Ecotoxicology is a highly interdisciplinary science that integrates knowledge basis of toxicology, ecology, and chemistry et al. to address complex environmental challenges related to contaminants and their effects on organisms, including humans.
The Nechako White Sturgeon are critically endangered and have been listed under Schedule 1 of the Federal Species at Risk Act. Having found evidence of a significant population decline, the Ministry of Environment initiated a recovery process for the population in 2000.

Cryptic species complexes are groups of isomorphic species whose members can usually be distinguished based on traits, such as behaviour, genetics or ecological traits. In Anopheles mosquitoes, these differences are important in terms of the ability to transmit pathogens such as Plasmodium spp., which cause malaria.
Senegal is the westernmost country of continental Africa. Like many sub-Saharan countries it faces a variety of challenges related to the natural environment and the livelihoods that depend on it. In Senegal's case, the country is facing important deforestation problems coupled with a six-fold increase in population since the 1960s. One significant driver of deforestation relates to wood and charcoal production for household cooking applications.

The polar deserts of Antarctica are weird places to study hydrology. The more precipitation we get, the less runoff occurs; the ephemeral streams are supplied by glacial melt, yet melt is rarely seen on the glaciers. And the windier it gets, the warmer the air gets, and less runoff occurs.
All of these odd phenomena occur because in summer the ice surfaces are on the cusp of melting and small changes in the energy balance cause big changes in the hydrology.
Over the last few years a large interdisciplinary effort to examine the cultural and natural history in the Hakai region has been initiated. Supported largely by the Hakai Beach Institute on Calvert Island and in partnership with the Heiltsuk and Wuikinuxv Nations, one aspect of the research involves delineating changes in late Pleistocene and Holocene landscapes, as well as human lifeways in this highly productive, resource rich area.
