In his plays, Heiner Müller uses postdramatic techniques to challenge audiences. Adaptations of his work tend to either engage with these techniques or attempt to make his work more comprehensible for audiences. In this thesis, I will investigate examples of Müller adaptations from different...
Adaptation to high grain diets proceeds through minimal immune system stimulation and differences in extracellular matrix protein expression in a model of subacute ruminal acidosis in non-lactating dairy cowsDownload
Problem statement: Subacute Ruminal Acidosis (SARA) is a metabolic disorder affecting approximately 20% of all dairy cattle in North America. Although the presence of SARA has been described for some time, the etiology of the disorder remains uncertain. For example, many animals diagnosed with...
Anthony Giddens writes that self-identity is constructed by the individual from the details of her own life. The individual arranges these details into a reflexive understanding of self that both accounts for her present circumstances and orients her in the social world. This process is much...
Climbing simulated vegetation to heights of ungulate hosts by larvae of Dermacentor albipictus (Acari: Ixodidae)Download
Abstract: Larvae of winter ticks, Dermacentor albipictus (Packard), ascend vegetation in autumn and form clumps that attach to passing ungulate hosts. We tested the hypothesis that vegetation height determines the height of clumps. During the vegetation-to-ungulate transmission period (early...
According to many biologists, explaining the evolution of morphological novelty and behavioral innovation are central endeavors in contemporary evolutionary biology. These endeavors are inherently multidisciplinary but also have involved a high degree of controversy. One key source of controversy...
Conserving Alberta’s Biodiversity Under a Changing Climate: A Review and Analysis of Adaptation MeasuresDownload
As a province and a nation we have committed to conserving our native biodiversity. In this discussion paper I examine this goal through the lens of climate change. The intent is to draw attention to issues that need to be addressed and to illustrate options for adapting our current system of...
South Asians in Canada are increasingly using the Family Class immigration category to sponsor spouses from their home countries. This qualitative study examined the steps family-sponsored spouses and their sponsors or family members have taken to facilitate their linguistic, economic, social,...
Cultivating Place, Livelihood, and the Future: An Ethnography of Dwelling and Climate in Western GreenlandDownload
In order to investigate how Inuit Greenlanders in western Greenland are experiencing, responding to, and thinking about recent allegedly human-induced climate change, this dissertation ethnographically examines the lives of Greenlanders as well as Norse and Danes in the course of past historical...
Diet and Growth of Northern Pike in the Absence of Prey Fishes: Initial Consequences for Persisting in Disturbance-Prone Lakes.Download
The northern pike Esox lucius is a renowned piscivore, but will prey opportunistically on invertebrates (e.g., in small lakes of boreal Alberta, where winterkill can unexpectedly reduce or eliminate prey fishes). We emulated such a disturbance by stocking a fishless lake with northern pike and...
Inequality, collective action, and adapting climatic variability are all central adaptive problems that shaped the evolution of our species’ sociality. Equally so, because of the internal logical structure of these challenges, each of these problems also sits at the heart of climate change....
