Blasting in or near water can negatively affect fish. In Canada, there are maximum allowable limits for blasting-induced overpressure (100 kPa) and peak particle velocity (PPV; 13 mm/s) to protect fish and their incubating eggs, respectively. No studies, however, have related PPVs from blasting...
Question: Can a wet meadow plant community be established on abandoned peatlands through broadcast plant diaspore spreading in western Canada? Does fertilization impact the development and establishment of the wet meadow? Location: Evansburg, Alberta, Canada Methods: Wet meadow vascular and...

Inconsistent growth response to fertilization and thinning of lodgepole pine in the Rocky Mountain Foothills is linked to site indexDownload
Fertilization of conifers often results in highly variable growth responses across sites which are difficult to predict. The goal of this study was to predict the growth response of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia) crop trees to thinning and fertilization using basic site and foliar...
New insights about barnacle reproduction: Spermcast mating, aerial copulation and population genetic consequencesDownload
Barnacles are mostly hermaphroditic and they are believed to mate via copulation or, in a few species, by self-fertilization. However, isolated individuals of two species that are thought not to self-fertilize, Pollicipes polymerus and Balanus glandula, nonetheless carried fertilized...
Physiological, ecological and environmental factors that predispose trees, stands and landscapes to infestation by tree-killing Dendroctonus beetlesDownload
In the last century the frequency and severity of outbreaks of tree-killing Dendroctonus beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) have increased. Small-scale drivers within trees likely drive outbreak dynamics across landscapes. At a small scale, variation in carbohydrate availability within the stems...
