Abstract:

'The physical, chemical and biological properties of aquatic ecosystems in the Western Canadian Arctic and Subarctic are rapidly changing. The anthropogenic build-up of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere and the consequent increase of ocean absorption of carbon dioxide (CO2) are causing ocean warming and acidification respectively. We need to provide high resolution model projections for these aquatic ecosystems to help inform resource managers and subsistence harvesters about the potential impacts of climate change and ocean acidification. Accurate projections with this level of complexity require linkages between high-resolution, basin-scale, ocean-ecosystem models and species-distribution models. To include multiple biological processes into these model platforms, the physiological limits and acclimation potential of key aquatic ectotherm species must be quantified. To address some of these needs we have created an ongoing Physiological Limits Database of Arctic/Subarctic species, which is based on published studies, fish catch data and Indigenous Knowledge reports'--Abstract, p. iv.
