Principal Investigator:Gillespie, Lynn J. Licenced Year(s):
We plan to collect living plants, 6-10 plants of each species from each collection site. In addition, several plants of each species will be pressed and dried as voucher specimens to be used to check the identification. Photographs of the plants and their habitats will be made in the field and will be used for both research and teaching purposes. Upon our return to Ottawa the plant material wil...

Zooplankton will be collected from lakes and ponds located along a transect between Paulatuk and Shingle Point (Yukon). The specimens that are collected will be identified according to species type and genetic analyses will be performed to determine what species are interbreeding to produce hybrid organisms. Knowledge about zooplankton is important as many organisms (such as fish) depend on thes...

The researchers will collect approximately 50 small fish per lake in an attempt to determine where and when hybrid offspring are selectively weeded out. The majority of fish caught will be fin-clipped and released. Any hybrids collected would be kept, as well as a representative sample of fish from each parent species....

1) To determine the extent of breeding ground interference and/or displacement between Lesser Snow Geese and Ross' Geese. 2) To determine proportions of hybrid Ross'Geese and Snow Geese in banded and shot Samples....
