Varying food quality and its influence on spruce budworm growth, development, and fecundity
These studies assess how changing food quality influences spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), in terms of the performance characteristics of survival, development, growth, and fecundity. The components of ...
Factors that predict brook trout distribution, thermal habitat, and abundance in Northwestern Ontario streams
Predictive models were developed to improve the understanding of stream-resident brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) populations and habitat in northwestern Ontario, and to facilitate protection of stream-resident brook ...
Ubiquitin metabolism in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
This work characterizes parameters of ubiquitin metabolism in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii Dangeard growing under constant conditions and after an exposure to cold shock. Ratio of free and conjugated ubiquitin to total ...
Effects of copper, zinc and cadmium on the pigments and photosynthesis of black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P) seedlings
The purpose of this study was to quantify the effects of heavy metals on pigments and photosynthesis in four and a half month old black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.) seedlings. Photosynthetic pigment analysis by ...
Interference of aquatic plants associated with wild rice (Zizania palustril L.)
The objective of this thesis was to determine the interference potential of aquatic plants to wild rice (Zizania palustris L. ) through field and laboratory studies. Three companion papers describe the influence of ...
Detecting trends in walleye (Stizostedion v. vitreum, Mitchill) abundance using catch-effort data
Three methods of analyzing catch-effort data were investigated regarding their relationship to walleye abundance: mean CUE, Gini coefficient and the relative frequency of zero CUE (RFZ). Walleye recreational fishery ...
