The objective of this annual monitoring program is to obtain and determine annual variability of the following information in the study area:
•the relative abundance, distribution, group composition and behavior of caribou;
•the relative activity of grizzly bears;
•the relative activity of wolverines;
•the presence and production of wolves; and,
•the presence and production of falcons nesti...

The Canadian Global Change Transect (CGCT) is a project of the Canadian Facility for Ecoinformatics Research at the University of Ottawa. The goal of the project is to assess and predict the effects of historical and future global changes on the spatial distribution of Canadian butterfly species through time. One of the key aspects of the CGCT to develop historical range calibrated models is the c...

Butterflies are easily studied and can provide valuable information of changes occuring in northern ecosystems - including climate changes, and habitat changes. Many areas of the NWT have few studies on insects; therefore, this inventory work can inprove the baseline information of these species.
The main investigator will travel with other NWT biologists to remote study sites and near comm...

The capture and processing of fishes, including biological data collection, sample analysis, and recording of field data are the responsibility of BHP based on DFO approved methods described herein. The Project Biologist will be at site during crew training, to participate in the collection of data and to ensure the quality of data. The Project Biologist will also be responsible for collating an...

The objective of this study is two fold: a) to collect slimy sculpin tissue samples for baseline metal analysis; b) to monitor seasonal lake trout habitat utilization in Lac de Gras using radio telemetry methodologies. Twenty-five Slimy sculpins will be collected using baited minnow traps and opportunistic underwater netting, using professional SCUBA divers if available. Samples will be sent to ap...
