Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee, Census of Antarctic Marine Life (CAML). The Census of Antarctic Marine Life project was designed to monitor changes in marine fish and invertebrate populations as a result of depletion in the ice shelves. The project was led by Australian scientists Michael Stoddart and Victoria Wadley, who documented more than 16,000 species, of which several hundred were previously unknown.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Census of Marine Zooplankton (CMarZ). The Census of Marine Zooplankton project examined the diversity and distribution of ocean current-residing invertebrates. The project, led by American scientist Ann Bucklin, Japanese scientist Shuhei Nishida and German scientist Sigrid Schiels, collected more than 10,000 samples from locations around the world’s oceans, discovering nearly 100 new species.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Continental Margin Ecosystems on a Worldwide Scale (COMARGE). The Continental Margin Ecosystem on a Worldwide Scale project examined life on the continental slopes, over the course of 60 expeditions. The project, led by French scientists Myrian Sibuet and Lenaick Menot and American scientist Robert Carney, discovered stretches of life flourishing on these marginal spaces (including heretofore unknown coral reefs off Africa). The project also examined the threat posed by oil and gas drilling on these sensitive stretches of seafloor.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Census of Coral Reef Ecosystems (CReefs). The Census of Coral Reef Ecosystems project conducted a thorough examination of the sorts of life found in the world’s coral reefs, discovering thousands of new species in the process while placing known species in new locales. The project, headed up by Americans Nancy Knowlton and Russell Brainard and Australian scientist Julian Caley, developed a tool called the Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structure to provided standardized examination of species distribution, warming temperatures and oceanic acidification at reef locations throughout the world.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee, Census of the Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life (CeDAMar). The Census of the Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life examined the feeding patterns and distribution ranges of life in the abyssal plains and larger oceanic basins in the Southern Atlantic and Southern Pacific oceans, ranging from single-celled organisms to larger cephalopods. The project, led by scientists Pedro Martinez Arbizu and Craig Smith, catalogued more than 500 new species and examined the causes of change to abyssal life far removed from the ocean floor (in the form of climate change, pollution and mining efforts).
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Global Census of Marine Life on Seamounts (CenSeam). The Global Census of Marine Life on Seamounts project examined life on more than 100,000 seamounts that rose more than 1000 metres from the ocean floor, discovering new species and ecosystems similar to those on neighbouring slopes. The project, led by New Zealanders Malcolm Clark, Mireille Consalvey and Ashley Rowden, and American Karen Stocks, examined the perilous nature of these isolated communities when subject to changes such as damage caused by nearby fishing.
Series consists of material regarding the Cephalopod International Advisory Council (CIAC). The CIAC was founded in 1983 and consists of nine executive members and nine alternate members. The advisory council was designed to ensure a progressive evolution of membership to reflect trends in living cephalopod research. Record types include meeting minutes, symposium materials and manuscripts.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Biogeography of Deep Water Chemosynthetic Ecosystems (ChESS). The Biogeography of Deep Water Chemosynthetic Ecosystems project explored life in the hostile, acidic, oftentimes hot and corrosive deep-sea seeps and hydrothermal vents, where life thrives away from any sunlight. The project, led by British scientists Paul Tyler and Maria Baker, American scientist Chris German, and Spanish scientist Eva Ramirez-Llodr, examined more than 1000 species and expanded ranges further north, south, and deeper than had previously been explored.
Fonds comprises reports, publications, meeting notes and minutes, correspondence and general documentation illustrating the activities of the Community Planning Association of Canada, Nova Scotia Division.

File contains materials from the 1993 Atlantic Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual Conference, including committee meeting minutes; correspondence; speaker biographies and session descriptions; an incomplete evaluation form; a list of weekend events; a list of video screenings; mailing lists; promotional materials; proposed budgets; and a conference vision statement. File also contains materials from the Maine Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual Symposium XX 1993, including programs, registration information and brochures; one program from Out Rights Pan-Canadian Conference on Lesbian and Gay Rights 1992; a schedule for Peggy's Festival 1993; and a Queer video and film festival presented by the Centre for Art Tapes.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Future of Marine Animal Populations (FMAP). The Future of Marine Animal Populations project analyzed fishing data and scientific surveys to determine changes in diversity and distribution of marine life. The project, headed by Canadian scientists Ian Jonsen, Heike Lotze, and Boris Worm (and previously by Ransom Myers), identified hot spots of diversity drawn from the Census of Marine Life database and changes in water temperature as one of the most integral determinants in the shaping of marine diversity patterns, while confirming that marine conservation helps to correct the rapid population declines associated with over-exploitation of marine stocks.
Fonds comprises records documenting Françoise Baylis's work as a bioethics scholar, educator and public intellectual, including her teaching, research, publishing and professional activities. Records include lecture and presentation notes and slides, manuscripts, publishing contracts, editorial correspondence and reviews, committee notes, agendas and correspondence.
Fonds contains correspondence from Dr. Frederick Waldemar (Waldo) Walsh to Dr. A. H. Harrington, regarding the Fruit and Vegetable Marketing Co-operative Organization in Nova Scotia in 1963. There are two series, one for certificates of Dr. Walsh, and another series for photographs taken at different events such as 4H events, Department of Nova Scotia Agriculture and Marketing conferences, retirement gatherings, and schools, while Walsh was a professor of Animal Husbandry [at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College] and sheep and swine promoter. Photos were taken and collected between 1910-1963.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Gulf of Maine Area (GOMA). The GOMA project involved creating a species register of the diverse Gulf of Maine, examining tidal pools, slopes, seamounts, and other underwater landforms. The project, headed by Canadian and American scientists Sara Ellis, Lewis Incze and Peter Lawton, assembled more than 4000 species and microbes native to the area (more than twice the amount previously determined to live in the Gulf). The project used sonar as a means of examining the overall marine ecosystem and species’ interactions, rather than focusing on individual species.
Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee History of Marine Animal Populations (HMAP). The History of Marine Animal Populations project traces evidence of how human activity and nature have changed marine life in recent years. The project, led by Irish scientist Paul Holm, Danish scientists Brian MacKenzie, Anne Husum Marboe and Bo Poulsen, and American Andrew Rosenberg, examined the prevalence of shell jewellery, evidence found in whaling logs, fishing boats' taxation logs, historical storm records, and numerous other primary and secondary sources, documenting humanity’s destruction of marine habitats, fish stocks and invertebrate populations.
