Climate change is expected to drive major changes in agricultural production around the world, but estimates of the economic impact of these changes for Canadian agricultural production have been inconsistent. Most models use aggregate temperature data such as average temperature or growing...
A real options-net present value approach to assessing land use change: A case study of afforestation in CanadaDownload
Geographically explicit land use change models based on net present value have been criticized for not reflecting the breadth of economic considerations relevant to private land use decisions. An alternative approach is to econometrically estimate land allocations from historical transactions,...
Land use and land use change strongly influence the carbon (C) dynamics within ecosystems. This study quantified four aspects of land use and land use change effects: 1) ecosystem C stocks and distribution; 2) soil respiration; 3) soil C mineralization; and 4) net ecosystem productivity. Land use...
Direct and indirect drivers of plant diversity responses to climate and clipping across northern temperate grasslandDownload
It is well known that climate can influence plant community assembly via a multitude of indirect and direct pathways. However, interpretations of plant diversity responses to simulated climate change experiments, and subsequent predictions of plant communities under future climate scenarios,...
An interview based survey of farm landowners in the south east corner of Saskatchewan was undertaken to evaluate the provision of wildlife habitat by agriculture. Producers were asked to provide management information regarding a piece of their land that was managed as a unit. Within the past ten...
Factors driving range expansion of white-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus, in the boreal forest of northern Alberta, CanadaDownload
A large suite of species, across numerous taxa, are expanding their geographic ranges, with potential impacts on species, communities and ecosystems. This has increased interest in understanding the mechanisms driving range change and anticipating future changes in species’ distributions....
For decades now, there have been grave warnings about the alarming rates of tree and shrub destruction in the tropics. These warnings stressed the disastrous consequences of deforestation and predicted imminent fuelwood deficits across the African continent. However, the reality has been somewhat...
