In collaboration with the Eeyou Marine Region Wildlife Board (EMRWB), ArcticNet is organizing the 2014 Symposium on Science and Traditional Knowledge in the Eeyou Marine Region to be held in Montreal from 25 to 27 March 2014.
Full program (with abstracts)
The major goal of the symposium is to take stock of the state of scientific and traditional environmental knowledge in the Eeyou Marine Region (EMR) to help identify future research priorities within the framework of the Research Fund awarded to the EMRWB. The emphasis will be on the marine environment of James Bay and southeastern Hudson Bay.
The symposium will help gather knowledge and data relating to the following themes, without limitation:
- Overview of agreements on land claims between the Eeyou Istchee, Nunavik and Nunavut on the one hand and the Federal Government on the other.
- The physical and biological oceanography of James Bay and southeastern Hudson Bay.
- Paleo-climatic changes in the environment of the EMR.
- The effects of climate change on James Bay and southeastern Hudson Bay ecosystems.
- Patterns of seasonal migration of fish and marine mammals of the EMR.
- Traditional environmental knowledge of the ecosystems of the EMR.
- The use of the EMR and its resources.
