Tammerlane Baseline Studies
Principal Investigator: Hoos, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objective is to obtain sufficient baseline data to develop a lead and zinc mine adjacent to the old Pine Point property. The owl survey to identify species presence and breeding territories in the vicinity of the study area will include an evening broadcast-call program that will commence 0.5 hours after sundown to 0.5 hours before sunrise in April and May. This owl survey will target the Bor...

Birds of the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Salomons, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be based in Inuvik, and travel within the Municipality on foot, bicycle and by motor vehicle. While the majority of the Guide preparation will involve the completion of background research/literature reviews in libararies and on the internet, field studies will be carried out to document the bird species present locally. These species will be photographically documented; no ...

Banding program of the eastern arctic tall grass prairie population of Canada geese.
Principal Investigator: Caswell, F. Dale
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The researchers will be studying Canada geese which breed in the eastern arctic areas of Cape Dominion (on Baffin Island), the Boas River (on Southampton Island) and the McConnell River (on the west coast of Hudson Bay). Leg bands and neck collars will be placed on individual birds in order to assist US and Canadian biologists in determining migration routes and wintering grounds of the tall gras...

Banding of thick-billed murres at Akpatok Island, Ungava Bay
Principal Investigator: Chapdelaine, Gilles
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1987
Summary: The researchers will return to Akpatok Island in order to gather information on the biology of these seabirds. This study will increase knowledge on population size, the effects of the annual `turr' hunt in Newfoundland on this population, and where thick-billed murres overwinter in the south....

Characteristics of the spring waterfowl hunt in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Bromley, Robert G.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The researcher is interested in determining how many and what kinds of ducks, geese and swans are shot in the spring, as well as how many of the adult females harvested have eggs developing in them. This research has received a Wildlife Research Permit # WL 001432. A licence from the Science Institute is issued in order that the researcher can receive support from the Inuvik Research Centre....

The role of predation in nesting success of black brant and lesser snow geese
Principal Investigator: Armstrong, Terry
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: This ongoing study will involve observing glaucous gulls as they prey on nests of black brant and lesser snow geese. I will attempt to determine why the gulls seem to be more successful when attacking the nests of brant than those of snow geese. I will examine the feeding behaviour of the gulls and the defense behaviour of the geese. I will also examine the nesting success and clutch sizes of b...

Avifaunal Survey of the James Bay Islands
Principal Investigator: Tymstra, Robert
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: This long-term study documents the types of birds found on the major islands in James Bay. Sightings of mammals, amphibians and butterflies will also be recorded. Sampling methods include point counts, line transects and direct counts....

Nesting-bird habitat relationships on the Yukon Coastal Plain: A program to establish initial relationships and populations (April 1992 to March 1994)
Principal Investigator: Hawkings, James S.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The populations of nesting birds will be determined in a selected number of plots that represent the various tundra habitats on the Yukon Coastal Plain. The selected plots will be surveyed on foot during the spring (June) to identify the most important habitats for bird species nesting on the coastal plain. This project has been approved by the North Slope Wildlife Management Advisory Committee....

Distribution, abundance, productivity, survival and habitat of white-fronted geese, Canada geese, Pacific brant and tundra swans in the Inuvialuit Region.
Principal Investigator: Hines, Jim
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: Data on the distribution, abundance, survival/mortality, and productivity are essential for the sound management of wildlife populations but there is a critical lack of such information for white-fronted geese, Canada geese, Pacific brant and tundra swan populations from the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. Helicopter surveys, ground counts and banding/neck collaring will help to determine distribut...

Productivity of Marine Mammal Food Chains in the Northwest Passage
Principal Investigator: Welch, Harold
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The researcher and his team will continue their marine research at Resolute. They will continue their work on the trophic dynamics of the arctic marine food chain as it pertains to marine mammal and seabird production. The main goal is to obtain data on seasonal cycles of energy flow. The team will also be examining organochlorine and heavy metal contaminants in the marine system....
