Many accounts of Alternative Food Networks (AFNs) describe them as cohesive social movements that adequately address the social and environmental externalities of food and agricultural production. Yet others question whether initiatives that focus on localized consumer driven change can provide...
Since European settlement of the Canadian Prairies there has been substantial loss of wetlands. This loss occurs in large part due to drainage by private agricultural operators seeking to boost the productivity of their land. Policy makers now seek not only to conserve wetlands and prevent...
A Summary of Land Resource and Groundwater Resource Issues Related to Plains Coal Mine Reclamation in AlbertaDownload
Development and extraction of coal resources in Alberta disrupts the landscape and alters two other important resources, land and groundwater. In order to support coal resource development that was economically and environmentally responsible, the Reclamation Research Technical Advisory Committee...

NFRF-Exploration grant awarded 2020: Sustainability of the beef industry and sustainability of temperate grasslands are equally challenging currently. Beef cattle don’t typically graze on tidy fields of managed pasture, but instead graze complex landscapes with highly diverse vegetation and...
This is one of a series of reports that presents the findings of the Plains Hydrology and Reclamation Project (PHRP), an interdisciplinary study that focuses primarily on hydrologic aspects of reclamation of surface coal mines in the plains of Alberta. This research has been conducted by the...
Canada’s boreal forest is the breeding ground for some 288 species of resident and migratory birds. Approximately 65% of the species that are currently of highest conservation priority in the boreal region are associated with wetlands and riparian areas. Although estimates vary with scale and...
Effects of environmental and disturbance gradients on native bee diversity, abundance and composition in Alberta’s prairiesDownload
Native bees provide pollination services to a range of crops, supporting food production and the global economy. They also support the fitness of native flowering plants and terrestrial plant diversity. These functions are delivered by a diverse community of bees with a broad spectrum of life...
