Genetic population structure of walleye (Sander vitreus) in northern Alberta and application to species managementDownload
Walleye (Sander vitreus) is an economically valuable freshwater fish throughout North America. In Alberta, pressure from sport fishing and commercial fishing make effective management and protection of this species crucial to its sustainability. Walleye from 12 Alberta lakes were genetically...
A Large Fire Database (LFDB), which includes information on fire location, start date, final size, cause, and suppression action, has been developed for all fires larger than 200 ha in area for Canada for the 1959-1997 period. The LFDB represents only 3.1% of the total number of Canadian fires...
BACKGROUND: Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone, leading to increased bone fragility and risk of fracture. PURPOSE: The purpose of this research was to examine clinical utilization patterns and use of osteoporosis medications, and their...
SSHRC IDG awarded 2016: Spending on experiential purchases, such as concerts or travel, has been shown to increase consumers' happiness and well-being, while spending on material items, such as shoes or jewellery, can subject consumers to stigma and loneliness. Overall, existing research suggests...
Biological invasions are a major and increasing agent of global biodiversity change. Theory and practice indicate that invasion risk can be diminished by reducing propagule pressure, or the quantity, quality, and frequency of introduced individuals. For aquatic invasions, the primary global...
We investigated vegetation responses in terms of canopy, ground-layer diversity, and ecological species groups using two restoration treatments at two degraded oak barren and savanna sites in central Wisconsin, USA. The two restoration models tested were (1) process-only, which reintroduced fire...
Sustaining the Recovery of Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) in the North Saskatchewan River of AlbertaDownload
Nearly all Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens) populations across North America have experienced losses to historic abundances estimated to be > 99%. This species is especially vulnerable to overharvest, habitat degradation, river fragmentation from dams, and is slow to recover due to life...
