    Bull trout are a species of fish native to the coldwater mountain streams of Alberta. Because this species is of special conservation concern and displays finely dissected population structure, it is well suited as a ...
  • Masuda, Jason Douglas; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2002Arts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2002)
    The synthesis and characterization of two new bulky N,P-monophosphaamidines (also known as C-aminophosphaalkenes) are described. These phosphorus analogues to amidines are shown to exhibit isomerism and tautomerism in ...
  • Wojtowicz, Bernadine (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Health Sciences, c2012Health Sciences, 2012)
    The purpose of this study is to gain a richer understanding of the experiences of moral distress for nursing students within the context of psychiatric-mental health clinical placements, examine strategies students use ...
