For 40 years, the Biological Survey of Canada (BSC) has encouraged and organised studies of the arthropod fauna of Canada, through the wide involvement of the scientific community and the leadership of an expert steering committee. The benefits of the BSC to science include the completion of major cooperative projects to acquire and synthesise knowledge (documenting faunas in the Yukon, Canadian grasslands, and other significant regions and habitats), the assembly and organisation of information and specimens, and improved communication among entomologists. Its efforts have led to valuable monographs, scientific briefs, newsletters, and other products summarised here, including documents that are also useful to...

Development, Assessment and Application of Benthic Algal Biomonitoring Protocols for Canadian Waters
Responsibility for water is divided between the federal, provincial and territorial governments in Canada, and each government has pursued its own path. The resulting water policy landscape is highly fragmented. Issues exist that may warrant regional or national policy coordination. Examples relate to climate change adaptation, water exports and ecosystem protection, to name a few. Previous efforts to coordinate water policy in Canada have largely resulted in failure. This appears to leave Canada in a trailing position relative to numerous countries around the world that have pursued a more coordinated approach to water policy. Paradoxically, however, the failure of previous water policy coordination efforts creates...
