Age effects on seed productivity in northern black spruce forests (Picea mariana)
Climate change is predicted to increase rates of fire activity in boreal forests. A shortened fire return interval may result in different outcomes of community structure in the northern boreal forest, since the age of a ...
Patterns of Duck Community Composition in the Prairie Pothole Region of Canada: Effects of Climate and Land Use
Shifts in the duck community composition in the Canadian Prairie Pothole Region (PPR) have been evident over the past 25 years for reasons that are not entirely clear. Several duck species have increased in abundance whereas ...
Ecological factors affecting midcontinent light goose recruitment
A full understanding of population dynamics requires knowledge about the relative contributions of both adult survival and recruitment to population growth rate. Avian life cycles consist of a number of reproductive stages ...
Relationships between plant productivity and soil conditions in alpine tundra of southern Yukon Territory, Canada
Climate change is predicted to significantly alter ecosystem functioning and species distributions across the globe. Arctic and alpine areas are experiencing a faster rate of temperature increase as compared to other ...
Ecological responses to altered fire frequency in treeline forests of the North Yukon, Canada
Climate change is expected to alter patterns of disturbance, which in turn may drive future ecosystem change. This interaction may be particularly important in sub-arctic regions due to rapid climate change and frequent ...
