Research on the Yukon North Slope

The Yukon North Slope is both a unique and diverse region of the Canadian Arctic. As such, it has come to be the focus of much research attention, from archeology and grizzly bear diets to fish genetics and changing plant communities. Below, our Council has provided some helpful resources for those interested in conducting research either on the North Slope or in surrounding communities, like Aklavik. We also recommend you explore the Resource Library, which includes links to a number of useful databases and past projects related to the region.
