sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever in free-ranging moose (alces alces) in saskatchewan, canada.malignant catarrhal fever (mcf) is a sporadic disease of artiodactyls caused by several viruses in the gammaherpesvirinae. we report two cases of mcf in free-living moose (alces alces) from saskatchewan. one was a thin, dehydrated, adult male found recumbent in 2006. at necropsy, ulcers were found in the intestine, bladder, and corneas. microscopically, there was lymphocytic vasculitis and perivasculitis in many organs with infrequent fibrinoid necrosis. ovine herpes virus-2 (ohv-2) was identifi ...200919204352
phosphogypsum capping depth affects revegetation and hydrology in western canada.phosphogypsum (pg), a byproduct of phosphate fertilizer manufacturing, is commonly stacked and capped with soil at decommissioning. shallow (0, 8, 15, and 30 cm) and thick (46 and 91 cm) sandy loam caps on a pg stack near fort saskatchewan, alberta, canada, were studied in relation to vegetation establishment and hydrologic properties. plant response was evaluated over two growing seasons for redtop ( l.), slender wheatgrass ( (link) malte ex h.f. lewis), tufted hairgrass ( (l.) p. beauv.), and ...201121712581
