Using Quantitative Fatty Acid Signature Analysis to Investigate Diet and Mercury in Porcupine Caribou
Principal Investigator: Chan, Laurie H. M.
Licensed Year(s): 2007
Summary: Lichens, cotton grass and willows will be collected in the NWT to be used in a study of caribou diet in comparison with quantitative fatty acid signature (QFASA) and mercury analyses. Fieldwork is being conducted in correlation with a caribou serum and adipose tissue sampling project. Mercury (Hg) is a global environmental contaminant that derives mostly from burning fossil fuels. The Porcupine...
