Resource Utilization and Competition Among High Arctic Hydroporus Species (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae)
Principal Investigator: DeBruyn, Adrian
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: 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....


Population Genetics Study of Northern Insect Populations
Principal Investigator: Schwert, Donald P.
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1992
Summary: The Scientists will collect insects, mostly Coleoptera (beetles). The specimens will be utilized for population genetics analyses of northern insect populations....


Fossil and Modern Coleopteran Ecology in Arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Morgan, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researchers will collect sediment samples. Insect fossils will be extracted and analysed. The insect communities recovered will provide an indication of the climatic conditions in the area at the time the sediments were deposited. The age of the sediments will be determined with radiocarbon or other dating methods....


Paleoecological and Geological Study of the Isortoq River and Flitaway Lake, Baffin Island; Collection of Arctic Coleoptera
Principal Investigator: Morgan, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and team will take samples of organic sediments and process them to remove insect and plant fossils. Identification of these fossils will provide the basis for a paleoenvironmental analysis by comparing the fossil organisms to modern ones....


Comparative biosystematics of "Dendroctonus punctatus" Lec. and "Dendroctonus micans" (Kug.)
Principal Investigator: Furniss, Malcolm
Licenced Year(s): 1988
Summary: to determine if these two spruce beetle species are distinct; to compare biology, host tree relationships, genetics, and anatomical features of these two species (one is Eurasian and one is North American)...


Ecology of Subarctic Ground Beetles of Palaeoenvironmental Significance in Northern Manitoba
Principal Investigator: Garry, Clarke E.
Licenced Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: to determine the macro and microhabitats of northern ground beetles of the open woodland and tundra-open woodland subdivisions within the treeline zone...


Licence #2687
Principal Investigator: Ball, George E.
Licenced Year(s): 1981
Summary: To undertake a continued study of the carabid beetle of the area as examples of preglacial insects....


Licence #2610
Principal Investigator: Morgan, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1980
Summary: To make collections of various types of insects, principally beetles (Coleoptera) and caddis flies (Trichoptera). The primary purpose of the exercise is to expand the reference collection of insects at Waterloo. Secondary to the exercise is a determination of the effect of recent glacial periods on these insects....

Principal Investigator: Roughley, R.E.
Licenced Year(s): 1979
Summary: 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....
