Ecology of the Marine Copepod, "Limnocalanus", in Relation to Bowhead Feeding Sites along the Yukon Coast
Principal Investigator: Sekarak, Aaron
Licenced Year(s): 1988
Summary: Dr. Sekarak and his team will be collecting samples of plankton and ocean water from the Canadian Beaufort Sea coastline. These samples will be brought back to the Inuvik laboratory for analysis. At Shingle Point, the researchers will also be recording weather conditions and the temperature, clarity, and salt content of the ocean. They hope to use this information to find out more about importa...

Ecology and population genetics of freshwater invertebrates of the Arctic.
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....

To determine the productivity of the most important components of marine mammal food chains
Principal Investigator: Welch, Harold
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: To study productivity of marine mammal food chains in Barrow Strait; emphasis in 1988 to be on Arctic cod, clams and the pelagic amphipod, "Parathemisto"...

Studies on genetic diversity in freshwater invertebrates and lake trout, at a high arctic site.
Principal Investigator: Hebert, Paul D.N.
Licenced Year(s): 1987
Summary: To continue work on the genetics and ecology of arctic freshwater organisms during 1987. To assess the levels of genetic diversity in ostracode populations, distributional patterns of the dominant ostracodes, while supplementary studies will examine the ecology of ostracode crustaceans and turbellarian flatworms. In addition small samples (5-10 individuals)of Salvelinus namaycush will be obtaine...

Continuation of the research and fieldwork on Ellesmere and Banks Island of a biostratigraphic program on the marine fauna from the Eureka Sound Formation.
Principal Investigator: Zinsmeister, William J.
Licenced Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: To determine: (1) the composition of the marine invertebrate faunas of the Eureka Sound Formation; (2) the stratigraphic distribution of individual taxa so that a biostratigraphic zonation could be established; (3) the biogeographic relationships of the faunas of the Eureka Sound Formation with temporal faunas of the North Atlantic....

Licence #5047
Principal Investigator: Aitken, Alec
Licenced Year(s): 1985
Summary: Collecting fossil clams from raised marine deposits in the vicinity of the villages to aid our understanding of marine ecology at the end of the Wisconsin Ice Age....
