The ecology and paleoecology of benthic macroinvertebrates in the Mackenzie Delta region
Principal Investigator: Quinlan, Roberto
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: This study will examine the effects of permafrost and flooding on the ecological structure of contrasting lakes in the Mackenzie River Delta. Patterned ground marked by ice-wedge polygons is formed by freezing and thawing of the soil, which forms cracks into which ice can spread and cause the soil to uplift. These processes have effects on the hydrology and water chemistry of adjacent aquatic envi...
