Assessing Spatial and Temporal Variation in Source Water Quality and Drinking Water Treatability Across a Gradient of Forest Harvest on Vancouver Island, BCDownload
On Canada’s Pacific Coast, forestry is integral to society. Although economically important, harvesting practices may alter source waters that originate in forested watersheds through changes in suspended solids (SS) and dissolved organic matter (DOM). Each of these metrics has the potential to...
Recently documented ice patch sites in the southwest Yukon are ideal for evaluating precontact hunter-gatherer land-use patterns in the western subarctic. Located in the alpine of the mountainous regions of the boreal forest, ice patches are associated with well preserved hunting equipment,...
This thesis explores the market efficiency in the US and Canadian corporate bond markets through examining the profitability and time variations of two widely studied asset pricing anomalies, i.e., the momentum effect and the return seasonality. The momentum effect refers to the abnormal gains...
Variation in the temporal pattern of vulnerability can provide important insights into predator-prey relationships and the evolution of antipredator behavior. We illustrate these points with a system that has coyotes (Canis latrans) as a predator and two species of congeneric deer (Odocoileus...
The critical domain size problem determines the size of the region of habitat needed to ensure population persistence. In this paper we address the critical domain size problem for seasonally fluctuating stream environments and determine how large a reach of suitable stream habitat is needed to...
Seasonal patterns of mortality for boreal caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in an intact environmentDownload
Seasonality is an important component in shaping the dynamics that influence ecosystems, including mortality. Animals experience temporal variation in vulnerability to mortality due to interactions among environmental conditions, nutritional condition, age and life stages, and changes in their...
The Spatiotemporal Occurrence and Recovery of Shiga Toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) in Well-sourced Drinking Water from Southern Alberta, CanadaDownload
Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) are important enteric pathogens that cause significant morbidity and mortality worldwide, as well as in Canada. Drinking water is a key exposure pathway for STEC infection and the occurrence of these pathogens in drinking water sources represents an...
