The Arctic in the Anthropocene: emerging research questions
Atikᶸ presents three volumes of the scientific work Fauna Boreali-Americana, written by John Richardson with contributions from William Swainson and the Reverend William Kriby.
These three works are true accounts of natural history in the pre-Darwinian era, each focusing on a specific taxon: quadrupeds, birds and insects.
They contain detailed observations of the anatomy, appearance, and behavior of boreal wildlife species, as well as additional information from Indigenous knowledge. You can learn about the many food uses of caribou by the Inuit, such as the stomach and its contents, which they call nerrooks...
Lab-O-Nord presents the microwave digestion system CEM MARS 5 affiliated with the common services laboratory located at INRS (Centre Eau Terre Environnement).
This device uses microwave energy and high pressure to bring solid samples into acidic solution. It permits the digestion, dissolution and hydrolysis of a wide variety of materials. It can also be used to extract organic compounds.
