  • 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 ...
  • Lait, Linda Amy; Lauff, Randolph F.; Burg, Theresa M. (Ottawa Field-Naturalists' ClubArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of LethbridgeSt. Francis Xavier UniversityMemorial University of Newfoundland, 2012)
    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 ...
  • 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. (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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Zucchi, Fabiola C. R.; Yao, Youli; Ward, Isaac D.; Ilnytskyy, Yaroslav; Olson, David M.; Benzies, Karen; Kovalchuk, Igor; Kovalchuk, Olga; Metz, Gerlinde A. S. (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. ...
  • Burg, Theresa M. (University of the AzoresDepartment of BiologyQueen's University, 2005)
    Briefly explains the importance of using genetics to study seabirds.
  • Byeon, Boseon; Kovalchuk, Igor (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016)
    The usefulness and the utility of the next generation sequencing (NGS) technology are based on the assumption that the DNA or cDNA cleavage required to generate short sequence reads is random. Several previous reports ...
  • Kovalchuk, Anna; Mychasiuk, Richelle; Muhammad, Arif; Hossain, Shakhawat; Ilnytskyy, Yaroslav; Ghose, Abhijit; Kirkby, Charles; Ghasroddashti, Esmaeel; Kolb, Bryan; Kovalchuk, Olga (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of LethbridgeAlberta Epigenetics NetworkUniversity of CalgaryAlberta Health ServicesCanadian Institute for Advanced Research, 2016)
    Irradiated cells can signal damage and distress to both close and distant neighbors that have not been directly exposed to the radiation (naïve bystanders). While studies have shown that such bystander effects occur in the ...
  • Bilichak, Andriy; Ilnytskyy, Yaroslav; Hollunder, Jens; Kovalchuk, Igor (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of LethbridgeGhent University, 2012)
    Plants are able to acclimate to new growth conditions on a relatively short time-scale. Recently, we showed that the progeny of plants exposed to various abiotic stresses exhibited changes in genome stability, methylation ...
  • Pyle, Gregory; Wood, Chris M. (Taylor & FrancisArts and ScienceDepartment of BiologyNipissing UniversityMcMaster UniversityUniversity of Lethbridge, 2008)
    Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) are often used to estimate important biotic ligand model (BLM) parameters, such as metal-binding affinity (log K) and capacity (Bmax). However, rainbow trout do not typically occupy ...
  • McPherson, Taryn D.; Mirza, Reehan S.; Pyle, Gregory (National Research Council of CanadaArts and ScienceDepartment of BiologyUniversity of LethbridgeNipissing UniversityConcordia University, 2004)
    Responses of wild fish populations to alarm chemicals were examined in clean and metal-contaminated lakes in northern Ontario. Approximately 20 groups of three minnow traps were placed randomly in the littoral zone of ...
