Admission Records Analysis For Size and Prior Injury, and Development of Streamlined Admissions Tool
By Nicole Simon, Date of Project Submission: April 2015., Completed for: Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre ; Supervising Professor: Sharon Beaucage-Johnson; Trent Community Research Centre, FRSC4890 - Community Based Research, The research conducted for the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre was completed with the purpose of understanding the dangers that the turtle population of Ontario faces. Spatial analysis was conducted on the 2016 intake records for the OTCC. This analysis was completed using ArcGIS 10.1 which allowed the construction of a number of maps to be completed. A literature review was conducted outlining the different methodologies used to assign turtles to age categories. Within the literature review other wildlife Centres were contacted to obtain information on how they perform age categorization. These methods were compared to the OTCC and it was discovered that the best method would be to track turtles from hatchling, but this is not always possible. Analysis of the intake records were then completed with the goal of determining size by species and prior injury data. The size by species analysis yielded numerous graphs depicting the average size by species as well as age, and sex. Unfortunately, there was not enough data available to make usable inferences on prior injury data. This information would be crucial for maintaining mitigation or even implementing it. A task of the project included developing a digital intake tool to allow for more consistent record keeping. The completion of the digital intake tool now includes a separate section for prior injury to allow for prior injury analysis to be conducted.

Climate study for grape growing in the Central Ontario Region
The purpose of this report is to document long term climate data from six weather stations in Central Ontario Region. This information was used to determine the number of frost free days, and the number of growing degree days. Calculating the number of days between the last frost and the first growing will assist in determining which grape varieties are suitable for which microclimate conditions., by Simon Shum. --, Includes: final research report, bibliography., Completed for: Larry Paterson at the Central Ontario Viticulture Association; Supervising Professor: Colin Taylor, Trent University; Trent Centre for Community-based education., Date of project submission: April 2004., Includes bibliographic references., GEOG 440, Research in Physical Geography, Community-based research project.

Monitoring the effects of acid pulse during spring thaw on the water systems of Haliburton Forest
The primary purpose of this project was to measure the extent of acid and polluting pulses during spring thaw in four lakes in the Haliburton Forest, each impacted differently. The secondary purpose of the project was to recommend a monitoring program because by using the collected and analyzed data predictions can be made of the effects of acid pulse on aquatic life and habitat., Introduction -- Methods -- Results -- Discussion -- Recommendations for monitoring -- References -- Appendix I: Location of lakes in the Haliburton Forest -- Appendix II: Volumes of the four study lakes -- Appendix III: Sampling sites for Clear, Macdonald, Havelock and Stocking -- Appendix IV: Raw data tables., by Charlotte Sharkey. --, Includes: final research report; bibliography., Completed for: Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve; Professor Tom Hutchinson, Trent University; Trent-Centre for Community-based education., Date of project completion: April 2001., CAST 381, Canadian Studies, Community-based research project.

health of Lake Kasshabog today and tomorrow
The Lake Kasshabog Residents Association (LKRA) would like to develop a tool, using a Geographic Information System (GIS), which would be accessible to certain members of the association. With this tool they would be able to describe the extent of damage that shoreline modifications, invasive plant species, fishing practices, etc. are causing to the lake. Using Microsoft Access, a database of field data has been created which has been attached to a digital map of the area. The tools provided with this application allow the user to manipulate the data into a visual representation and to see exactly what is happening to the ecology of Lake Kasshabog. It will be a useful aid for any study done on the lake, and for determining if the lake is improving over time., Executive summary -- Table of contents -- List of figures -- List of appendices -- 1.0 Introduction. 1.1 The client. 1.2 The problem. 1.3 Background information/study area. 1.4 Objectives -- 2.0 Methodology. 2.1 Importing and modifying the data. 2.2 Creating the themes. 2.3 Creating and linking the database. 2.4 Displaying the data in a 3D scene. 2.5 Graphic user interface (GUI) development -- 3.0 Project results -- 4.0 Discussion and conclusions. 4.1 Risk assessment. 4.2 Limitations of the project. 4.3 Potential improvements of the project., by Shawn Seawright. --, Includes: final research report., Completed for: Terry Rees at the Lake Kasshabog Residents' Association; Supervising Professor: Graham Cogley, Trent University; Trent Centre for Community-based education., Date of project submission: April 2003., GEOG 440, Research in Physical Geography, Community-based research project.
