Concern is increasing over the future cumulative impacts of multiple stressors on freshwater biodiversity and ecosystem function, especially in alpine environments where climatic warming increases with elevation. Here, consideration of individual species traits enables translation of changes in...
This paper provides a framework for modeling the effects of climate change on key indicators of interest to regional land-use planning teams. The framework is based on input from a technical workshop held on October 16, 2008, as well as follow-up with technical experts and a review of the...
Climate change is expected to drive major changes in agricultural production around the world, but estimates of the economic impact of these changes for Canadian agricultural production have been inconsistent. Most models use aggregate temperature data such as average temperature or growing...

Afforestation and stand age affected soil respiration and net ecosystem productivity in hybrid poplar plantations in central Alberta, CanadaDownload
Afforestation and stand development can significantly affect soil respiration and net ecosystem productivity (NEP). I studied 1) the effects of afforestation on NEP by comparing cropland previously planted to barley (on a barley-barley-alfalfa-alfalfa-alfalfa rotation) and that converted to a...
The Natural Regions and Subregions classification represents the state-of-the-art in ecological land classification in Alberta. It is becoming increasingly apparent, however, that current landscape patterns are destined to change in coming decades as a consequence of global warming. In this...
The development of novel biomarkers to help assess whether polar bear (Ursus maritimus) health is impacted by long-term physiological stress associated with climate change represents an emerging area of research. With progressively greater reductions in sea ice cover and a corresponding decrease...
Assisted migration to address climate change: recommendations for aspen reforestation in western CanadaDownload
Abstract: Human-aided movement of species populations in large-scale reforestation programs could be a potent and cost-effective climate change adaptation strategy. Such large-scale management interventions, however, tend to entail the risks of unintended consequences, and we propose that three...
A changing climate is the largest threat to forest productivity in western Canada and to the ability of forested landscapes to provide ecological and economic services, both now and in the future. As climate changes, locally adapted tree populations become mismatched with local conditions,...
