Biographical Summary of Report Writers

Tom A. Sheldon graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science (with distinction), majoring in Zoology and minoring in Mathematics. He has previously worked under Dr. William Franzin of Fisheries and Oceans for two years as a Fisheries Biologist. Currently, he is a graduate student at the University of Manitoba completing a Master’s of Science degree on the genetics, biology, and ecology of deepwater sculpin throughout their range. Part of his research is also being conducted as a Visiting Scholar at Trent University.

Nicholas E. Mandrak is a Research Scientist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada in Burlington, Ontario. His research interests are the biodiversity, biogeography and conservation of Canadian freshwater fishes. Nick has co-authored 15 COSEWIC reports. He is a member of the COSEWIC Freshwater Fish Species Specialist Subcommittee.

John M. Casselman is an Adjunct Professor at Queen’s University in Kingston and Senior Scientist Emeritus with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources at the Glenora Fisheries Station. He specializes in studies of community dynamics and environmental physiology of fish and has studied the occurrence and reappearance of deepwater sculpin in Lake Ontario for a number of years.

Chris C. Wilson is a Research Scientist with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Trent University. His research interests are the genetics, biogeography and conservation of Canadian freshwater fishes.

Nathan R. Lovejoy is an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, where he studies biodiversity at a variety of taxonomic and geographic scales. A particular interest for him is the role that geography plays in the genesis and organization of genetic and taxonomic diversity.
