Details Northern Yukon : an ecological land survey EPUB

Northern Canada, the vast, sparsely populated region of Canada affected by permafrost, encompasses about half (5 × 10 6 km 2) of the country and includes the Arctic and Subarctic zones and portions of the Boreal region, which is composed of the Northwest Territories, Nunavut (formerly the eastern portion of the Northwest Territories), the Yukon, and Cited by: 1.

Canada's boreal forest is a vast region comprising about one third of the circumpolar boreal forest that rings the Northern Hemisphere, mostly north of the 50th parallel. Other countries with boreal forest, include Russia, which contains the majority, the United States in its northern most state of Alaska, and the Scandinavian or Northern European countries (e.g.

Protected Areas in Northern Canada: Designing for Ecological Integrity ix Foreword The conservation of wildlife and of protected areas in northern Canada has been a matter of longstanding interest and concern. Early efforts to establish parks, wildlife reserves and sanctuaries were farsighted, drawing on the limited.

The Alaska Region represents a resource-rich, dynamic landscape shaped by volcanos, earthquakes, major rivers, and glaciers. Here, we conduct research to inform management of Alaska’s extensive natural resources, inform national Arctic energy policy, and provide scientific information to help others understand, respond to, and mitigate impacts from natural hazards.

This link between continents was estimated to be 2, kilometers wide. The growth of glaciers lowered sea levels and exposed portions of continental shelves which created this broad land bridge.

Parts of northern Alaska and Yukon remained ice-free during the last ice age and provided a haven for many animals and humans fleeing from colder on: P.O. Box Fairlawn Plaza PO, Ottawa, K2A 4E2, ON.

The Northern Bog Lemming can be distinguished from all other mice and voles in Montana by a combination of a very short tail (equal to or only slightly longer than the hind foot), broad shallow grooves on the outer surface of the upper incisors, and the deep reentrant angles on the outer side of the upper cheek teeth and the inner side of the lower cheek teeth (Foresman).

Geographic Range. Strix nebulosa resides in Alaska, Canada, the higher elevations of the Rocky Mountain States, northern Minnesota and northern Wisconsin.

Also, S. nebulosa breeds from northern Yukon to northern Manitoba and northern Ontario, south locally to central California, northern Idaho, northwestern Wyoming, central Saskatchewan, northern Minnesota, and south.

Thus, particular caution should be used when using the associations in assessments of smaller areas (e.g., evaluations of public land survey sections). Finally, although a species may be associated with a particular ecological system within its known geographic range, portions of that ecological system may occur outside of the species' known.

Ecological Land Classification (ELC) refers to the description of land resources at a range of spatial resolutions (i.e. global to local) and for a range of purposes or values. The emerging science of ELC is in fact a very carefully integrated blend of vegetation and earth sciences.

Tundra vegetation is composed of dwarf shrubs, sedges and grasses, mosses, and lichens. Scattered trees grow in some tundra regions. The ecotone (or ecological boundary region) between the tundra and the forest is known as the tree line or timberline.

The tundra soil is rich in nitrogen and e type: ET. In particular, we examine the idea that Alaska and northern Yukon, when joined to Siberia by the Bering land bridge, “constituted the eastern end of a huge grassland biome, unequaled today in size and character.” Herb-zone pollen spectra consist largely of.

Simultaneous increases in evaporation due to higher air temperatures, however, are expected to lead to drier conditions overall, with reduced soil moisture.4 In the future, therefore, model projections suggest a longer summer growing season combined with an increased likelihood of summer drought and wildfires.

High-latitude ([degrees][degrees] N) graminoid plant communities located near the northern limit of boreal forest occurrence in the Carmacks-Pelly Crossing area of Yukon were sampled and classified, and four sociations were recognized: Calamagrostis purpurascens (purple reedgrass), Hesperostipa comata (needle-and-thread .But it’s not all about food.

Time on the land is time spent connecting and reconnecting with friends and relatives, places, stories, and other values.

Protecting the ecology, history, archaeology and subsistence lifestyle of the U.S. Arctic is the reason parks were established in northern Alaska.1. Introduction. The attractiveness of mineral resources in the Arctic has increased and the region is seen as a vast storehouse of potential resources (Lindholt,Emmerson and Lahn,Boyd et al., ).The attractiveness reflects not just the geology, but also the availability and coverage of geodata, availability of professional workforce, level of infrastructure, and the Cited by: 2.
