Aftermath of mountain pine beetle outbreak in British Columbia: Stand dynamics, management response and ecosystem resilienceDownload
The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins) (MPB) has infested and killed millions of hectares of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia Engelm) forests in British Columbia, Canada, over the past decade. It is now spreading out of its native range into the Canadian boreal...
Breeding matters: Natal experience influences population state-dependent host acceptance by an eruptive insect herbivoreDownload
Eruptive forest insects are highly influential agents of change in forest ecosystems, and their effects have increased with recent climate change. State-dependent life histories contribute significantly to the population dynamics of eruptive forest insect herbivores; however, the proximate...
The fact that Canadian Arctic ice is melting is not in contention-it's the rate at which ice is melting and what melting ice means for the future of the Northwest Passage that ignite controversy. According to Huebert (2003). data from satellite imagery suggest that the rate of melt in the...
Consequences of distributional asymmetry in a warming environment: Invasion of novel forests by the mountain pine beetleDownload
The range of many Holarctic forest insects does not comprise the entire range of their hosts, as they are often limited to more southern latitudes by the adverse effects of cold temperatures. Global climate warming has led to the increased potential for forest insects to invade novel habitats of...
Direct and indirect drivers of plant diversity responses to climate and clipping across northern temperate grasslandDownload
It is well known that climate can influence plant community assembly via a multitude of indirect and direct pathways. However, interpretations of plant diversity responses to simulated climate change experiments, and subsequent predictions of plant communities under future climate scenarios,...
Qualitative Inquiry as a Method to Extract Personal Experiences: Approach to research into organizational climate change mitigationDownload
Climate change and solutions to solving this wicked problem require a mixed methods research approach that draws on quantitative and qualitative inquiry together. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the applicability (and effectiveness) of a mixed methods approach applied to research...
