Authors

Species account authors are credited at the end of each account. Section and chapter authors are credited at the beginning of relevant sections and chapters.

Copy Editing and Translation Team

In addition to the editorial team, Donna Danyluk, Paula Grieef, and Ardythe McMaster made significant contributions to editing and proof-reading. Peter Taylor played a particularly significant role in fact checking, style setting, and editing. Translations were made by staff members of Environment and Climate Change Canada except for accounts written by Ron Bazin, which were translated by the author. Christian Artuso, Luc Blanchette, Marie-Ève Cyr, Paula Grieef, Patricia Rosa, Pierre Richard, and Réné Seguin assisted in checking French translations, all of which were meticulously proof-read by Normand David.
