This is a report of baseline studies of aquatic environments in the Athabasca River. These studies were carried out at the request of Syncrude Canada Limited and were focused in the vicinity of Syncrude's Lease Number 17, which borders the west bank of the Athabasca River north of the town of...
Syncrude Canada Ltd. is producing synthetic crude oil from a surface mine on the eastern portion of Crown Lease 17, Alberta. Aquatic Environments Limited was commissioned to survey the MacKay River which crosses Leases 17 and 22, also held by Syncrude. The survey is intended to provide a...
The study reported here was initiated on July 26, 1971, to provide ecological baseline information on Beaver Creek. Field surveys were carried out from August 7th to August 24th. Of particular interest to this study was the acquisition of quantitative data on fisheries populations as a means of...
I investigated cellular mechanisms of ion and acid-base transport in rainbow trout (Oncorhyncus mykiss), crabs (Neohelice granulata), zebrafish (Danio rerio), Pacific hagfish (Eptatretus stoutii), and mosquito larvae (Aedes aegypti) with a primary focus on discerning the mechanisms governing ion...
Chemical and biological monitoring of muskeg drainage at the Alsands project site. Volume 1: Review of available data on the Muskeg RiverDownload
The available literature on the Muskeg River and its tributaries was critically reviewed as a background for monitoring' studies conducted on the river in 1980. The review indicated that the literature provides a basic description of the ecology of selected streams within the Muskeg River basin....
Chemical and biological monitoring of muskeg drainage at the Alsands project site. Volume II: Monitoring and fish studiesDownload
Volume I of this report reviewed the publicly available literature on stream environments in the Muskeg River basin as background to the monitoring studies. This volume (Volume II) describes the results of the studies, discusses their effectiveness, and makes suggestions about the design of...
Many autecological effects of temperature on fish are known, and fishery biologists have begun to incorporate this knowledge into population-level relations that can be used to assess possible effects of climatic warming on fishes and their habitats. However, the problem of extrapolating these or...
Mosasaurs (family Mosasauridae) are a diverse group of secondarily aquatic lizards that radiated into marine environments during the Late Cretaceous (98–65 million years ago). For the most part, they have been considered to be simple anguilliform swimmers – i.e., their propulsive force was...
Crucian carp (Carassius carassius) is often the only fish species present in small ponds of northern Europe. Such populations are typically at high densities and consist primarily of small, relatively slender, and short-lived fish; populations in multispecies assemblages in lakes display opposite...
