Principal Investigator:Venables, Chandra Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this research project are to:
1) establish evolutionary relationships of diving beetles in the Nearctic, in addition to identifying colonization routes for exemplars in the tribe Agabini;
2) assess genetic diversity of target species and among-population genetic mixing, and compare these data to historical data (where possible) with an aim at assessing latitudinal and historica...

The researchers believe that the treeline zone is one of the most sensitive areas on earth to temperature changes, both natural and caused by global warming. They would like to take a small core (5 cm diameter) from the mud at the bottom of two small lakes close to Back Lake, northeast of Yellowknife. In the laboratory, they will analyze the cores for temperature-sensitive aquatic insect remains...

This study will be a comprehensive collecting programme that will provide baseline information about aquatic-insect composition along the Horton River. The survey will also provide baseline information about aquatic insect composition, which may be used to monitor changes in water quality over time. The survey will last 3 1/2 weeks as the research team travels by canoe along the Horton River. T...
Principal Investigator:DeBruyn, Adrian Licenced Year(s):
Hydroporus morio and H. Polaris (two species of small aquatic beetles) coexist as major predators in a series of shallow temporary ponds at Alexandra Fiord. This study will investigate the biology of predaceous insects in freshwater habitats in the high arctic....
Principal Investigator:Hankinson, Flt. LT. K.W. Licenced Year(s):
Multi-disciplinary research will be undertaken in botany, geology, micro meteorology, soil science, remote sensing, breeding biology of Arctic char and archaeological survey. These studies are a continuation of those begun in 1988....
Principal Investigator:Courtney, Gregory W. Licenced Year(s):
To determine what species of mountain midges (aquatic flies) inhabit the Richardson Mountains; describe any new species; determine the phylogentic and zoogeographic relationships of these species....
Principal Investigator:Barr, David W. Licenced Year(s):
To make a detailed study of aquatic mite and benthic invertebrates (small aquatic organisms) in the lakes, ponds and streams. Samples of all types will be collected for preservation in the museum's research collection....
Principal Investigator:Roughley, R.E. Licenced Year(s):
To collect specimens of the water bettle family Dytiscus for subsequent laboratory analysis and classification. Ground beetles of the family Carabidae will also be collected....
