Forest landscapes at the southern boreal forest transition zone are likely to undergo great alterations due to projected changes in regional climate. We projected changes in forest landscapes resulting from four climate scenarios (baseline, RCP 2.6, RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5), by simulating changes in tree growth and disturbances at the southern edge of Canada’s(More)
The factors that influence the actual initiation and duration of breastfeeding were studied among low-income women followed by the Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CPNP). A group of 196 pregnant women were selected at random from a sample of 6223 pregnant women who registered with the CPNP. Two 24-hour recalls and information regarding lifestyle habits,(More)
A study was undertaken to assess Envisat Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) ScanSAR data for quantifying forest growing stock volume (GSV) across three boreal regions with varying forest types, composition, and structure (Sweden, Central Siberia, and Québec). Estimates of GSV were obtained using hyper-temporal observations of the radar backscatter(More)
Age-related changes in the proteoglycans of costal, tracheal, nasal and xiphoid cartilages of sheep, starting at 100 days in utero to 1 year postnatally and in scapular cartilages up to 13 years of age, have been assessed. The amino acid compositions of the core proteins in the proteoglycans from one-year-old cartilages are indistinguishable on the basis of(More)
