First Report of Cactodera estonica in Canada

1,363 bps, respectively, were deposited in Genbank with accession numbers MF774482 and MF774483. When blasted in to the NCBI database (August 2017), the ITS sequence was 99% similar to sequences of AF274417, a population of C. estonica from Belgium and of KX579922 from Turkey, and the D2/D3 sequence was 99% similar to sequences of HM560797 and HM560796, populations of C. estonica from China. This is the first reported case of this nematode species in Canada and the second for the western hemisphere

First Report of the Fig Cyst Nematode, Heterodera fici Kirjanova, on Fig Tree, Ficus carica, in Ontario, Canada

Although fig trees are a popular ornamental fruit tree in subtropical regions, some hardy species, such as Ficus carica, have been grown in the west coast of British Columbia and southern Ontario in Canada. The fig cyst nematode, Heterodera fici Kirjanova, is a pest on fig plants, and the heavy infestation can cause retarded growth and yellowing of leaves (Maqbool et al., 1987). In the spring of 2016, a sample of rhizosphere from a potted fig (F. carica) seedling was submitted to the

Time and effort may be better spent on other preventative work, such as more investment in access to pain management clinics and services (Larance et al., 2018). Generally, there is a major gap in knowledge about which drug policy changes in Australia, Canada and the UK may or may not work best, and researchers have called for greater understanding of their impact (National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction

Creative Sovereignties and Fiscal Relations

In 2019 I completed my Master of Arts degree at the Faculty of Native Studies, University of Alberta, exploring the topic of fiscal relations between Canada and Treaty 6 First Nations in Alberta: historically; contemporaneously; and what, optimistically, they might look like in the future. I am merely a ‘part-time’ academic, and my interest in this topic stems from my professional engagement with the contemporary realities of these fiscal relationships on a day-to-day basis as a bureaucrat

Molecular Characterization and Phylogeny of Ditylenchus weischeri from Cirsium arvense in the Prairie Provinces of Canada

Ditylenchus weischeri that parasitizes the weed Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop., 1772, (creeping thistle) was described in 2011 from Russia based on their morphology, ITS-RFLP analysis, and Hsp90 gene sequence of a few individuals and one field collection of the plant. More recently, we found C. arvense parasitized by D. weischeri in the Prairie Provinces of Canada. Plant host preference for D. weischeri was also distinct from D. dipsaci (Kühn) Filipjev, 1936. In the current study, a comprehensive

First report of a gastropod parasitic nematode Phasmarhabditis californica (Nematoda: Rhabditidae) in Alberta, Canada

that can complete its life cycle without a host; however infective stages can penetrate and infect slugs and snails. The larvae feed on the host and develop into adults, which are hermaphrodites and primarily oviparous (Maupas, 1900). The nematodes kill the host within 4 to 21 days and eventually produce a new generation (Glen and Wilson, 1997; Tan and Grewal, 2001). To date, no Phasmarhabditis species has been found in Canada, though a few species have been discovered in the United States

Integrative taxonomy, distribution, and host associations of Geocenamus brevidens and Quinisulcius capitatus from southern Alberta, Canada

The soil, climate, and well-developed irrigation system in the southern region of the province make Alberta one of the most productive places in Canada to grow potatoes, with 20.4% of the country’s total yield reported in 2019 (Statistics Canada, 2020). Alberta also hosts the world’s leading potato processors. Planted areas and crop yields in this province have been increasing steadily to meet the growing demand for potato products. However, disease incidence remains a major limiting factor in

Networks of Canadian Business Elites: Historical Corporate Interlock Networks circa 1912

The dataset presented in this paper offers a unique view into the relationships of business elites in Canada in the early part of the last century. Canadian business was marked by the existence of powerful families that occupied the boards of many corporations. Also present, but less common, were more widely held firms with more entrepreneurial owners. At that time, Canadians considered themselves very much a part of the British Empire. The major financial and business centers at the time were

Influences of nitrogen inputs on nematode populations under highbush blueberry

Highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) is an economically important crop in British Columbia (BC) and the Pacific Northwest of North America. In BC, over 12,000 ha of blueberry fields yielded an average of 76,750 tons of marketable fruit over the 2014 to 2015 period (Statistics Canada, 2019). Several groups of plant-parasitic nematodes have been found to be associated with highbush blueberry in the region, with Pratylenchus and Paratrichodorus nematodes being the most frequently found

An evaluation of design-based properties of different composite estimators

; for a complex setting like the CPS. We have not discussed this problem in this paper. Instead, we adapted the regression composite estimator used by Statistics Canada in the CPS setting. Unlike the estimated optimal estimators, the regression composite estimator does not require estimation of Σ and is less sensitive to the rotation group bias in our simulation study. Our study indicates that there is a great potential for regression composite estimation technique in improving estimation of
