This paper reviews moose habitat selection and discusses the environmental factors which affect selection. Moose use open areas and lowlands extensively in spring and early summer in apparent response to snow melt and early green-up in such areas, and possibly to the greater protein content of...
Syncrude Canada Ltd., which has operated an oil sands extraction plant at Mildred Lake since 1978, has undertaken various environmental studies associated with the development since 1971. The purpose of the 1984 investigation, which involved a multi-disciplinary study team, was to characterize...
Oil sands companies are required to reclaim the land that has been disturbed during their operations to self-sustaining, locally common boreal forest. An important facet of the reclaimed landscape is support of locally-relevant wildlife communities. Wildlife communities are an important part of...
A workshop on aquatic systems was held 20 and 21 September 1978 in Edmonton, Alberta. Participants included members of Alberta Environment, Alberta Recreation, Parks and Wildlife, Fisheries and Environment Canada, and consultants conducting research for the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental...
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...
American black bears (Ursus americanus) and grizzly bears (U. arctos) have similar habitat requirements, relying on seasonally available grasses, forbs, fruiting shrubs and trees, and neonate ungulates. To avoid aggressive encounters with grizzly bears, black bears partition habitats spatially...
Escalating cancer rates and an increase in the complexity and duration of chemotherapy regimens have brought the issue of cancer treatment at home to the forefront. For the participants of this study, home chemotherapy was offered as a potential treatment choice. Ten patients who accepted were...
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...
Conserving cougars in a rural landscape: habitat requirements and local tolerance in west-central AlbertaDownload
Maintaining large carnivores in human-dominated landscapes poses a significant conservation challenge. Extirpation is common because of habitat loss or direct persecution. I studied cougar habitat selection and human perception of cougars in west-central Alberta to better understand...
Distribution, abundance and habitat associations of beavers, muskrats, mink and river otters in the AOSERP study area, Northeastern AlbertaDownload
A synthesis of the published literature on the habitat preferences of beavers, muskrats, mink and river otters is presented. Field studies conducted during the late autumn of 1978 included aerial surveys and track counts in snow. A total of 249 active beaver lodges were seen on 2550 km of...
