Biology and control of Russian thistle (Salsola tragus L.) in bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis Shaw) winter ranges in montane grasslands of Jasper National Park, Alberta, CanadaDownload
Russian thistle (Salsola tragus L.) invaded areas of native montane grassland important to winter survival of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis Shaw) were studied in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. The biology of Russian thistle and its control in the Park were studied in the field and...
Evolutionary quantitative genetics and genomics applied to the study of sexually dimorphic traits in wild bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis)Download
The independent evolution of the sexes may often be constrained if male and female homologous traits share a similar genetic architecture. Thus, cross-sex genetic covariance is assumed to play a key role in the evolution of sexual dimorphism (SD) with consequent impacts on sexual selection,...
Environmental sustainability of post mined limestone quarries often requires reclamation to a diverse woody plant community. Woody species diversity may be severely limited if only nursery stock is relied on for propagation material; thus other sources must be evaluated. To address woody species...
Resilient Space: Bighorn Sheep (Ovis canadensis) Ecological Resilience in the Northern Rocky MountainsDownload
Abstract Ecological resilience was defined, reviewed and discussed by synthesis of theory, concepts and empirical evidence presented in the primary literature (Chapter 1). Ecological resilience is concerned with ecological functions and the desirability of alternate states. Management and...
