This thesis contributes to the development of a cryptotephra framework in northwestern North America, providing the initial data for the construction of a regional cryptotephra framework where key cryptotephra layers (those which are widely distributed, easily correlated, and have well...
Dall sheep (Ovis dalli dalli), grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) and wolf (Canis lupus) interactions in the Northern Richardson Mountains, CanadaDownload
Assessing the impact of predators on a prey population is inherently challenging, a fortiori in remote ecosystems. With this thesis, I studied the interactions between a recently declining Dall sheep (Ovis dalli dalli) population and two predators: grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) and wolves (Canis...
With a warming climate, northern ecosystems will face significant ecological changes such as permafrost thaw, increased frequency of forest fires, and shifting ecosystem boundaries including the spread of canopy-forming shrubs into tundra communities. A growing number of observations show...
The following is a qualitative exploration of place identity, wilderness and cultural tourism interpreter guides, and sustainable tourism development in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Four research sub-questions are used to glean insights and advance this study: 1) how are Yukon place identities...
A new species of Pinus Subgenus Pinus Subsection Contortae from Pliocene sediments of Ch'ijee's Bluff, Yukon Territory, Canada.Download
Three structurally preserved conifer ovulate cones are described from Pliocene sediments at Ch’ijee’s Bluff on the Porcupine River, near Old Crow, Yukon Territory, Canada. Cones are ovoid to conical, symmetrical, 3.4–4.4 cm long and 2.8–3.4 cm wide, with helically arranged cone-scale complexes....
Masters thesis. Presented as two papers: "Enhanced Landsat Thematic Mapper. Imagery for Exploration Geology in the Wheaton District, Southern Yukon" and "The Perception and Enhancement of Depth in the Monoscopic Remotely Sensed Images."
Report of study to provide qualitative and some quantitative observations of design and performance of Dempster Highway in Yukon and NWT 5 years after construction of its final phase (1979). Also suggests engineering recommendations and design improvements to alleviate problems arising from...
Masters thesis. Examines a model of single-enterprise development from an urban geographic perspective.
An analysis of the natural vegetation of the Macmillan Pass/Sheldon Lake area of the east-central Yukon TerritoryDownload
Data collected for use in the vegetation component of a biophysical inventory of the Macmillan Pass/Sheldon Lake region is presented and discussed in order to classify and describe the vegetation communities of the area and to postulate on the environmental factors which control the distribution...
Relative abundance and habitat relationships of Clethrionomys rutilus in the south-central Yukon TerritoryDownload
Masters thesis. A study of small mammals on the South Canol Road, south-central Yukon, particularly the northern red-backed vole (Clethrionomys rutilus).
