Determining the viability of salvaged organic peat soil using peat-mineral mixes and surrogate growth species Poa protensis and Lolium multiformDownload
Peat-mineral mixes (PMM) have been shown and recommended as a suitable reclamation material when upland boreal forest soil (LFH) is not available or cost-prohibitive. During the construction of some wellsites an engineered pad is constructed above the original peat soils. During the reclamation...
Water quality of the North Saskatchewan River and its four tributaries in Alberta's Industrial HeartlandDownload
Monitoring the quality of the water in the North Saskatchewan River and its tributaries is critical to ensure compliance with provincial and federal guidelines related to water quality; for the benefit of humans, other animals and the ecosystems surrounding these areas. The human population and...
Coral reef degradation and loss of coral species is occurring at increasing rates throughout the world's oceans, where corals are faced with the effects of a destructive combination of natural and anthropogenic stressors. Overfishing, tourism, extraction of fossil fuels, coral mining, increased...
Salmonellosis is one of the most common food infections identified in medical microbiology. Salmonella typhimurium, a pathogenic bacterium that produces this food infection is found to be a problem in the United States and Canada. It causes certain symptoms ranging from mild discomfort to death...
Geographic variation in morphological, genetic and clonal diversity of the parasitoid wasp Pelecinus polyturator (Hymenoptera: Pelecinidae)Download
The wasp species Pelecinus polyturator, the pelecinid wasp, is a widely dispersed species that is most easily recognized by its abnormally long abdomen. The range of this organism's habitat extends from Argentina to Canada making it subject to a wide range of weather and climatic conditions. This...
Bacteria are commonly encountered cell culture contaminants. Due to the costly consequences of media contamination and the loss of research production, further research should be devoted to the prevention of contamination so time and money are not wasted. Phage have been demonstrated to prevent...
Malagasy lemurs are under great threat from destruction of their habitat. Since humans colonized Madagascar 2000 years ago roughly 90% of Madagascar's forests have been destroyed. Alongside this, fully eight genera and 17 species have gone extinct. With the present situation it is of the utmost...
Spatial and temporal variation of benthic macroinvertebrate communities in three westlope cutthroat trout tributaries in the Rocky MountainsDownload
Westslope cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii lewisi) is an important subspecies to Alberta, as a representative of a rich and diverse fish taxon that intrinsically holds many local adaptations to their native range. The reduction of westslope cutthroat trout from their historical range to...
Hypertension is the number one reason to visit the family physician in Canada and is responsible for substantial health care expenses. Approximately one third of community-dwelling Canadians with hypertension have blood pressure (BP) levels exceeding recommended thresholds, and this is partly...
Induction of apoptotic cell death by the dietary flavonol, quercetin, in MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 breast adenocarcinoma cell linesDownload
Numerous studies have provided considerable evidence on quercetin's potential as a chemotherapeutic agent. Quercetin is a highly bioavailable dietary flavonoid that induces apoptosis in different cancer cell lines. Currently, the reported effects of this compound have been observed at...
