Principal Investigator:Turnbull, Matthew S Licenced Year(s):
The goal of the principal investigator is to assess the diversity of species and functional traits of microarthropods in the Canadian arctic. The Canada Tundra Ecosystem Carbon Study (CTECS) was selected as a research site because there have been running temperature, moisture, and nutrient addition treatments since 2004 with the goal of simulating climate change and predicting its effects on plant...
Principal Investigator:Buddle, Chris Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this research project are:
(1) To test how and to what degree the structure of arthropod communities changes between the northern boreal and sub-arctic zones. This will provide us with a contemporary geographic profile of species and group distributions as well as estimates of diversity.
(2) To use molecular genetic techniques to aid in species identification and to help expl...

Arctic arthropod communities are extremely sensitive to changes in their physical environment and their composition reflects trace elements in the atmosphere or minor fluctuations in termperature. This project is part of a larger, long-term project involving a survey of arctic arthropods which will ultimately provide a monitoring system for global climatic changes and indicate levels of pollutants...
