Biodiversity Monitoring

Dave Mossop
Professor Emeritus, Yukon Research Centre

This long-term program tracks populations and key ecosystems across the Yukon and maintains data bases on them. Field work primarily focuses on ‘focal’ and ‘keystone’ bird species but expands to all species in wetland systems. Yukon College student involvement is key, often involving research for academic credit. Changes over long periods of time are the most pressing interest; several declining species are being tracked with the objective of understanding their problems and hopefully, devising solutions.

Biodiversity Monitoring's projects are listed under biology in the category of natural science.
