Experimental eradication of an invasive exotic vine in the Trent University Nature Areas
The Nature Areas Committee at Trent University oversees the natural heritage of the campus, and is committed to including students in community-based research projects which involve scientific experimental design projects. The experiment described here on out deals wih restoration management of natural areas on the campus of Trent University and particularly focuses on introduced, non-native plants as a degrading force in these natural areas., Completed By: Kieran Pinder. --, Includes bibliographic references.
Experimental eradication of invasive plant species
Trent Nature Areas are community based recreational areas and members of the community have expressed a concern with the proliferation of Rhamnus cathartica, commonly known as the Common Buckthorn or alias European Buckthorn. To address this invasion problem, we evaluated three methods of eradication for their effectiveness: glyphosate herbicide [sic] cut and pull and cut and cover., Abstract -- Experimental eradication of invasive plant species -- Methods -- Results -- Disucussion -- Recommendations -- References -- Appendix -- Tables -- Figures., By Gail L. Crowell. --, Includes bibliographic references.
Invasion of the round goby (negobius melanostomus) in Great Lake tributaries
Invasive species are a continuing issue for Ontario, in both terrestrial and aquatic environments. The round goby is an example of this. This study focuses on the distribution of round gobies within Great Lake tributaries and the impact of barriers., Abstract -- Introduction -- Methods -- Results -- Discussion -- Conclusion -- References -- Appendix A -- Appendix B., by Bethany Waite. --, Includes: final research report; bibliography; appendices., Completed for: Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters; Supervising Professor: Michael Fox, Trent University; Trent Centre for Community-based education., Date of project submission: April 2008., Includes bibliographic references., ERSC 384H, Environmental Resource Science, Community-based research project.
