Abstract

This paper is based upon a report entitled "A report on observations on the biology of certain amphipods (Class Crustacea) in Banff, Jasper, Yoho & Kootenay National Parks and environs in Alberta-British Columbia, Canada" sent to The Director, National Parks Branch, Department of Northern Affairs and National Resources, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in January, 1969. The study relates specifically to the biology of Hyalella azteca Sauss. and Gammarus lacustris lacustris Sars. Each collection area has been photographed for its characteristic breeding area. Data on the breeding area as well as data on the pH, dissolved oxygen, total hardness and other aspects on the biology of these amphipods is discussed. Specific acknowledgement for identifications of these specimens by the staff, Natural History Branch, National Museum of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada is cited.
