Forest and Vernal Pool Quality: Evaluation for Potential Salamander Reintroduction
By Shantanu Dutt & Sarah Bencic, Completed for: Northumberland Land Trust; Supervising Professor: Tom Whillans; Trent Community Research Centre, This project was developed for the Northumberland Land Trust (NLT) to assess and determine the suitability of the Laurie Lawson Education Centre property in Cobourg; for possible salamander introduction. In the initial research for this project many experts and expert literature sources were consulted to develop methods of assessment and to layout our onsite research. From this research we established that there are many factors which might affect survival of salamanders in an established population, and that would affect the suitability of habitat for translocation of salamanders. The substantial number of vernal pools on the property was the main reason for the Northumberland Land Trust’s request for research and an assessment into the property’s suitability.

White oak (quercus alba) dispersal within "The Land Between" Central, Ontario
The Land Between (TLB) is one of Ontario's most unique landscapes. In this area of Central Ontario, the granite rock of the Canadian Shield meets the limestone rock of the St. Lawrence Lowlands. This area is known as an ecotone which has highly mixed patterns due to an overlap of representative elements from ecosystems at each extent. The project objectives are to locate the white oaks in this area; analyze the pattern distribution and determine dominant species., by: Rory Eckenswiller. --, Completed for: Leora Bermann at the Kawartha Heritage Conservancy; Supervisor: Colin Taylor, Trent University; Trent Centre for Community-based education., Date of project submission: April 2008., Includes references., GEOG 440, Geography, Research in Physical Geography.

Supporting Immigrant Entrepreneurs
By Brieanna Elliot, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: New Canadians Centre ; Supervising Professor: Heather Nicol; Trent Community Research Centre, GEOG4030 - Community Based Research, In partnership with the New Canadians Centre, located in Peterborough, the goal of this research is to find ways to assist immigrants with entrepreneurship which will in turn lead to growth of the economy of the City of Peterborough as a whole. As Canadians, we live in a highly multicultural society in which immigration is the norm. Many of the immigrants that immigrate to Canada choose Peterborough to call their new home. The New Canadians Centre works closely with immigrants in Peterborough to help their transition to the city go as smoothly as possible, while also drawing attention to programs and opportunities in Peterborough that will help with economic, health, along with social needs. Immigrants have established businesses in many cities within Canada, thereby contributing to Canada’s economy, society and culture. The City of Peterborough currently has the highest percentage of immigrant entrepreneurs in Canada; it is therefore especially important to focus on implementing programs in order to better assist new and potential immigrant entrepreneurs in Peterborough to help them to realize their full potential in the community. This research will focus specifically on immigrant entrepreneurship in the City of Peterborough, while drawing from identified best practices of programs and supports available for immigrant entrepreneurs in other communities.
