The potential of aspen clonal forestry in Alberta: breeding regions and estimates of genetic gain from selectionDownload
Background: Aspen naturally grows in large, single-species, even-aged stands that regenerate clonally after fire disturbance. This offers an opportunity for an intensive clonal forestry system that closely emulates the natural life history of the species. In this paper, we assess the potential of...
Abstract: Background: Commercial forestry programs normally use locally collected seed for reforestation under the assumption that tree populations are optimally adapted to local environments. However, in western Canada this assumption is no longer valid because of climate trends that have...
Breeding efforts have been crucial in solving the challenges of wheat production in western Canada. This study evaluates and compares the agronomic traits of plant height, days to heading, lodging, days to maturity, grain yield, disease resistance, test weight, thousand kernel weight, and protein...
Since the end of the American Folk Revival, in the late 1960s, folk festivals have undergone a dramatic change. Concurrently, folk music was transformed through capital from its origins as national folkloric music to a successful popular music genre. As professional folk music emerged during the...
SSHRC Awarded IDG 2011: This pilot project will lay the groundwork for the creation of a digital, interactive map of the city of Edmonton. Four specific objectives: 1] creation of a network of researchers, students, practitioners and community-involved citizens interested in urban theory and...
Genetic structure, virulence and fungicide sensitivity of Pyrenophora teres f. teres and P. teres f. maculata populations from western CanadaDownload
The fungi Pyrenophora teres f. teres (Ptt) and P. teres f. maculata (Ptm) cause net form net blotch (NFNB) and spot form net blotch (SFNB) of barley, respectively. The genetic structure of a collection of 128 Ptt and 92 Ptm isolates, representing fungal populations from western Canada, was...
SSHRC Awarded IG 2018: This project addresses a hidden bias of mainstream teaching and learning, wherein Indigenous and locally-held knowledge is often positioned as the oral teachings of the past, in contrast to the contemporary character of digital literacy. The three-year project takes a...
Conservation of forest-dwelling arthropod species: simultaneous management of many small and heterogeneous risksDownload
The Canadian insect fauna is too inadequately Understood to support well-informed assessments about its conservation status: however, the foregoing collection of synthetic papers illustrates potential threats front industrial forestry. Loss of forest species and dramatic changes in forest insect...
SSHRC Awarded PDG 2015: Challenge: Education for Aboriginal students across Canada is in dire need of enrichment given the legacy of residential schools and the persistent failure of mainstream curriculum to engage Aboriginal learners. The education of Aboriginal students has become a...
SSHRC Awarded IG 2015: An estimated 51% of Canadian children aged 5-14 years regularly participate in youth sport , making it a fundamental feature in the lives of almost two million children and their families. Parents invest substantial amounts of time and money to support their children's...
