Revitalizing Language and Communicating Science with Ojibwe Translations
"Language is important. Although we may not be fully conscious of it, the language we speak shapes how we see the world and relate to it. Recognizing this, the International Institute for Sustainable Development Experimental Lakes Area (IISD-ELA) in northwestern Ontario has partnered with three individuals through Grand Council Treaty #3 (GCT3) – a governing body of the Anishinaabe Nation in the Treaty 3 lands – to begin translating science materials into the Ojibwe language, Anishinaabemowin."

Lake Ice—and Ecosystems—in a Warming World
"Ice cover on freshwater lakes, even when only seasonally present, can strongly influence warming summer lake temperatures, algal growth, and nutrient availability. As effects of ice cover on inland aquatic ecosystems have become clearer, research into the biogeochemical and ecological processes that occur during winter has blossomed. But because of challenges inherent in winter fieldwork, these studies have not kept pace with the ecological changes associated with continuing decreases in seasonal ice duration."
