The Back River (Dogrib: Thlewechodyeth, Inuktitut: Haningayok, or Great Fish River) is the 20th longest Canadian river and is located in the Northwest Territories and rises at an unnamed lake in the North Slave Region of the Northwest Territories and flows more than km ( mi) mostly through the Kivalliq Region, Nunavut, to its mouth at the Arctic Ocean in the Kitikmeot Region. Local knowledge to enhance wildlife population health surveillance: Conserving muskoxen and caribou in the Canadian Arctic (OIE, , Carlsson et al., ), only a few published studies use observations of resource users as a source of epidemiological data for disease detection (Madslien et al., , Chen et al., ), or to record. Péter's main project focused on the effects of climate change on Arctic host-parasite systems, including, for example, the protostrongylid Umingmakstrongylus pallikuukensis in muskoxen, the gastrointestinal parasite Ostertagia Gruehneri in caribou, and winter ticks on elk, deer and moose. Outside of the Arctic, he studied how habitat.   African Studies American Studies Ancient Near East and Egypt Art History Asian Studies Book History and Cartography Biblical Studies The presence of such a large, and possibly dangerous, species in a new habitat raises several moral and ecological questions and dilemmas. Large animals such as muskoxen, wolves, lynx, reindeer, and horses.

Edited by eminent ecologist Simon Levin, with contributions from an international team of leading ecologists, the book contains more than ninety clear, accurate, and up-to-date articles on the most important topics within seven major areas: autecology, population.

Description. Ptarmigans are hardy members of the grouse family that spend most of their lives on the ground at or above the treeline. Three species are present in North America: the Willow Ptarmigan Lagopus lagopus, the White-tailed Ptarmigan Lagopus leucurus, and the Rock Ptarmigan Lagopus mutus. Like other grouse, ptarmigans have chunky bodies, short tails and legs, and short, rounded . Introduction The Nunavut Wildlife Management Board (NWMB or Board) is an Institution of Public Government established in The NWMB was established in accordance with the Nunavut Agreement, which was ratified on The Board is the main instrument of wildlife management in the Nunavut Settlement Area (NSA) and is a co-management Board that consists of nine appointed . Caribou (Rangifer tarandus) and muskoxen (Ovibos moschatus) partition habitat use in the Arctic differently in relation to their morphological, physiological, and behavioral attributes. Adaptations to Arctic habitats by caribou result in an energy-costly lifestyle in contrast to the energy-conservative adaptations of muskoxen. In southern Africa, impala (Aepyceros melampus melampus) and blesbok. Our focus is the Thelon River and its caribou, muskoxen, wolves and rich bird life. fish habits and habitat.

This includes both sedentary and migratory populations. Rangifer herd size varies greatly in different geographic regions. Qausuittuq National Park (pronounced Qow-soo-ee-tooq, from Inuktitut meaning place where the sun does not rise) is a national park located on northwest Bathurst Island in Nunavut.

It was established on September 1,becoming Canada's 45th national park. This area was chosen to represent the Western High Arctic natural region, one of 39 such regions identified by Parks Canada. OCLC Number: Notes: Held May, University of Alaska, Fairbanks.

When they are threatened or disturbed, Muskox bunch together in a tight ring facing outwards protecting the young in the centre, a unique defense formation. Located miles from the Arctic Circle, the university's location allowed Barboza to analyze the ecology of arctic ungulates -- reindeer, caribou and muskoxen -- in their natural habitat.

The muskox (Ovibos moschatus) is a surviving species of the Pleistocene megafauna; it survived the ice age both in Beringia and south of the ice sheet in what is now southern Canada and the northern United has a very long adaptive history in arctic.

Climatic and Habitat Conditions Arctic weather sharply contrasts with weather in other parts of Alaska. Arctic wolf has keen sense of hearing, smell and eyesight, which are used for identification of potential prey.

Arctic wolf is a carnivore. Its diet is based on the Arctic fox, caribou, muskoxen, Arctic hare, lemming and seals. Arctic wolf has strong jaws filled with 42.

To determine whether polar bears are a threat to muskoxen, the researcher dressed as a polar bear. On Wrangel Island in the Arctic Ocean, the researcher approached the muskoxen herds on all fours.

arctic wolf facts - Basics. Average Weight: 32 to 70kg ( lbs) Average Length: to cm long ( feet). Breeding Pattern: As with other kinds of wolves, only the top ranking alpha and beta females in a pack will be allowed to mate and reproduce. This ensures that possibly scarce food resources at the critical time will not be spread too thinly across too many pups which could.

Assuming the survey was representative of what was happening elsewhere, he calculated that only about caribou and just muskoxen survived in the region's 30 islands. In more grisly terms, his findings meant that in 27, square kilometers (10, sq. mi.). Caribou, North America’s wild reindeer, have lives apart from their famous role on Christmas Eve.

To learn more about how these Arctic antler-bearers spend the other days of the year, we talked to USGS caribou expert Dr. Layne Adams, who has studied these animals for more than 35 years. Buy Böcke, Takine & Moschusochsen [Goats, Takins & Muskoxen] (): NHBS - Christian Matschei, Filander Verlag.

Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) are medium-sized ( kg) members of the deer family. The taxonomy (classification) and systematics (evolutionary history) of caribou in Canada are uncertain. Based on mitochondrial DNA, caribou in North America evolved from two founding groups (clades) that differentiated in isolation during the last (Wisconsinan) glaciation.

All global climate models forced with increasing greenhouse gases project that the Arctic will continue to warm at a faster rate than that of the rest of the globe, with concomitant losses in the ice and snow (IPCC, ) that form the fabric of the Arctic as we have known it ().In each of the sections that follow, we identify and discuss in detail emerging.
