The biology and ecology of sympatric polymorphic lake trout, Salvelinus namaycush, in Great Bear Lake, NorthwestTerritories.
Principal Investigator: chavarie, Louise
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to document traditional and local knowledge of the existence and ecology (i.e., distribution, movement, habitat, diet and morphology) of different lake trout morphotypes in Great Bear Lake, NWT; 2) to gain better understanding of lake trout ecology by working with traditional knowledge, local knowledge, and scientific information; and 3) to make t...


A phylogenetic and phylogeographic study of predaceous diving beetles in the Nearctic with a focus on the tribe Agabini (Coleoptera, Dytiscidae, Colymbetinae).
Principal Investigator: Venables, Chandra
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1) establish evolutionary relationships of diving beetles in the Nearctic, in addition to identifying colonization routes for exemplars in the tribe Agabini; 2) assess genetic diversity of target species and among-population genetic mixing, and compare these data to historical data (where possible) with an aim at assessing latitudinal and historica...


Population Inventory of Hairy Rockcress (Braya pilosa): NWT’s rarest species of global importance
Principal Investigator: Carriere, Suzanne
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The focus of this study will be to determining the area of occupancy of the plant Hairy Rockcress (Braya pilosa) in the NWT, the habitat requirements of the species, to collect viable seeds for genetic studies and potential rescue of genetic material if extinction is imminent, and to estimate the rates of shore loss for each sub-population. Ground surveys will be conducted within walking or bo...


Phytoremediation Study on the CDN Forest et al Nota Creek C-17 Wellsite
Principal Investigator: Budziak, Jerry
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The objective of this study is to continue with phytoremediation planting on the Nota Creek C-17 well site. Additional plantings are necessary to determine the efficiency of the phytoremediation program and to further assess its viability as a remediation strategy for the well site. A backhoe will be mobilized to the site under frozen ground conditions. A portion of or all of the impacted soil ...


Baseline mercury levels in predatory fish in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Guthrie, Glen H
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: This study will provide current information about the health of some subsistence predatory fish in ten commonly used lakes by residents of the Sahtu Settlement Area (SSA). This investigation may help to identify alternative sources of fish from lakes not impacted to the degree as seen in Kelly Lake. A future, far more thorough study of mercury abundance and bio-magnification trends may also result...


The Genographic Project: Anthropological Genetic Analyses of Indigenous Human Populations of North America - South Slave and DehCho
Principal Investigator: Schurr, Theodore G
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: In this project, the ancestry and history of the Aboriginal populations of the NWT will be explored through the analysis of genetic diversity in these communities. Through this DNA analysis, the origin and diversity of these aboriginal people will be investigated and their relationship to other aboriginal peoples of Canada and Alaska will be assessed. Overall, this approach will generate new insi...

Bosworth Creek Aquatics and Fisheries Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Blaschuk, Katherine
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: WorleyParsons, on behalf of Imperial Oil, began a benthic invertebrate and fisheries assessment program for the portions of Bosworth Creek adjacent to the Imperial Oil operations in Norman Wells, NWT. The objective of the project is to characterize biophysical conditions in Bosworth Creek in the area surrounding the lower Bosworth Creek Bridge; both upstream and downstream from the location of a f...


Fort Good Hope baseline heavy metal accumulation in burbot (loshe) study.
Principal Investigator: Guthrie, Glen H
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: This study will provide baseline data for uranium levels and contribute data to an on-going Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) study that is investigating mercury levels in Fort Good Hope burbot (Loshe). Thirty fish representing three size/age classes will be collected by the Fort Good Hope (FGH) Renewable Resources Council (RRC). The samples will be sent to reputable laboratories that sp...
