This proposal was prepared in response to Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program proposed Project No LS 7.1.1, which concerns small mammal research on their revegetation study areas. AOSERP is concerned about the potential disruption by rodents of reclamation efforts on the leases of...
Effects of Biochar, Fertilizer and Shelter Treatments on the Vegetation Development following Coal Mine ReclamationDownload
Poor quality cover soil, a lack of propagules, and availability of suitable microsites can be serious challenges in the re-vegetation success of surface mines. In my thesis research, I examined the response of total cover, species richness and community composition of colonizing vegetation on a...
Abstract: Recreational activities in alpine areas have been increasing in recent decades, creating the need to improve our understanding of the impacts of these activities and how they are best managed. We explored impacts of recreational trail use on dry alpine meadows in the northern Canadian...
Understanding factors affecting elemental carbon stocks on Alberta’s grasslands is of special importance with recent policy shifts focusing on climate change and carbon (C) emissions. A large part of Alberta is native prairie utilized by the beef industry. This study examined soil and vegetation...
Influence of Soil Cap Depth and Vegetation on Reclamation of Phosphogypsum Stacks in Fort Saskatchewan, AlbertaDownload
This study quantified environmental parameters to develop reclamation strategies for phosphogypsum stacks. Research was conducted on phosphogypsum stack experimental plots established in 2006 (6 soil cap depths, 5 vegetation treatments), and soil capped slopes seeded in 1998. Significant root...
Interannual variability in trophic status of shallow lakes on the boreal Plain: Is there a climate signal?Download
We explored relations between climate and trophic status of shallow lakes (lake area > 5 ha, mean depth < 3.2 m) located on the subhumid western Boreal Plain of Canada. Correlation and regression analyses were used to assess the association between indicators of climate and satellite-based...
Doctoral thesis. Documentation of the paleoecological history of the Onion Portage region and its paleoclimatic interpretation.
Doctoral thesis. Study of determine the cause of the pattern of Ledum groenlandicum in mires (peatlands). Field research centered primarily in two mire systems located in central Alberta. The influence of several major environmental variables on the plant's life cycle was studied.
Measured Concentrations of Metals and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Plants, Berries and Soil Located in the Oil Sands Region North of Fort McMurray, AlbertaDownload
The objective of this study is to measure and characterize concentrations of chemicals in plants, berries and soil predominantly located north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Methods included opportunistic sampling via collection of root vegetables, above ground vegetables, berries and soil and...
Monitoring Procedures for Wellsite, In-Situ Oil Sands and Coal Mine Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) – December 2014 UpdateDownload
The scope of the Monitoring Procedure for Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) project is to develop a geomatics-based monitoring system to support the Government of Alberta’s efforts for monitoring reclamation success. This software will support the decision making process to screen almost all oil...
