Effects of crop rotation and genetically modified herbicide-tolerant corn on ground beetle diversity, community structure and activity densityDownload
Ground beetles (Coleoptera. Carabidae) were sampled in conventional and genetically modified herbicide-tolerant (GM HT) corn, Zea mays L. (Poaceae), planted under rotation with canola, Brassica L. (Brassicaceae), or continuously cropped corn to investigate the influence of corn variety and...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Final report of Phase I.Download
In February of 1973 a meeting of representatives from interested government agencies and industries was held in Edmonton in order to determine the need for research on the revegetation of disturbed areas in Alberta. As a result of this meeting a research project was set up to study the...
Hybrid poplar plantations have the potential to produce large amounts of biomass for the forest industry, but the young trees are sensitive to competition. This research attempted to quantify the influence of factors regulating competition in hybrid poplar plantations under four years old. The...
In 1981, a study was initiated near Princess, Alberta to evaluate single-lift pipeline construction impacts on Solonetzic mixed prairie rangeland. In August 1991, a further evaluation of the study sites was conducted to determine the longevity of the changes that took place on the 1981...
Ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) are important components of temperate agroecosystems, and contribute many ecological services including weed seed predation. Although their role as arthropod predators is well known, their contributions to weed biological control through seed predation and...
Weeds promote greater arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi benefit in organically managed spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivation systemDownload
Weeds appear to enhance soil microbial benefit in organic agricultuer. We examined effects of weed and microbial effects on spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) yield and quality under organic management systems. Canadian spring wheat cultivars were planted in weed-free and weedy treatments in...
