Wildlife S&T Publications

Peer-reviewed Work

Wildlife and landscape researchers contribute to many areas of scientific study and are recognized as experts, often at continental or global levels, in their respective fields. Their contributions to science have led to recognition of Environment Canada as a top national and international producer of environmental knowledge.

(Citations are updated quarterly in March, June, September and December.)

To access the peer-reviewed work and citations of a particular researcher or expertise, please visit the Wildlife Expert or Research pages.

Biological Test Method Series

Method development experts work with staff from regional, provincial, and private-sector laboratories to develop, validate and standardize toxicology test methods required for Environment Canada programs. Since 1990, 21 standardized toxicity test methods and six supporting guidance documents have been published and distributed to a national and international audience. Most of the published methods focus on the testing of:

  • industrial effluents
  • surface waters (freshwater and marine)
  • sediments (freshwater and marine)
  • soils

Ecological Monitoring Protocols

Working with its partners - formerly under the Ecological Monitoring and Assessment Network- Environment Canada endorses standard protocols and develops them in areas where either consolidation is required, or no work has been done. The development of protocols is done through consultation with scientists, researchers and experts.

Monitoring protocols allow for standardization in study design, sampling procedures, sample and data analysis, and reporting methods. This ensures that information gathered in Canada is useful for issues analysis and ecological understanding at the local, national and international scale.
