Some Ordovician lingulid brachiopods from Ontario and Quebec by G. Winston Sinclair( )

1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"About seven hundred specimens have been collected and examined. They belong to six genera, Lingulops, Lingulasma, Trigonoglossa, Pseudolingula, Lingula and Ectenoglossa, the latter new. Nineteen new species are described and figures and notes are given of four previously described species which were represented in the collection. In addition, six of Billings' species were restudied. A bibliography of the American species since 1915 is included."--
Geographical variation and distribution of the Johnny darter (Boleosoma nigrum olmstedi) in Quebec by Charles E Hall( )

1 edition published in 1942 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tessellated darters of the genus Boleosoma were first described by Rafinesque who, in 1820, named the Johnny darter Etheostoma nigrum. The type specimen was from the Green River of Kentucky. The species was transferred to the new genus Boleosoma by De Kay in 1842, and thus became Boleosoma nigrum. This and related genera have been grouped together by some taxonomists into the family Etheostomidae, though they are now usually included with other perch-like fishes in the family Percidae. The Johnny darter belongs to a group of fish which is apparently prone to speciation. A glance at the taxonomic history of the darters will clearly show that, with the passage of time, a greater number of species and subspecies are being recognized. Since the purpose or the writer's work is to demonstrate that in Quebec the Johnny darter 1s represented by three races or populations that are separable on the basis of squamation and the number of rays in the soft dorsal fin, it would perhaps be advisable to describe the species nigrum and a few of its subspecies.

Studies in the Arctic plankton, comprising a faunistic survey of certain of the marine planktonic groups collected in the Canadian eastern arctic, and an investigation of the breeding cycles of five of the most important species in the eastern arctic and in west Greenland by M. J Dunbar( )

1 edition published in 1941 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[...] There is a great deal more to be done in the Canadian arctic. Large portions of the area between Alaska and Greenland are still blank on the biological map. Scientific activity in this region, with the exception of the Canadian Arctic expedition and the Fifth Thule expedition, has been very restricted and in part somewhat casual. The zoological collections of the Canadian Arctic expedition added much to the knowledge of the north, but they were not very rich in marine material. [...] For these reasons I was very glad of the opportunity, in 1939, to go as marine biologist on the Canadian Eastern Arctic Patrol, in the Hudson's Bay Company ship "Nascopie". [...]. The work is a study in the Plankton of the coastal water, the fjords and inlets, not the open water. The large oceanographic expeditions have gained much knowledge of the open water and the depths beyond the continental shelves. They carry apparatus designed for such work, and the intimate investigation of the coastal water is left to others. The need for the detailed study of the coastal waters is pointed out by Steuer (1933). Russell (1936) emphasized this amongst other suggestions for the planning of future plankton expeditions. He adds that "especial attention should be paid to a study of the life histories of some of the larger arctic-boreal/ species such as Sagitta elegans and Clione limacina". [...] " --
