EL462 & EL463 2013-2014 Biolophysical Baseline Study
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of the project is to identify the fish species present, and to gather population data on surveyed species, in waterbodies in the area of Husky’s proposed exploration activity. Four streams and four to seven small lakes are proposed to be assessed. The Cumulative Impact Monitoring Program recommended selecting 2-4 streams appropriate for collection of baseline information that can...


Ecological Structure of Northern Arthropods: Assessing community structure and biodiversity across an environmental gradient
Principal Investigator: Buddle, Chris
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: (1) To test how and to what degree the structure of arthropod communities changes between the northern boreal and sub-arctic zones. This will provide us with a contemporary geographic profile of species and group distributions as well as estimates of diversity. (2) To use molecular genetic techniques to aid in species identification and to help expl...


Biophysical Study-Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Komers, Petr
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: Eleven plant species of national significance are found in the Mackenzie Delta. Following a preliminary classification using satellite images, the presence or absence of these species within sample areas will be determined during field surveys. After field data are collected, a more refined landscape classification model will be produced. To refine and test this model, 30 sites per vegetation com...


Hybridization and genetic variation in arctic grasses: molecular, morphological and ecological evidence.
Principal Investigator: Gillespie, Lynn J.
Licenced Year(s): 1997 1995 1994
Summary: 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...


Environmental screening and review of a proposed marina
Principal Investigator: Hubert, Ben
Licenced Year(s): 1995
Summary: A standard sein net will be drawn through the shallows of two small bays proposed for marina development. Fish will be collected, preserved and identified....


Environmental Studies of the Aquatic Resources in the Prairie Creek Area.
Principal Investigator: Reed, Shawna
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: In project area creeks & streams, fish presence/absence and/ or densities will be obtained by electrofishing representative habitat & the setting of baited minnow traps. Each fish caught will be identified, measured, weighed & sexed, & condition will be noted. Furthermore, in order to assess background tissue metal levels, ten specimens of each species must be sacrificed in order to obtain the req...


Environmental Study of the Aquatic Resources of the Thonokeid Lake Area
Principal Investigator: Couture, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1994 1993
Summary: Rescan Environmental Services Ltd. will continue their study on the types of fish and other aquatic organisms found in the Thonokeid Lake area. Data on species type as well as their age, abundance and habitat will be collected. In addition, muscle and liver tissue of fish will be collected in order to assess for the presence of heavy metal contaminants. This study will be summarized in an envir...


Environmental study of the aquatic resources of the Lac de Gras area
Principal Investigator: Couture, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 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 Lac de Gras 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....


Environmental study of the aquatic resources in the Spyder Lake area
Principal Investigator: Couture, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 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 Spyder 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....


Distribution, systematics and genetic structure of western arctic zooplankton species
Principal Investigator: Hebert, Paul D.N.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: 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...
