in most climate change scenarios. Mathematical models used to project changes in emissions during climate change should be able to simulate the...
A Large Fire Database (LFDB), which includes information on fire location, start date, final size, cause, and suppression action, has been developed for all fires larger than 200 ha in area for Canada for the 1959-1997 period. The LFDB represents only 3.1% of the total number of Canadian fires...
