The State of Northern Yukon has been produced as a Web document for use by the Ecological Monitoring and Assessment Network (EMAN). In the Northern Yukon and adjacent jurisdictions, government agencies and co-management bodies are working to develop long-term monitoring within the range of the Porcupine Caribou Herd and Beaufort coastal and marine areas. This working group forms a Science Co-operative (the Northern Yukon Ecological Knowledge Co-operative) within the national EMAN.
This Web document was produced in 1996 and will be adapted and updated as required to meet the needs of the EMAN program and of the Porcupine Caribou Management Board as a communications and synthesis tool. We have experimented with a variety of presentation types--maps with "clickable" legends, a working simulation model, photo essays and a slide show. The authors welcome your comments.
