Legacy propagule banks of salvaged topsoils are excellent sources of plant propagules for reclamation of mine sites. However, prior studies show that less than 50% of species found in original propagule banks actually establish. We hypothesize that the expression of this legacy propagule bank is...
The use of peat applications and Carex aquatilis for peatland reclamation on post mined landscapes in northern Alberta, CanadaDownload
I investigated peatland reclamation factors in a wetland built on a former open-pit oil sands mine in northern Alberta, Canada. The primary research objectives were to investigate the persistence of peat placed in a newly constructed wetland, the survival and establishment of Carex aquatilis...
Oil sand extraction in Alberta, Canada is a multibillion dollar industry operating over 143 km(2) of open pit mining and 4600 km(2) of other bitumen strata in northern boreal forests. Oil production contributes to Canada-wide GDP, creates socio-cultural problems, provides energy exports and...
Tháıdene Yatı Hóneneltën (Ancestral Dene Language Pedagogies) — Dene Dedlıne Yatı Acquisition, Revitalization and ReclamationDownload
Dene Dedlıne Yatı is an ancient Dene language which has been minimally addressed by linguists outside of reference to /t/-dialect Dënesųłı̨né. Like most Indigenous Peoples on this continent, Dene Dedlıne face ongoing shifts impacting connection to lands and languages. This work prioritizes the...
Unsaturated Flow Model
The un-saturated flow sub-model is based on a previously developed infiltration-drainage model. This research improves the original model by adding capabilities of handling dynamic boundary conditions and inter-layer overflow mechanisms. Additional validation cases are conducted to build...
Use of an Acoustic Location System to Understand Songbird Response to Vegetation Regeneration on Reclaimed Wellsites in the Boreal Forest of AlbertaDownload
Limited information exists on the recovery of different ecosystem components following reclamation of oil and gas wellsites in the boreal forest of Alberta. Songbird response to wellsite reclamation efforts in the boreal forest was previously unexamined, despite the abundance of wellsites,...
This research determined if woody debris amendments facilitate land reclamation after oil sands mining. Specifically, it assessed if woody debris affects vegetation cover and richness, woody species survival and abundance, soil nutrients, temperature and water, microbial biomass carbon and...
Vegetation and soil water interactions on a tailings sand storage facility in the Athabasca oil sands region of Alberta Canada
Water availability and understory influence on tree growth in reclaimed forest ecosystems, Athabasca oil sands region, Alberta, CanadaDownload
Reclaimed forest ecosystems in the Athabasca oil sands region (AOSR) have limiting factors to growth that can result in poor tree performance, as indicated by stunted growth, foliar discolouration and needle dropping, and ultimately threaten reclamation success. Indicators of reclamation success...
