Cost-effective Conservation Planning for Species at Risk in Saskatchewan’s Milk River Watershed: The Efficiency Gains of a Multi-species ApproachDownload
The federal Species at Risk Act requires economic analyses to be included in species at risk recovery plans. Recovery plans are often completed species by species and their economic analyses fail to employ modern analytical methods. A unique multi-species at risk recovery plan within...
Influence of forestry and conspecific attraction on habitat use and reproductive activity of the Canada warbler (Cardellina canadensis) in the western boreal forest: Implications for critical habitat identificationDownload
Recovery strategies for species at risk are legally mandated in Canada and the Government of Canada must identify which habitat is important for a species and which activities result in its destruction. The Canada Warbler (Cardellina canadensis) has been designated as a threatened species in...
Investigating fine-scale movement patterns and comparative swimming performance of the newly identified and threatened Rocky Mountain Sculpin (Cottus sp.) across its Canadian distributionDownload
Cumulative anthropogenic impacts to the riverscape, including hydrologic alteration, have contributed to an escalated number of freshwater fish species at risk in North America. Species dispersal is an important mechanism underlying many ecological processes. Understanding the scale at which...
This study tested the hypothesis that the most common gear type used to sample fishes in wadeable systems, electrofishing, was more effective than another commonly used gear type, seining, for sampling fish species at risk. Five predictions were tested. At sites where species at risk were...
Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) populations are threatened across Canada. Recovery plans are being implemented to address conservation priorities using the best available knowledge. I used animal location data to evaluate sampling requirements for estimating caribou population...
Woodland caribou population declines in west-central Alberta precipitated a wolfcontrol. This program to protect caribou could be compromised if (1) there are strong public pressures against helicopter gunning and strychnine poisoning of wolves and/or (2) other predators compensate to kill...
