Understanding the role of aquatic plants in stormwater management pond performance in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
Stormwater Management Ponds (SMPs) are engineered to receive, store, and treat stormwater runoff before it enters receiving waters in urbanizing landscapes. While these systems are not considered natural, they are typically ...
Assessing the influence of geological and land-use gradients on zooplankton and phytoplankton biodiversity in the land between ecotone
The Land Between (TLB) is an ecotone in south-central Ontario that represents a transition from limestone-dominated bedrock to granite-dominated bedrock, creating notable calcium and land-use gradients across this unique ...
An investigation of land-use impacts on water quality and phytoplankton communities of the Vermilion River and major tributaries, Sudbury, Ontario, Canada
The Vermilion River and major tributaries (VRMT) receive numerous inputs from point and non-point sources along their continuum. In addition to these inputs from the surrounding landscape, a hydroelectric impoundment and ...
Characterizing Plankton communities in Lake Ontario coastal wetlands along an urban land-use gradient
This thesis presents the results of a study on the effect of habitat condition and water quality on plankton communities across an urban land-use gradient in the Lake Ontario coastal wetlands: Frenchman’s Bay, Lynde Marsh, ...
An investigation of land-use impacts on water quality and algal communities in the Nottawasaga River and low-order streams of the Nottawasaga Valley Watershed
The Nottawasaga Valley Watershed (NVW) is a large catchment south of Georgian Bay that drains a primarily agricultural region including one of the largest wetland complexes in Southern Ontario, the Minesing Wetlands (MW). ...
Spatial and temporal assessment of rural-urban land-use gradient effects on water quality and periphyton communities in tributaries of Durham Region, Ontario
This study examines the effects of longitudinal and local land-use gradients on water quality and periphyton within four watersheds representing varying rural-urban land-use types and intensities. Although numerous studies ...
