Occasional Publications on Northern Life
Bibliography of Reindeer/Caribou Disease InvestigatorsThe need to exchange information on research in reindeer and caribou diseases became apparent to investigators attending the Second International Reindeer/Caribou Symposium in Roros, Norway, in 1979. Initially, bibliographies were to be exchanged by being submitted to and subsequently distributed by workers at the University of Alaska. When the bibliographies were submitted, it seemed sensible to computerize the lists to facilitate searches for specific information in the future. An apparently simple task became amazingly complex. This is the resultant collection of publications by reindeer/caribou disease researchers. Because researchers in wildlife diseases tend to work on more than one species or topic, out of interest or necessity, a decision was made to include all of a person's references rather than to limit them to strictly reindeer/caribou diseases. The authors hope this will provide a good basis for exchange of information among all those interested in reindeer/caribou diseases.
Muskox BibliographyThis bibliography is intended to be a comprehensive reference source on muskoxen that will serve the biological researcher, the historian, and the person interested in the economic potential and current status of the muskox. It includes books, periodicals, and newspapers, and ranges from technical to popular coverage. The only systematic exclusions were fiction and juvenile books. Those references which are available at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, are marked with an asterisk (*) in front of the title.
A SELECTED ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF SOURCES ON REINDEER HERDING IN ALASKAThis bibliography was prepared while the author was a research associate with the Institute of Arctic Biology, University of Alaska, Fairbanks. The research project under which this bibliography was prepared was funded jointly by the National Park Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service through a research contract to IAB. The opinions and annotations expressed herein are those of the author. They do not necessarily reflect the policies of either of these two agencies, the University of Alaska or the opinions of their personnel.
The Impact of Oil Resource Development on Northern Plant CommunitiesInstitute of Arctic Biology, University of Alaska Fairbanks, 1972-08-17Research efforts have yielded valuable data and insights about adaptive mechanisms for survival in cold-dominated environments and also will contribute to practical solutions to some of Alaska's pressing environmental problems. By gathering these projects together in one place, it is hoped that these proceedings will provide both a good summary of the progress as well as pinpoint the critical problem areas that demand further study.
