A network of 56 permanent plots, radiating from the periphery of the Syncrude Lease, was established during the summer of 1976. This network will allow continuous quantitative monitoring of the lichen flora using photographic techniques. Since lichens are highly sensitive to air pollutants such...
Atmospheric emissions from oil sands plants are regulated by government. Both Syncrude Canada Ltd. and Suncor Inc. independently operate emission and air quality monitoring and reporting systems. The systems include air quality monitoring trailers and sulphation cylinder stations. In addition...
This document is a summary of a workshop held on 7-8 June 1979 at the Mayfield Inn, Edmonton, Alberta, in order to provide guidance to the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) concerning the establishment of a system to biologically monitor the effects of air pollution in the...
Development Of Shrub And Lichen-Dominated Biocrust Propagation And Establishment Techniques For Reclamation In Northern EnvironmentsDownload
Resource exploration and extraction in the arctic causes long lasting disturbances as natural recovery is a long and slow process in the north. With three Canadian diamond mines expected to close in the next fifteen years, many hectares of land will require revegetating. Research conducted in the...
Threatened woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) have experienced large range recessions and population declines across much of Canada’s boreal forest in the last century and have become a major focus of conservation efforts in the region. Habitat management strategies for woodland caribou...
Abstract: Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) populations in Jasper (JNP) and Banff National Parks (BNP) have declined since the 1970s, coincident with reduced fire activity in both parks, relative to historic levels. Some researchers have suggested that long periods without fire may...
A study was undertaken in 1975 to determine the scientific, technical and economic feasibility of establishing air pollution effect gradients using lichenological methods on a radially arranged pattern of observation sites. The data acquired from 12 lichen sample plots indicate that the flora is...
Widespread Infection of the Hair Lichen Genus Bryoria (Parmeliaceae) by a Previously Unknown Fungal PathogenDownload
Bryoria Brodo & D. Hawksw. (Parmeliaceae, Ascomycota) is one of the dominant genera of hair lichens in western North America and is characteristic of high elevation conifer forest ecosystems. In areas where Bryoria is abundant, it is common to find thalli in which the thalline filaments become...
