This paper outlines an approach to natural resource management that incorporates multiple objectives for protected area management within a decision-making framework. Both regulators and other major stakeholders are directly incorporated into the approach to enhance decision-making processes. We call this approach trade-off analysis. The approach uses a(More)
Patchy wetlands are commonly found in the polar desert at localities where ample water supply is available during the thawed season. These wetlands can occur on a wide range of topography, and they support more luxuriant vegetation than their surrounding areas. Snowbank wetlands are characterized by a zonation of vegetation, with increasingly rich plant(More)
The incidence of human infections by the fungal pathogen Candida species has been increasing in recent years. Enolase is an essential protein in fungal metabolism. Sequence data is available for human and a number of medically important fungal species. An understanding of the structural and functional features of fungal enolases may provide the structural(More)
Evaluation of the water storage in several ponds near Creswell Bay, Somerset Island, Canada, an area experiencing a polar desert climate (cool, moist), served to reveal factors that are important in the sustainability of these freshwater ecosystems within a larger wetland complex. Our study focused on the hydrology of 12 ponds of different sizes in various(More)
The bacteriostatic action of 4-nitroquinoline-n-oxide (4-NQO) for Lactobacillus casei is substantially reversed by d-and l-cysteine, glutathione, and 2,2-dihydroxy-1,4-dithiolbutane (dithioerythritol). The action appears to involve a chemical reaction between carbon atom 4 of 4-NQO and nucleophilic centers, such as -SH groups, located on essential cell(More)
