The authors examine the history of the Faculty of Law at the University of Alberta. Beginning with a look at the early requirements to practice law in Alberta, the authors discuss the events leading to the establishment of the first permanent law school in the province. An analysis of the...
The forage maturation hypothesis (FMH) proposes that ungulate migration is driven by selection for high forage quality. Because quality declines with plant maturation, but intake declines at low biomass, ungulates are predicted to select for intermediate forage biomass to maximize energy intake...
Achieving Conservation when Opportunity Costs Are High: Optimizing Reserve Design in Alberta’s Oil Sands RegionDownload
Using Alberta, Canada, as a case study we use a trade-off analysis to systematically explore the relationship between conservation targets and economic opportunity costs in the context of coarse-filter reserve design. We use the Marxan conservation planning software to generate reserve designs at...
An Adminstrative Data Merging Solution For Dealing With Missing Data In A Clinical Registry: Adaptation To ICD-9 to ICD-10Download
Background: We have previously described a method for dealing with missing data in a prospective cardiac registry initiative. The method involves merging registry data to corresponding ICD-9-CM administrative data to fill in missing data 'holes'. Here, we describe the process of translating our...
[...] withdrawals would be based on the stock of assets in the fund, which depend on contributions from all previous years. Since this stock is unlikely to change much from year to year, withdrawals from the fund would be quite stable.
Community pharmacists’ views and practices regarding natural health products sold in community pharmaciesDownload
Background Reports of regulatory and evidentiary gaps have raised concerns about the marketing and use of natural health products (NHPs). The majority of NHPs offered for sale are purchased at a community pharmacy and pharmacists are “front-line” health professionals involved in the marketing and...
Beautifully preserved, nearly complete theropod skeletons from Alberta (Canada) allow re-evaluation of the taxonomic status of North American tyrannosaurids. It is concluded that the most parsimonious interpretation of relationships leads to the separation of the two species of Albertosaurus...
Plants engage in diverse and intimate interactions with unrelated taxa. For example, aboveground. oral visitors provide pollination services, while belowground arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) enhance nutrient capture. Traditionally in ecology, these processes were studied in isolation,...
Numerical experiments were developed using different water table depths and soil textures to investigate the impact of aspen harvesting on hydrological processes on the Western Boreal Plain. The effect of harvesting on soil moisture dynamics, fluxes at the water table, and water table fluctuation...
