Salmo River Harlequin Duck Inventory, Monitoring and Brood Habitat Assessment
Pre-incubation and brood inventories for harlequin ducks (Histrionicus histrionicus) in the Salmo River Valley from May to August of 2000. There were 5 objectives for this project... <MORE>

The Conservation of Hardwoods and Associated Wildlife in the CBFWCP Area in SouthEastern British Columbia
Aspen, birch and black cottonwood are an important component of the forest environment in the Columbia Basin, both as pure stands interspersed through the landscape and as individual or small groups of trees within coniferous forests.... <MORE>

Columbia Basin Biodiversity Atlas Project- Phase One Final Report
The Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program has embarked on an ambitious project to lead in the development of a Columbia Basin Biodiversity Atlas (CBB Atlas). This report documents the results of a scoping exercise commissioned by the CBFWCP to assess the need for and capacity to develop the CBB Atlas and provides recommendations for implementing the development of the CBB Atlas.... <MORE>

"In Pellets We Prosper": Twenty Year White-tailed Deer Study...
Lizards and Skinks "Moving Around" in Southeastern BC
White-tailed deer habitat use has been poorly studied in western North America, and most studies have been of relatively short duration. Here we report on white-tailed deer winter habitat use and selection in the Pend d'Oreille valley in the West Kootenay, using a 20-year data set of pellet group transects....<MORE>

Reptiles have different requirements for different activities that may not be satisfied by a single location. Suitable habitat may not only be limiting, it may be fragmented, making it difficult for animals to move between sites. Northern Alligator Lizards and Western Skinks are two species that may face this challenge.... <MORE>

Farming Lichen in Northern BC
Camp Creek Kokanee Spawning Study
Concern about the dependence of mountain caribou on economically important older Western Red Cedar and Hemlock forests for arboreal lichen in Britsh Columbia initiated the LaForme creek lichen enhancement project. The aim was to determine if girdling selected trees in second growth stands increased the quantity of arboreal lichen and lichen litterfall.... <MORE>

Camp Creek is considered to be the most important kokanee spawning tributary in the Canoe Reach of Kinbasket Reservoir. A clear, low gradient stream with high species diversity for the area... The objectives of this project are: to monitor kokanee escapement numbers in Camp Creek, provide long term population trend data, and contribute to more complete information on Kinbasket Reservoir kokanee populations.... <MORE>

Rainbow Trout Not Hot on Warm Slocan Waters
Humans Dig EK Badgers into Big Hole
The Slocan River might be a nice place for Rainbow trout to visit, but the warmer water temperatures make most of the river not a healthy place to live. A warmer than average river, Slocan River temperatures can reach 24.4 C - too close for comfort to the upper lethal temperature of 24-28 C for the trout.... <MORE>

Left to their own devices, these four-legged digging machines are adept at surviving food shortages and cold temperatures. But loss of habitat, roadkill, human intolerance and accidental trapping have helped cause this East Kootenay badger population to become an endangered species.... <MORE>

My, What Sharp Teeth You Have...
Those Dammed Kootenay Lake Fish
You have to think like the cunning and secretive devil-bear to catch one. Just ask Sr. Wildlife Biologist John Krebs who has trapped, tagged and released over 40 adult and juvenile wolverines over the last five years. But when you're handling a predator with jaws and teeth that can crush moose bones... <MORE>

In 1992, scientists were faced with a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't crisis. Dams were found to affect the food chain including kokanee stocks. But the only option, experimental fertilizing, might increase mysid shrimp numbers instead. But doing nothing could be the end of the kokanee. The outcome is quite a fish story... <MORE>
