A cross-cultural comparison of scientific language use: Indigenous and Eurocentric discourse on issues regarding caribou in the NorthDownload
This work is an attempt to understand and lessen the borders that exist between Indigenous knowledge and Eurocentric science. I contend that the two groups represent distinct cultures and that it is important to look at the differences and similarities that occur in language use as the two...
An adaptive approach to endangered species recovery based on a management experiment: reducing moose to reduce apparent competition with woodland caribouDownload
Species that are rare yet widely distributed are among the most challenging to conserve. The mountain ecotype of woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus) is declining because of apparent competition with non-caribou ungulates (NCU) such as moose (Alces alces). I experimentally assessed whether...
The health of caribou (Rangifer tarandus) is impacted by multiple risk factors, which may affect availability of caribou for consumption. From analysis of secondary dietary intake data, consuming caribou was found to be positively related to measures of diet quality—caloric intake and dietary...
Recently documented ice patch sites in the southwest Yukon are ideal for evaluating precontact hunter-gatherer land-use patterns in the western subarctic. Located in the alpine of the mountainous regions of the boreal forest, ice patches are associated with well preserved hunting equipment,...
Caribou (Rangifer tarandus L.) populations in Canada are threatened by climate change and anthropogenic landscape disturbance, which may negatively affect caribou energetics and range occupancy, with negative consequences for vital rates. Caribou are the basis of economy and spirituality for...
Caribou (Rangifer tarandus) are a vital component of the cultural history and contemporary existence of First Nations and northern communities. However, caribou habitat is increasingly threatened by cumulative effects of climate change and land-use pressures from human settlement, forestry, and...
Measuring wildlife response to seismic lines to inform land use planning decisions in northwest CanadaDownload
Development of hydrocarbon resources across northwest Canada has spurred economic prosperity but also generated concerns over impacts to biodiversity. To balance these interests, comprehensive land use plans have been used to match targeted management strategies to ecological components deemed...
Reproduction and transmission of the winter tick, Dermacentor albipictus (Packard) in central AlbertaDownload
Masters thesis. A two part study, involving a field and laboratory component, was developed to provide information on the reproductive performance and transmission of D. albipictus under field conditions and relate this information to the die-off of moose in Alberta.
Masters thesis. Examines relationship between moose browsing and willow growth on a moose winter range.
The Role of Human Altered Landscapes and Predators in the Spatial Overlap Between Moose, Wolves, and Endangered CaribouDownload
Human altered landscapes can cause the endangerment or extinction of a species, not only by a direct loss of habitat but by altering predator-prey relationships. Predators can drive prey to extinction when the density of the predator becomes subsidized by another abundant, alternate prey. Such...
