Backyard Chicken Policy: Lessons from Vancouver, Seattle and Niagara Falls
The report “Backyard Chicken Policy: Lessons from Vancouver, Seattle and Niagara Falls”, explores the practice of urban agriculture in the cities of Vancouver, British Columbia; Seattle, Washington; and Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Limnology and paleolimnology of adjacent High Arctic lakes with an emphasis on terrestrial-aquatic linkages: Cape Bounty, Melville Island, Nunavut
Our knowledge of how Arctic freshwater ecosystems will respond to continued climate change and variability is fundamentally limited by logistical difficulties of such remote research, resulting in relatively sparse long-term ...
Geomorphic and Fluvial Response to Recent Permafrost Disturbances in a High Arctic River, Cape Bounty, Nunavut
Using a sediment budget approach, suspended sediment transport dynamics were studied over the 2010 summer runoff season in the 8 km2 West River catchment at the Cape Bounty Arctic Watershed Observatory (CBAWO), Melville ...
APPLICATIONS OF SHRUB DENDROCHRONOLOGY IN TRACKING DECADAL CHANGES IN POND MARGIN DYNAMICS
Decadal changes in the surface area of small ponds in the Kluane region, Yukon were quantified from remote sensing and dendrochronological techniques. Both dead and live shrubs from the genus Salix were sampled and cross-dated ...
HOME CARE UTILIZATION PATTERNS AMONG THE ELDERLY POPULATION:a Case Study of Ontario, Canada
The demand for home care increased dramatically in Canada in the past decade. This was because more patients were discharged from hospital, more emphasis was put on health care at the home and community levels, the continuing ...
Indigenous People and Québec Identity: Revelations from the 2007 Bouchard-Taylor Commission on Reasonable Accommodation
Many Indigenous leaders and public figures, as well as scholars of Indigenous culture and history, assert that non-Indigenous ignorance of Indigenous realities has systematically disadvantaged Indigenous peoples in Canada, ...
Modelling Biophysical Variables and Carbon Dioxide Exchange in Arctic Tundra Landscapes using High Spatial Resolution Remote Sensing Data
Vegetation community patterns and processes are indicators and integrators of climate. Recently, scientists have shown that climate change is most pronounced in circumpolar regions. Arctic ecosystems have traditionally ...
Magnitude and controls of microbial nitrate production in the streams and till of a glaciated alpine catchment, Canadian Rocky Mountains, Alberta
In the summer of 2010, fieldwork was conducted in the Robertson Valley, Canadian Rocky Mountains, Alberta to assess the magnitude and controls of microbial nitrification in proglacial till and in supraglacial, subglacial, ...
