Her curiosity led to her to one tickets of the few sources of information on Arctic insects, a two-week field course in Churchill, Manitoba, taught by biologists Peter Kevan and the late Rob Roughley. Plants and flowers were one of the inspirations and major links to Mallory’s latest project, following her 2004 book Common tickets Plants of Nunavut. “But I did find so many kinds of flies that I didn’t know about, helping make the tickets North more beautiful with flowers. And although her book documents stories from elders, Mallory says she expected to hear more about how insects impacted traditional Inuit life on tickets the land.
In the South, insect research is often fueled by forestry and agriculture, which is largely absent in tickets Nunavut. But Mallory, who calls herself a tickets writer, not a scientist, admits there is much more to learn about northern insects. Arctic insects have also adapted to the cold by sporting darker tickets and hairier bodies, and hiding inside plants to stay warm. Some species can live in temperatures up to -60 C using glycerol, an internal anti-freeze, to protect their tickets tissues from freezing, Mallory said.
