Ecosystem Perceptions in Flood Prone Areas: A Typology and Its Relationship to Preferences for Governance
(MDPI AG, Basel, Switzerland, 2016)
A shift appears to be occurring in thinking about flooding, from a resistance-based approach to one of resilience. Accordingly, how stakeholders in flood-prone regions perceive the system and its governance are salient ...
Global Water Governance and Climate Change: Identifying Innovative Arrangements for Adaptive Transformation
(MDPI AG, Basel, Switzerland., 2018)
A convoluted network of different water governance systems exists around the world. Collectively, these systems provide insight into how to build sustainable regimes of water use and management. We argue that the challenge ...
Community forests Canada: Bridging practice, research and advocacy. A Symposium and Workshop Report.
The purpose of this report is to share experiences and observations from the Community Forests Canada joint workshop-symposium hosted by the Centre for Forest Interdisciplinary Research and Department of Environmental ...
Contemporary Water Governance: Navigating Crisis Response and Institutional Constraints through Pragmatism
(MDPI AG, Basel, Switzerland, 2016)
Water has often been the source of crises and their frequency will intensify due to climate change impacts. The Niagara River Watershed provides an ideal case to study water crises as it is an international transboundary ...
Are community forestry principles at work in Ontario’s County, Municipal, and Conservation Authority forests?
(The Forestry Chronicle, 2012)
Ontario’s County, Municipal and Conservation Authority forests have received little attention within the academic literature on community forestry in Canada. These “Agreement Forests”, as they were once called, are a product ...
Briefing Note: Community Forestry in Canada
(Centre for Forest Interdisciplinary Research, University of Winnipeg, 2016)
Global economic instability, the need for local adaptation to climate change impacts, and Supreme Court rulings over Aboriginal and Treaty Rights have drawn attention to community dissatisfaction with centralized approaches ...
Temperature and freezing effects on phosphorus release from soils to overlying floodwater under flooded-anaerobic conditions
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2020-03-30)
Increased phosphorus (P) availability under flooded, anaerobic conditions may accelerate P loss from soils to water bodies. Existing knowledge on P release to floodwater from flooded soils is limited to summer conditions ...
Gypsum Amendment Reduces Redox-Induced Phosphorous Release from Freshly Manured, Flooded Soils to Floodwater
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2019-01-01)
The effectiveness of gypsum in reducing runoff P losses from soils and the mechanisms responsible are well documented; however, gypsum amendment effects in reducing redox-induced P losses from flooded soils are less ...
Community Forests Canada: A New National Network
(The Forestry Chronicle, 2013)
Degree of Phosphorus Saturation as a Predictor of Redox-Induced Phosphorus Release from Flooded Soils to Floodwater
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2019-11-01)
Phosphorus (P) loss from soils is often enhanced under flooded, anaerobic conditions, increasing the risk of freshwater eutrophication. We aimed to develop a predictive tool to identify soils with greater P release potential ...
