Wolverine (Gulo gulo) conservation and perceptions by local populations: Case studies in Quebec and the Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: BONAMY, MORGANE MB
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2014
Summary: This PhD project aims at studying the biogeography, the ecology, and the human-animal relationships of wolverines (Gulo gulo) across Canada in two study sites: NWT and Quebec. The collected biogeographical, ecological and ethno-biological data will provide a detailed knowledge of wolverines’ ecological and socio-cultural status across Canada, which is critical for the elaboration of future conserv...


Understanding and predicting the impacts of permafrost thaw on water resources and ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Quinton, William L.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2001
Summary: Understanding the integrated eco-hydrological behaviour of ecosystems in the context of thawing permafrost is a major challenge. To meet this, the research team will measure the present surface and near-surface water supplies and their inter-annual variability assuming a condition of no permafrost thaw. The team will also develop new knowledge on the eco-hydrology of the major ecosystems (i.e. bog...


SWEEP - The Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program
Principal Investigator: Bharadwaj, Lalita A
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: In collaboration with the Slave River and Delta Partnership (SRDP) and local communities, the research team will develop a Community Based Monitoring (CBM) program titled the Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program (SWEEP), to empower communities to collect, interpret and use a system of environmental indicators to address these priorities. The focus will be on indicators of cumulative effec...


Landscape scale flooding in the Great Slave Lake Plain
Principal Investigator: Armstrong, Terry
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objectives are to draw together multiple sources of information so that we may (1) examine change in lake area in this ecoregion, (2) assess amount of meadow habitat lost to rising water levels in core bison range, (3) investigate whether recent changes are part of a longer-term cycle and evaluate the causes of this change, (4) determine a way to document and integrate local and traditional kn...


Building capacity and documenting traditional knowledge on Species at Risk in the Gwich’in Settlement Area 2012- 2014
Principal Investigator: Benson, Kristi
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The proposed two-year traditional knowledge (TK) study focuses on gathering Gwich’in traditional knowledge of three species of special concern- wolverine, grizzly bear, and woodland caribou - northern mountain population. The TK studies will be led by a Gwich'in Species at Risk (SAR) TK Committee, which will direct the projects and allow information to flow from federal and territorial bodies to c...


Enbridge Pipelines (NW) Inc. Traditional Knowledge Study - Continuation
Principal Investigator: Heck, Darren M
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this project are: a) Inventory of historical and ecological resources in the area; b) past, present and future uses of the area by community residents; c) identification of potential impacts of use of the land use areas supporting access and maintenance (i.e. camps, trails, buffer areas and work areas); and d) provide follow-up mechanism for on-going communication of issues i...


ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into regio...


Assessing the potential for Environmental Sensitivity Index mapping in the Arctic using Synthetic Aperture Radar
Principal Investigator: Duffe, Jason A
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: (1) fly oblique helicopter videography along the Beaufort Sea shoreline from the Alaska/Yukon border to the Northwest Territories/Nunavut border; (2) using conventional methods, interpret helicopter videography and create an Environmental Sensitivity Index map. This will consist of a vector shapefile of shoreline types; and (3) using satellite ra...


Improving Habitat Connectivity to Enhance Productive Capacity of Arctic Freshwater Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Tonn, William
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) to study the freshwater ecology, hydrology, and hydraulics of small lakes and streams in the Lac de Gras basin before habitat modification; 2) to monitor the changes in ecosystem productive capacity resulting from habitat modifications designed to increase habitat connectivity and fish passage; and 3) to assess the effectiveness of such habitat modifications...


Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Coop: Community Based Ecological Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Svoboda, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2012 2011 2009 2008 2006
Summary: The Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Coop uses both local and scientific knowledge to monitor and assess changes in an area that covers the range of the Porcupine Caribou Herd and nearby coastal and marine areas. Interviews with local experts are conducted annually by community researchers. Observations about fish, berries, caribou, unusual animal sightings, weather conditions, and other as...
