Territorial behaviour is widespread in the animal kingdom, with creatures seeking to gain parts of space for their exclusive use. It arises through a complicated interplay of many different behavioural features. Extracting and quantifying the processes that give rise to territorial patterns...
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...
Bacterial response to siderophore and quorum-sensing chemical signals in the seawater microbial communityDownload
Background Oceans are iron-deficient and nutrient-poor environments. These conditions impart limitations on our understanding of and our ability to identify microorganisms from the marine environment. However, less of knowledge on the influence of siderophores and N-acyl homoserinelactone as...
Worldwide, forest pathogens are a major cause of forest disturbances and can impact economic revenues and endanger host species and their ecosystems. Genomics represents one of the most promising avenues to better understand and prevent forest disease epidemics. Pathogen genome characterization...
Abstract: We studied effects of oil and gas exploration, using the most recent seismic exploration technologies, on tundra plant communities and soils in four vegetation types in the Low Arctic of western Canada, two to three years post-disturbance. For all four vegetation types, seismic lines...
Interannual variability in trophic status of shallow lakes on the boreal Plain: Is there a climate signal?Download
We explored relations between climate and trophic status of shallow lakes (lake area > 5 ha, mean depth < 3.2 m) located on the subhumid western Boreal Plain of Canada. Correlation and regression analyses were used to assess the association between indicators of climate and satellite-based...
Abstract: This study compares soil respiration and its heterotrophic and autotrophic components in four land use types: agriculture, 2 and 9 year old hybrid poplar plantations, grassland, and a native aspen stand in north central Alberta, Canada, over a period of two growing seasons (2006 and...
The biosphere as an increasing sink for atmospheric carbon: estimates from increased nitrogen depositionDownload
Estimates of carbon uptake and storage based on global nitrogen deposition, C:N ratios for typical terrestrial ecosystems, and recent ecosystem-scale nutrient studies indicate that 1.0- 2.3 Gt C yr-1 of carbon storage may be stimulated by anthropogenically caused increases in nitrogen deposition...
