Genetic assessment of Inconnu (Stenodus leucichthys) in Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Tallman, Ross F
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective is to use Inconnu genetic samples to differentiate the inconnu populations residing in Great Slave Lake. If inconnu are philopatric (return to their natal spawning grounds) than each river should consist of a genetically distinct population. Methods include using gill nets to capture between 30 to 50 Inconnu per location (along Buffalo River, Buffalo Lake and Taltson River). Nets...

Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objective of this project is to support the wildlife management initiatives proposed by the Renewable Resource Councils (RRCs) in the Sahtú Region through the development of a robust research program that incorporates multiple sources of knowledge into a detailed understanding of caribou and moose populations. The objectives are to monitor caribou and moose health and understand populatio...

Landscape scale flooding in the Great Slave Lake Plain: Expansion of lakes, flooding of wetlands and implications for bison habitat and local land users (Traditional knowledge study component)
Principal Investigator: Wesche, Sonia D
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The over-arching objectives of the project are to draw together multiple sources of information to (1) examine the change in lake area in this eco region, (2) quantify the type and amount of habitat loss or modification; (3) investigate whether recent changes are part of a longer-term cycle and evaluate the causes of this change; (4) document local and traditional knowledge of physical and biologi...

Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Coop: Community Based Ecological Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Svoboda, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2017 2015 2013 2012 2011 2009 2008 2006
Summary: The Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Coop uses both local and scientific knowledge to monitor and assess changes in an area that covers the range of the Porcupine Caribou Herd and nearby coastal and marine areas. Interviews with local experts are conducted annually by community researchers. Observations about fish, berries, caribou, unusual animal sightings, weather conditions, and other as...

The biology and ecology of sympatric polymorphic lake trout, Salvelinus namaycush, in Great Bear Lake, NorthwestTerritories.
Principal Investigator: chavarie, Louise
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to document traditional and local knowledge of the existence and ecology (i.e., distribution, movement, habitat, diet and morphology) of different lake trout morphotypes in Great Bear Lake, NWT; 2) to gain better understanding of lake trout ecology by working with traditional knowledge, local knowledge, and scientific information; and 3) to make t...

Past and future fire dynamics: implications for central arctic caribou and dependent communities (Community based component)
Principal Investigator: Jacobsen, Petter F
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application No.1294. The research is part of the larger research project on the correlation between increased forest fires and decreasing caribou population in the Northwest Territories. The intent is to record TEK concerning environments rebounding from forest fires, the correlation between these areas and the caribou population,...

The Rangifer Anatomy Project: Linking community and scientific approaches to caribou structure and function
Principal Investigator: Brook, Ryan K
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The proposed research will develop and evaluate innovative tools and processes to help better understand caribou anatomy and facilitate caribou health. Specific objectives of this project are to: 1. Engage communities in the planning, data collection, interpretation, and integration of traditional knowledge into an anatomical atlas of caribou as a tool to facilitate monitoring the health of t...

Bioaccumulation of Perfluorinated Compounds in the Vegetation-Caribou-Wolf Food Chain - Traditional Knowledge

Impacts of Oil and Gas Activity on the Peoples in the Arctic Using a Multiple Securities Perspective
Principal Investigator: Elliott, Milissa A
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: This project seeks to identify and measure specific characteristics of plants to determine the current baseline conditions of the vegetation, collect grass samples to test for different species of fungi and integrate traditional knowledge of environmental systems with current biological sampling. Transects (a long straight line) will be measured out from the edge of a road to about 1 km away fr...
