Tracking Long-Term Holocene Climate Trends in Lake 239 (Experimental Lakes Area, NW Ontario) Using Diatoms, Pollen, and Charcoal
The boreal forest region of Canada is climatically sensitive and may be impacted by anthropogenic-induced climatic changes. The results of this multi-proxy paleolimnological study contribute detailed information on changes ...
The Effect of the Invasive Macroinvertebrate, Bythotrephes Longimanus, on the Growth of Cisco (Coregonus Artedii) in Ontario Shield Lakes
Bythotrephes longimanus is an invasive, macroinvertebrate from Eurasia that was introduced into the Great Lakes region in the mid 1980s. Bythotrephes introductions into lake ecosystems have resulted in substantial changes ...
Imaging Biologically-Based Clathrate Hydrate Inhibitors
The unscheduled formation of gas hydrate plugs in oil and gas pipelines, which can lead to serious mechanical and personnel damage, is a problematic issue in the petroleum industry. Traditionally, thermodynamic inhibitors ...
Bacterial low temperature survival, ice nucleation proteins and ice-associating polymers
Microorganisms have developed ways to preserve cellular functions under low temperature conditions using a variety of biochemical adaptations including the modification of ice formation. In order to conduct a limited survey ...
