The vegetation component of the 2002 baseline studies will focus on completion of the vegetation typing surveys. Initially, a reconnaissance flight will be required along the study corridor. This flight will be used to identify sites for detailed sampling. Sites will be selected to represent the major ecological land units. Where possible, sample sites will be grouped to reduce helicopter time....

The vegetation component of the 2002 baseline studies will focus on completion of the vegetation typing surveys. Initially, a reconnaissance flight will be required over Sahtu Private Lands along the study corridor. This flight will be used to identify sites for detailed sampling. Sites will be selected to represent the major ecological land units. Where possible, sample sites will be grouped to...

This project developed out of the community concern's about the effect that local contaminants may have on their health and well being. The objectives of the study are: to obtain baseline data on the level of metals in fish from lakes that are commonly used as traditional harvesting grounds; to deliver the results of the study to the community and address local contaminant concerns; to provide co...

The objective of the study is to identify both the current and future positive and negative impacts of nature-based tourism within the Delta. The study will be carried out through the Inuvik Research Centre. Tourists will be canvassed at drop-off points and surveys will be mailed out according to visitor listings. Visitor surveys will be left at camp grounds and hotels. The same procedure will occ...

The objective of the study is to assess the concentration of mercury in fish, water and sediment in Bluefish and Duncan Lakes; to provide information to the Yellowknives Dene First Nation to make decisions relating to the use of fish and water from these lakes; and to correlate traditional knowledge with scientific data. Bluefish & Duncan Lakes are about 50 km to the northeast of Yellowknife. Tr...

From May through August, the researcher will be conducting her research in Inuvik at the offices of the Gwich'in Renewable Resource Board. Work will primarily be focused toward representing traditional knowledge in a case-based reasoning software tool. All data used will be from the Gwich'in Renewable Resource Board files. No new data will be collected....

The purpose of this study is to understand how Inuvialuit traditional knowledge and hunting of marine mammals has influenced the way local and regional management strategies are built up. Secondly, the researcher will make a comparison with other forms of marine mammal harvesting in circumpolar regions. Such a comparison will make it easier to understand the nature of subsistence hunting in the n...
