This study investigated the effects of human land-use on grizzly bear (Ursus arctos L.) habitat and populations in the Kluane region of southwest Yukon, Canada. Previous studies in the region identify grizzlies as the species most at risk from cumulative impacts of human activity. The goals of this project were to: (1) identify the effects of cumulative human activities on grizzly habitat and populations; and (2) provide recommendations on human-use management with respect to the conservation of grizzlies and their habitat. Thus, I investigated three aspects of bear ecology and synthesized them to examine the influence of human-activities on bears. First, I examined the appropriateness of using Tasselled Cap Transformation...
This study involves the evaluation of cooperative wildlife management systems in place or proposed for the existing national parks and park reserves in the Canadian north, including Kluane, Nahanni, Auyuittuq, and Ellesmere Island National Park Reserves, and Ivvavik and Wood Buffalo National Parks. Aulavik, a park for which an establishment agreement has been reached, is also included. A set of attributes that move cooperative wildlife management systems within national parks towards success are compiled, and a hypothetical model prepared. The parks and reserves are evaluated for compliance with these attributes and model, following which recommendations are made as to how to move the system within which each park...

The settlement of land claim agreements between First Nation groups and the governments of Canada and the Yukon has ushered in a new era in land and resource management in the Yukon Territory. The Yukon First Nations Final Agreements are detailed documents that create a structure for shared responsibility, jurisdiction, and ownership over land and resources. This project examines the provisions of the Yukon First Nations Final Agreements in terms of their ability to promote sustainable development. The project undertakes four main tasks. Firstly, it explores the tricky and often overused term sustainable development and proposes a functional definition of its principles. Secondly, it identifies the provisions of...

Funding supports a multiyear initiative entitled Crown of the Continent Landscapes Analysis/Ecological Indicators Project. The work is designed to focus on issues on transboundary data integration and synthesis, habitatconnectivity analysis for grizzly bears (Ursus arctos) and other key wildlife species, and outreach programs aimed at disseminating knowledge, information products, and geospatial tools arising out of this work to the extensive network of Crown Managers Partnership (CMP) and GNLCC collaborators.FY2010Objectives:The monitoring strategy will focus on the development and acquisition of geospatial datasets from remote sensing and other GIS sources designed to track changes in habitats and human footprint...
