Alberta Ski Resorts on the Eastern Slopes and Environmental Advocacy: Conservation Politics and Tourism Developments in Kananaskis Country, 1980-2000Download
This study investigates ski resort development and proposals on the eastern slopes of Alberta between 1980 and 2000 with a specific focus on Kananaskis Country. It highlights issues between conservation imperatives and recreation and sport development. It examines the site selection for the 1988...
The exchange of native pathogens between wild and domesticated animals can lead to novel disease threats to wildlife. However, the dynamics of wild host-parasite systems exposed to a reservoir of domesticated hosts are not well understood. A simple mathematical model reveals that the spill-back...
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...
Assessing the Conservation status of Neotropical Dry forests using Geographic Information Systems and Optical Remote SensingDownload
Planet Earth is undergoing a rapid rate of ecosystem conversion and degradation and one of the major challenges of current environmental science is to contribute to the management and conservation of biodiversity through the development of tools for assessing environmental change. The main goal...
Beyond the host plant: Multi‐scale habitat models for a northern peripheral population of the butterfly, Apodemia mormo (Lepidoptera: Riodinidae)Download
The Mormon metalmark (Apodemia mormo) butterfly is widely distributed throughout western North America. It is listed as threatened, however, in Saskatchewan, Canada because of a small population size within a restricted habitat. To most effectively manage for this species, land managers and...
The conservation of species requires preservation of natural habitats. Where the integrity of natural habitats has been upset, species go extinct. All natural habitats are continuing to decline, both inside and outside of reserves. Habitat change is partly a natural process (e.g., succession),...
Black-tailed prairie dog declines in northwestern Mexico: species-habitat relationships in a changing landscapeDownload
One of the three largest systems of black-tailed prairie dog (BTPD) colonies is located in northwestern Chihuahua, Mexico. During the last two decades, the area occupied by these colonies has been highly reduced and fragmented. Previous studies suggested that agriculture, poisoning, cattle...
Canada’s boreal forest is the breeding ground for some 288 species of resident and migratory birds. Approximately 65% of the species that are currently of highest conservation priority in the boreal region are associated with wetlands and riparian areas. Although estimates vary with scale and...
Since the mid-2000’s there has been a major shift in molecular ecology to the use of genomic methodologies. These methods utilize genome-wide sampling of genetic variation and allow for consideration of questions that cannot be answered with a handful of microsatellite markers or a few gene...
