Lactic acid bacteria produce glycans that may be applied in food and pharmaceutical industries as prebiotics, food additives, to prevent pathogen adhesion, or to modulate the host immune system. The recent identification of the structure of galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) preparations demonstrates...
“Missing microbes” in commercial broiler production and the effects of early-life microbial inoculations on broiler microbiota developmentDownload
Modern poultry production relies on strict biosecurity procedures to minimize the risk of introducing pathogens to flocks, and may inadvertently limit exposure to beneficial commensal bacteria that naturally coexist with chickens. Commensal bacteria promote gastrointestinal and immune...
“Blown-pack” spoilage of beef by psychrotrophic Clostridium spp. occurs sporadically and resistance of the endospores to most interventions makes them very difficult to control. Current interventions used to control spoilage and pathogenic bacteria, such as acid washes and heat treatments, do...
Yolk sac infections in broiler chicks: studies on Escherichia coli, chick acquired immunity, and barn microbiologyDownload
The avian yolk sac is a well vascularised membrane that surrounds the yolk of an embryonated egg and functions as a placenta-like structure transferring yolk nutrients including maternal antibodies, to the embryo. The absorption of the yolk sac content during the first days post-hatching is...
Blackleg, caused by Leptosphaeria maculans (Desm.) Ces. & de Not., is an important disease of canola (Brassica napus L.) worldwide. In Canada, blackleg is managed mainly by the cultivation of resistant or moderately resistant canola hybrids and the application of fungicides. Field experiments...
Canada has great forest area with tremendous wood-based cellulose resource. However, the research effort for wood fibers to develop wood cellulose-based advanced materials is still limited. The overall objective of this research is to provide some feasible and efficient approaches for the...
Low socioeconomic status can negatively affect many aspects of a healthy pregnancy, including women’s ability to access and consume healthy foods. Food insecurity, defined as “inadequate or insecure access to food because of financial constraints,” has well-known effects on women’s health and...
Integrating cultural weed management practices with herbicides is an important strategy to reduce wild oat (Avena fatua L.) populations in Alberta, Canada. The purpose of this thesis is to expand the knowledge on wild oat seed banks and seedling emergence within integrated weed management...
