A Coastal, Pan-Canadian Collection of Plants, Microalgae, and Marine Invertebrates for the Canadian Museum of Nature
Principal Investigator: Graham, Mark S
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The goal of this work is to assemble a representative collection of marine invertebrates, vascular plants, lichens, mosses, liverworts and aquatic, microscopic algae for research and educational purposes at the national museum (the Canadian Museum of Nature). Specimens will be used in ongoing research projects at the Canadian Museum of Nature, focused on the biodiversity of the vascular plant, lic...


Further Examination of the Bio- Magnification of Mercury within Fish Species of the Dehcho and Their Varying Levels Among Lakes
Principal Investigator: Swanson, Heidi
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine why fish mercury levels vary among lakes in the Dehcho region; 2) to identify best predictors of fish mercury levels; and, 3) to determine which fish have the lowest levels of mercury and highest levels of micro-nutrients and fatty acids. The methods for this project include two parts, first is the collection of food web data from eac...


Genetic Diversity in the Biota of Arctic Lakes
Principal Investigator: Hebert, Paul
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: Our research will involve the survey of zooplankton communities in lakes and ponds of the Mackenzie Delta area (Inuvialuit private lands). Samples will be collected by either wading in ponds or by towing at net behind a float equipped helicopter. Samples will be frozen in liquid nitrogen, and subsequently examined for genetic variation. Our work aims to establish the species diversity of zoopla...

Principal Investigator: Boileau, Marc G.
Licenced Year(s): 1988 1987 1986
Summary: To investigate the ecology and population genetics of crustacean zooplankton; to study the genetic diversity of the major species of copepods and their dispersal since deglaciation; to clarify the taxonomy and improve distribution records....
