    Presence of Humans in Forests - Kilometres of Roads

    Increases in population, urbanisation and the development of the road network have replaced large forested lands and have created pressures on the remaining forests (or woodlands). Three principal Canadian forested regions have been most affected by these events: the Windsor-Québec corridor, the...

    Groundwater Study: Turkey Lakes Watershed Study

    Groundwater wells were installed in the Turkey Lakes Watershed basin in the early 1980’s. These test wells were installed in eight sub-basins of the watershed and range in depth from 0.5 to 9.7 metres. They are located on a variety of terrain throughout. The water chemistry has been sampled at...
