  • Hargreaves, A.L.; Bailey, S.F.; Laird, Robert A. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesQueen's UniversityAarhus UniversityUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016-06-14)
    Dispersal ability will largely determine whether species track their climatic niches during climate change, a process especially important for populations at contracting (low-­latitude/low-­elevatio ...
  • Adams, Rachael V.; Burg, Theresa M. (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2015)
    Habitat loss and fragmentation can affect the persistence of populations by reducing connectivity and restricting the ability of individuals to disperse across landscapes. Dispersal corridors promote population connectivity ...

    Both morphological and genetic evidence support a hybridization event between a Boreal Chickadee (Poecile hudsonicus) and a Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) in Atlantic Canada. Plumage of the hybrid was ...
  • Pulgararín-R, Paulo C.; Burg, Theresa M. (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2012)
    The glacial cycles of the Pleistocene have been recognized as important, large-scale historical processes that strongly influenced the demographic patterns and genetic structure of many species. Here we present evidence ...
  • Krishnan, Preethi; Ghosh, Sunita; Wang, Bo; Heyns, Mieke; Li, Dongping; Mackey, John R.; Kovalchuk, Olga; Damaraju, Sambasivarao (Nature Publishing GroupArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of AlbertaCross Cancer InstituteUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016)
    Transfer RNAs (tRNAs, key molecules in protein synthesis) have not been investigated as potential prognostic markers in breast cancer (BC), despite early findings of their dysregulation and diagnostic potential. We aim ...
  • Babenko, Olena; Golubov, Andrey; Ilnytskyy, Yaroslav; Kovalchuk, Igor; Metz, Gerlinde A. S. (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesCanadian Centre for Behavioural NeuroscienceUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Calgary, 2012)
    Stress represents a critical influence on motor system function and has been shown to impair movement performance. We hypothesized that stress-induced motor impairments are due to brain-specific changes in miRNA and ...
  • Kovalchuk, Igor; Walz, Paul; Thomas, James; Kovalchuk, Olga (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2013)
    Bacterial infection has been linked to carcinogenesis, however, there is lack of knowledge of molecular mechanisms that associate infection with the development of cancer. We analyzed possible effects of the consumption ...
  • Swift, Lucy H.; Golsteyn, Roy (M D P I A GArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    When a human cell detects damaged DNA, it initiates the DNA damage response (DDR) that permits it to repair the damage and avoid transmitting it to daughter cells. Despite this response, changes to the genome occur and ...
  • Hauer, F. Richard; Locke, Harvey; Dreitz, Victoria J.; Hebblewhite, Mark; Lowe, Winsor H.; Muhfield, Clint C.; Nelson, Cara R.; Proctor, Michael F.; Rood, Stewart B. (American Association for the Advancement of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of MontanaUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016)
    Gravel-bed river floodplains in mountain landscapes disproportionately concentrate diverse habitats, nutrient cycling, productivity of biota, and species interactions. Although stream ecologists know that river channel ...
  • Adams, Rachael V.; Lazerte, Stefanie E.; Burg, Theresa M. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Northern British Columbia, 2016-08-08)
    Variation in landscape features influence individual dispersal and as a result can affect both gene flow and genetic variation within and between populations. The landscape of British Columbia, Canada, is already highly ...
  • Zucchi, Fabiola C. R.; Yao, Youli; Ilnytskyy, Yaroslav; Robbins, Jerrah C.; Soltanpour, Nasrin; Kovalchuk, Igor; Kovalchuk, Olga; Metz, Gerlinde A. S. (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Mato Grosso State, 2014)
    Prenatal stress (PS) represents a critical variable affecting lifetime health trajectories, metabolic and vascular functions. Beneficial experiences may attenuate the effects of PS and its programming of health outcomes ...
  • Dohms, Kimberly M.; Burg, Theresa M. (Peer J, LtdArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    The Eurasian or spotted nutcracker (Nucifraga caryocatactes) is a widespread resident corvid found throughout the Palearctic fromCentral Europe to Japan. Characterized by periodic bouts of irruptive dispersal in search ...
  • Couture, Patrice; Pyle, Gregory (Taylor & FrancisArts and ScienceDepartment of BiologyUniversity of LethbridgeUniversite du QuebecNipissing University, 2008)
    This review summarizes some of the main findings of our work with the Metals in the Environment Research Network examining seasonal and regional effects on metal accumulation, growth, condition, and physiology in wild ...
  • Alexander, Trevor W.; Yanke, Jay L.; Reuter, Tim; Topp, Ed; Read, Ronald R.; Selinger, L. Brent; McAllister, Tim A. (Biomed Central LtdArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of VermontLethbridge Research CentreAgriculture and Agri-Food Research Centre (Ont.)University of CalgaryUniversity of Lethbridge, 2011)
    Background: Environmental transmission of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria and resistance gene determinants originating from livestock is affected by their persistence in agricultural-related matrices. This study investigated ...

(Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Mato Grosso StateUniversity of AlbertaUniversity of Calgary, 2013)
    The gestational state is a period of particular vulnerability to diseases that affect maternal and fetal health. Stress during gestation may represent a powerful influence on maternal mental health and offspring brain ...
  • Dohms, Kimberly M.; Burg, Theresa M. (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2013)
    The genetic impact of barriers and Pleistocene glaciations on high latitude resident species has not been widely investigated. The Clark’s nutcracker is an endemic North American corvid closely associated with ...
  • Barks, Patrick M.; Laird, Robert A. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016-06-15)
    Classic theories on the evolution of senescence make the simplifying assumption that all offspring are of equal quality, so that demographic senescence only manifests through declining rates of survival or fecundity. ...
