We examined spatiotemporal variation in the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of pristine streams that represent a range of conditions near Lac de Gras in the Barrenlands region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. Principal component analysis organized streams into four groups...
Enhancing productive capacity in the Canadian Arctic: Assessing the effectiveness of instream habitat structures in habitat compensationDownload
We examined the effectiveness of physical habitat structures (ramps, V-weirs, vanes, and groins) at increasing the productive capacity of a newly created 3.4-km artificial stream in the Barrenlands region of the Northwest Territories, Canada. We quantified changes in fish density and growth in...
The North American beaver (Castor canadensis) is a large semi-aquatic rodent that has played a central role in shaping the Canadian boreal landscape, and colonial Canadian history. Exploitation of North American beaver populations to supply the European hat industry spurred the westward...
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...
The drift paradox asks how stream-dwelling organisms can persist, without being washed out, when they are continuously subject to the unidirectional stream flow. To date, mathematical analyses of the stream paradox have investigated the interplay of growth, drift and flow needed for species...
