Cretacous and Younger Fossil Fauna from the area along the Peel River, N.W.T., Canada
Principal Investigator: Durham, J. Wyatt
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1990
Summary: The researchers will collect specimens of fossil molluscs exposed in critical areas. This involves simply breaking rocks loose from their location. No excavation deeper than 1 foot is contemplated. Localities will be marked on topographic maps and measurements of sections exposed in river banks will be made. Analysis will be completed in California. Significant specimens will be returned to t...


Silurian and Devonian Faunas - Arctic Canada.
Principal Investigator: Johnston, Paul A.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1991
Summary: The research team will search parts of Cornwallis and Ellesmere Islands for fossils of ancient sea and land creatures that lived more than 400 million years ago. Of special interest are remains of eurypterids (sea scorpions), giant armoured fishes, jawless fishes, molluscs and early land animals. The fossils will be used for new exhibits and educational programs at the Royal Tyrrell Museum and t...


Ecology of high arctic marine molluscs
Principal Investigator: Aitken, Alec
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The researcher will collect samples of small organisms that live on the sea bottom in the Canon and Slidre Fiords of Ellesmere Island. These creatures include small worms, shrimp, starfish, clams and snails. Measurements will be collected on water temperature and the amounts of salt and oxygen in the water. These data will help to relate the distribution of species with the characteristics of ...


Man's Impact on a Marine Ecosystem
Principal Investigator: Reimer, K.J.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The Researchers will collect sediments, algae and molluscs from the waters of Cambridge Bay. Three locations will be sampled: an area receiving drainage from the radar site, an area similarly affected by the hamlet and a reference site located away from the influence of both. Samples will be evaluated in terms of occurance, population and distribution. They will be analyzed for substances arising ...


Comparison of Tissue and Plasma Fatty Acid Composition from Temperate and Arctic Marine Organisms
Principal Investigator: Glemet, Helene
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher will collect blood/hemolymph and tissues from representative Arctic marine fish, echinoderm, crustacean and mollusc species. The fish will be netted and the invertebrates dredged. Samples will be analyzed for their fatty acid composition. A sample size of 6-8 individuals will be required from each species....


Canada '88-Terra di Ellesmere
Principal Investigator: Giardini, Franco
Licenced Year(s): 1988
Summary: To study distribution and adaptive features of aquatic molluscs of the extreme Canadian Arctic; to determine variations of intraocular pressure in relation to normal circadian rhythmns and physical fatigue; to collect mosses and lichens for the University of Turin...

Licence #4024
Principal Investigator: Aitken, Alec
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: (1) to investigate the nature of arctic bivalve growth; (2) to identify possible latitudinal trends in arctic bivalve morphology; and (3) to assess the role of sea ice as a factor influencing arctic bivalve morphology and growth....
