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...


Ecological Assessment Field Work for Lue Túé Sulái (the Five Fish Lakes) Candidate Cultural Conservation Area
Principal Investigator: Haas, Claudia A
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: This project is to fill gaps in ecological information on a Candidate Protected Area while it makes its way through the NWT Protected Areas Strategy (PAS) process. This information will be used by the working group to make recommendations on final boundary and management planning for the area. The study will be done at the same time as a study on mercury in fish being conducted by the Dehcho F...


Sensitivities of high-latitude lakes to climatic & development disturbances
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: Climate change in the Canadian Arctic is expected to have far-reaching impacts on the hydrology and ecology of freshwater ecosystems. These systems are particularly sensitive to climate change because many cryospheric and hydrologic processes respond to relatively small in changes in climate, which in turn affect landscape biogeochemical processes and associated ecological responses. Hence, the pu...


Environmental study of the aquatic resources of the Thonokeid Lake area
Principal Investigator: Couture, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers of Rescan have been contracted by B.H.P. Minerals Canada Ltd. to conduct an assessment of the types of fish and other aquatic organisms that are found in the Thonokeid Lake area. Tissue samples will be collected in order to assess heavy metal contaminants in fish. An environmental report will be submitted to the Territorial Government on the results of this study....
