SLC is the only federal research and development centre devoted entirely to the river ecosystem. Our specialists are involved in a multitude of studies and research programs aimed at better understanding how the ecosystems of the St. Lawrence River function and at keeping this knowledge up to date.
Our goal is to enable users to locate and obtain access to Earth science data sets and services relevant to the global change and Earth science research. The GCMD database holds more than 15,000 descriptions of Earth science data sets and services covering all aspects of Earth and environmental sciences.
Reptiles and amphibians are perhaps the most maligned and misunderstood members of the animal kingdom. This website serves to provide information on retilian and amphiban species, their habitat and life cycle, why their populations are declining, and what we can do.
