The proposed project aims to: 1) update and expand important baseline information on Dall’s sheep, grizzly bears, and wolves, which will contribute to the revision of grizzly and Dall's sheep management plan; 2) understand the interactions between those species; 3) evaluate the effect of habitat features and climate on those interactions; and 4) document traditional knowledge about Dall's sheep, g...

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...
Principal Investigator:Aiken, Susan Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will continue her study on NWT grasses. She will collect living plants in order to conduct chemical analyses on the plant tissue. These tests will help to identify different species of grasses (especially those that look very similar) and also help to determine where these species originated from. In addition, the researcher has small experiments on grass being conducted by staff...
Principal Investigator:Crease, Teresa Licenced Year(s):
The researcher and her team will collect Daphnia pulex (water flea) samples and maintain them in culture to obtain sufficient material for genetic analysis....
Principal Investigator:Meier, Sharon Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will continue to study plant-insect relationships and factors which play determining roles in the lives of organisms inhabiting the Arctic environment....

Fish will be caught using both gill nets and fishing tackle. The Researcher will use the same collecting and sampling procedures that were used last year at Sarcpa, Lailor and Hall lakes. A maximun of 25 fish per species will be killed to obtain liver, kidney and muscle tissue to enable analyses. The fish bodies will be given to the local communities as before....
Principal Investigator:Legris, Andre Licenced Year(s):
Mr. Legris and his assistant will study the way in which habitat and nest sites are used by different species in a subarctic bird community. This will be done by examining the level of predation on nests of different species and how these same species use...
