The goals of this research project are:
1. To fill the information gap on Bathurst caribou summer range conditions using satellite remote sensing data and community-based ground vegetation monitoring
2. To develop a cumulative impact assessment method that makes cumulative impact assessment possible even if data are incomplete and provides timely feedback for guiding the refinement of monitoring...

Year one of Periodic Monitoring under the Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) to determine if mine effluent is affecting fish and fish habitat.
A small-bodied fish survey will be conducted within one exposure area (Jackfish Bay, Great Slave Lake) and one reference area (Horseshoe Island Bay). For consistency between phases, ninespine stickleback (NNST) will be targeted as one of the small ...

The objective of this research is to develop, using an ecology based approach, scientifically rigorous guidelines for impact assessment and monitoring of caribou for the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board and Nunavut Impact Review Board (the Boards).
This is being done so that the information collected by proponents allows for more reliable differentiation between natural varia...

The northern subspecies of Dolly Varden char is represented by only five populations in Canada. Of these populations, the Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden has been least studied. In the late 1990s, the presence of this fish was confirmed by the Gwich’in Renewable Resource Board and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Data collected through studies conducted by these organizations showed that at le...
