    With global warming, forest fires may be increasing in frequency, and subsequently post-fire salvage logging may become more common. The ecophysiological impacts of this practice on tree saplings remain poorly understood. ...
  • Decker, Jeff C.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological SciencesArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2015)
    Addition of Se to systems impacted by Hg has been considered for a remediation strategy because there is evidence that Se interacts with Hg in aquatic organisms, decreasing the accumulation and toxicity of Hg. However the ...
