In a study of the molecular genetics of Amara alpina, an obligate tundra species, eight haplotypes were defined from Beringian populations compared to two and five, respectively, for Appalachian and Rocky Mountain populations, and only one for Hudson Bay populations (Ashworth, , Reiss et al., ).Cited by: 8. late quaternary history of southwest alberta: a progess report stuart a. harris; ;Cited by: 7. STUART HOUSTON. Abstract. The Hudson’s Bay Territory, which included the entire drainage basin west to Rocky Mountains, although one of the most thinly occupied areas in all of North America, was second only to South Carolina as the North American locality which contributed the most type specimens of birds.

  The Hudson's Bay Company, a fur-trading enterprise headquartered in London, began operations on the shores of Hudson Bay in During the next century and a half, it gradually expanded its network of trading posts west across Canada. In , it merged with its prime rival, the North West Company out of Montreal. Howse House or Fort Howse has the distinction of being the only fort built by the Hudson's Bay Company west of the Rocky Mountains until consolidation with the North West Company in In the Hudson's Bay Company built its Columbia Department headquarters on the Columbia River at Fort Vancouver (Washington) and named the shrewd Dr. John. Luckman et al. () proposed a 'mid neoglacial' glacial advance in the Canadian Rocky Mountains between approximately yrs BP. Similarly, Leonard () documented increased glacial lake sedimentation in the same region after yrs BP, reaching approximately present levels by yrs BP, and decreasing after about yr BP. The Rockies form the divide between the Pacific Ocean drainage on the west and that of Hudson Bay and the Arctic Ocean on the east. Of the range's rivers, only the Peace River penetrates the range. Notable rivers originating in the Canadian Rockies include the Fraser, Columbia, North Saskatchewan, Bow and Athabasca : Mount Robson.

Shallow seas may have extended over much of the Canadian Shield, with a connection through Hudson Bay to the north Atlantic Ocean. High-frequency depositional cyclicity in some parts of the basin suggest a control by orbitally forced eustasy, which caused sea-level changes in the range of 10 m over time scales in the range of 10– ka. This chapter reviews that the Late Wisconsinan North American ice sheet complex consisted of three major ice sheets: (1) the Laurentide Ice Sheet, which was centred on the Canadian Shield, but also expanded across the Interior Plains to the west and south, (2) the Cordilleran Ice Sheet, which inundated the western mountain belt between the northernmost co-terminus United Cited by: The ice sheet that covered the Ontario and the rest of Canada east of the Rocky Mountains is called the Laurentide ice sheet. The centre of the Laurentide ice sheet was located about where Hudson Bay is now located. The other ice sheet covered parts of the Rocky Mountains and is called the Cordilleran ice sheet.

I know the answer is Delaware Bay and Chesapeake Bay but I don't know where 2 label 's a map in my social studies book but it only talks about the Hudson 's a map in my book and it. asked by Gabby (5 grade) on March 5, ; More Similar Questions.
