Evaluating trade-offs: the effects of foraging, biting flies, and footing on wood bison (Bison bison athabascae) habitat useDownload
Understanding the distribution of forage is important in predicting the distribution, habitat use (behaviour), movements, and fitness-related traits of large, grazing ungulates. Although this bottom-up perspective provides a foundation for understanding habitat supply and thus nutrition, foraging...
Habitat use by the wood frog (Lithobates sylvaticus (LeConte, 1825)) within pothole wetlands modified by beaver (Castor canadensis Kuhl, 1820) in east-central AlbertaDownload
Studies of amphibian habitat use often focus on using landscape characteristics to predict occupancy at broad spatial scales, but few have investigated how amphibians use specific habitat features within a wetland, such as the distinct habitat features created by beavers. In pothole wetlands of...
Influence of forestry and conspecific attraction on habitat use and reproductive activity of the Canada warbler (Cardellina canadensis) in the western boreal forest: Implications for critical habitat identificationDownload
Recovery strategies for species at risk are legally mandated in Canada and the Government of Canada must identify which habitat is important for a species and which activities result in its destruction. The Canada Warbler (Cardellina canadensis) has been designated as a threatened species in...
Postbreeding movement patterns and multiscale habitat use of adult wood frogs (Lithobates sylvaticus) at urban wetlands of Edmonton, Alberta.Download
Many studies have focused on the effects of urbanization on amphibian species richness, abundance and diversity, but few studies have quantified the effect on amphibian movement behaviour or habitat use. At 11 urban wetlands in Edmonton, Alberta, I examined the postbreeding movement behaviour and...
Use of Bioacoustic Technology to Evaluate Habitat Use and Road Effects on Two Anuran Amphibians in the Boreal Region of Northeastern AlbertaDownload
Habitat loss and fragmentation are thought to be leading causes behind local to global amphibian declines. Recent expansion of the energy sector in the western boreal forest of northeastern Alberta raises concerns for amphibians that occupy this landscape. Methods for monitoring anuran amphibians...
