    Growth of riparian cottonwoods along regulated rivers can be limited by water availability. In this study we associate seasonal variation of environmental conditions and stream flows with water relations of a natural ...
  • Robinson, Michael D.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2007Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Studies, 2007)
    This thesis addresses the issue of hybridization between native westslope cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii lewisi) and introduced rainbow trout (O. mykiss), giving strong consideration to their differing glacial ...
  • Crowe, Michael; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2003Faculty of Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2003)
    The role of interspecific competition as a regulating force in natural populations has been controversial, especially for phytophagous insect communities. A series of manipulative experiments using enclosure cages were ...
  • Carney, Vanessa A.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2003Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2003)
    There has been little documentation of the success of introduced agents for classical weed biological control. Field evaluation of an insect's establishment, spread and early host impact within its new environment must be ...
  • Andrus, Wonnita; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological, c2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biology, 2010)
    Eighteen prairie rattlesnakes (Crotalus viridis viridis) were tracked using radio-telemetry and 82 snakes were PIT-tagged over a 2-year period in Lethbridge, AB to determine population size, movement patterns, and habitat ...
  • Schleppe, Jason L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2002Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2002)
    The population dynamics and life histories of two larval parasites of fathead minnows were investigated, together with their effects on host reproduction in natural populations. In two lakes in northern Alberta, Canada, ...
  • Hawkins, Laurie; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, 1999Education, 1999)
    Within the span of less than a decade, Russian teachers have lived through the collapse of the Soviet Union, the end of Communist rule, the emergence of a free market economy and levels of inflation which have pushed much ...
  • Sessford, Karus David (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Kinesiology, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology, 2011)
    The effect of anxiety on motor learning during a balance relevant task was investigated. Twenty participants (mean age 22.0 ± 2.7 years) were randomly divided into groups that completed the task whilst standing directly ...
  • Franz, Simone; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, c2009Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2009)
    Livestock grazing in riparian habitats alters the vegetation structure, which has a detrimental effect on wildlife. This study examined the effect of cattle grazing in riparian habitats on winter bird biodiversity, small ...
  • Xie, Jeanne Yan (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2013Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2013)
    This study sought to determine whether the DG, CA3, and CA1 regions contain uniformly excitable populations and test the hypothesis that rapid addition of new, more excitable, granule cells in prepubescence results in a ...
  • Paterson, Lyn J.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2000Arts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2000)
    Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is produced in the rumen by isomerization of linoleic acid and has been shown to be anticarcinogenic. The objective of this study was to determine the effects of feeding dietary CLA to ...
  • Purvis, Carillon Ruth Cameron; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, 1987Education, 1987)
    Although the movement of women into the Canadian labor force has been increasingly steady over the past three decades, the number of women occupying positions of power, prestige and leadership within their fields remains ...
  • Filkowski, Jody; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Biological Sciences, 2004Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2004)
    Resistance (R) genes, a key factor in determining the resistance of plants, have been shown often to be highly allelic entities existing in duplicated regions of the genome. This characteristic suggests that R-gene acquisition ...
  • Himmler, Brett T; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, 2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2011)
    The influence of play behavior on the brain was investigated through plasticity and metaplasticity methodology. Regions in both cortical and sub-cortical areas were investigated. Animals in both studies either experienced ...
