Climate change implications for distribution, phenology and conservation of Olive-sided Flycatchers (Contopus cooperi) and Western Wood-Pewees (C. sordidulus) in northwestern North AmericaDownload
Northwestern North America is predicted to experience some of the world’s greatest human-caused climate change. Understanding the impacts of associated changes will be imperative to the conservation and management of northern-breeding birds. In particular, long distance migrants and aerial...
Effects of clear-cutting and wildfires on succession of ground beetle (Coleoptera: Carabidae) assemblages in western AlbertaDownload
I studied how carabid beetle assemblages in lodgepole pine stands have responded after clear- cut harvest and wildfires on an actively managed landscape ~20 km south of Hinton, Alberta. This work builds on and expands the focus of a previous study (Niemelä et al. 1993) conducted 23-24 years...
Evidence-based tool surpasses expert opinion in predicting probability of eradication of aquatic non-indigenous speciesDownload
The main objective of evidence-based management is to promote use of scientific data in the decision-making process of managers, with data either complementing or replacing expert knowledge. It is expected that this will increase the efficiency of environmental interventions. However, the...
Post-fire regeneration of endangered limber pine (Pinus flexilis) at the northern extent of its rangeDownload
Limber pine (Pinus flexilis), an ecologically important species of the montane and subalpine regions of western Canada and the United States, is endangered in Alberta. Limber pine is thought to regenerate following fire, due to its relationship with a bird, the Clark’s nutcracker (Nucifraga...
Visitors’ perceived impacts of interpretation on knowledge, attitudes, and behavioral intentions at Miquelon Lake Provincial Park, Alberta, Canada.Download
Interpretation in protected areas can help reach conservation goals and inspire a new generation of knowledgeable and dedicated park supporters. However, few research projects have examined this connection in a comprehensive manner. This 2011 study evaluated perceived knowledge, interest,...
What does a detection mean? Spatial and behavioural context improves the use of passive acoustic monitoring for the conservation of a wide-ranging birdDownload
The culture of ecology is shifting towards collaborative, integrative approaches that use ‘big data’ to solve big problems. Passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) has the potential to play a role in this new paradigm because it uses in-situ autonomous recording units (ARUs) to collect a permanent...
