Assessment of the Boloria chariclea complex
Principal Investigator: Leski, Michael L
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2011
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to collect B. chariclea arctica from sites in the Yukon and Northwest Territories. A network of haplotypes will be constructed, based on the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) gene, and a mismatch analysis will be performed to determine if genetic structure has been influenced by a sudden expansion in population size or long term stability. ...

Principal Investigator: Kerr, Jeremy T
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The Canadian Global Change Transect (CGCT) is a project of the Canadian Facility for Ecoinformatics Research at the University of Ottawa. The goal of the project is to assess and predict the effects of historical and future global changes on the spatial distribution of Canadian butterfly species through time. One of the key aspects of the CGCT to develop historical range calibrated models is the c...


Butterfly Inventory in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Layberry, Ross
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: Butterflies are easily studied and can provide valuable information of changes occuring in northern ecosystems - including climate changes, and habitat changes. Many areas of the NWT have few studies on insects; therefore, this inventory work can inprove the baseline information of these species. The main investigator will travel with other NWT biologists to remote study sites and near comm...
