Effects of Experimental Sulfate Additions on Nutrient Cycling, Cyanobacterial Abundunce and Mercury Methylation Lake 227, Experimental Lakes Area

Effects of Experimental Sulfate Additions on Nutrient Cycling, Cyanobacterial Abundunce and Mercury Methylation Lake 227, Experimental Lakes Area

Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) The research aimed to assess the effect of sulphate levels on several impacts associated with excessive fertilization of lakes. The study was conducted in a remote, fishless lake in northwestern Ontario's Experimental Lakes Area. Sulphate was believed to play a key role in regulating various microbial processes in

Community-Based Monitoring of Ice-Breeding Seals and Polar Bear Feeding in the Gulf of Boothia

Community-Based Monitoring of Ice-Breeding Seals and Polar Bear Feeding in the Gulf of Boothia

The study investigated the health and ecology of seal populations in the Gulf of Boothia and collected information on seals to allow monitoring of the foraging habits of polar bears. A collaborative partnership with the community of Kugaaruk was done to carry out a community-based monitoring program to collect biological information and samples from seals
