Baseline pesticide data for semi-permanent wetlands in the aspen parkland of Alberta

Description

Semi-permanent wetlands in the Aspen Parkland eco-region are important habitat for migratory waterfowl and offer valuable habitat for pairing and brood rearing. A water quality study was conducted to establish pesticide baseline data for these wetlands. A second objective of this study was to evaluate, at a scoping level, the potential importance of atmospheric loading of pesticides to these wetlands. The literature documents the importance of overland runoff as a pathway of pesticide movement to surface waters, but increasing evidence also points to the importance of atmospheric deposition.
