Remerciements et Sources d'information

Remerciements

Le rapport de situation de 2006 sur le marsouin commun (population de l’Atlantique Nord-Ouest) est une mise à jour du rapport de situation de 2003 (Comité sur la situation des espèces en péril au Canada [COSEPAC], 2003).

Le rapport de 2003 a été préparé par A. Read pour le COSEPAC, en vertu d’un contrat avec Environnement Canada. Il y remerciait Dave Johnston, qui a préparé la figure 2, ainsi que Tara Cox, Dave Johnston et Andrew Westgate, qui ont révisé une première ébauche du rapport à la demande de A. Read. Ce dernier exprimait également sa gratitude à R. Reeves, G. Stenson, M. Kingsley, H. Whitehead, R. Boles, H. Powles, V. Lesage, M. Chadwick, J. Lawson, R. Stewart, P. Richard, E. Trippel et plusieurs réviseurs anonymes pour leur examen constructif du rapport préliminaire. A. Read a particulièrement remercié H. Whitehead, qui a été un réviseur constructif et patient, de son aide précieuse dans la préparation du rapport.

La mise à jour du rapport en 2006 a été préparée par Randall Reeves, qui reconnaît les efforts exceptionnels de B. de March et de G. Stenson et qui les remercie de leur aide dans la préparation de la section « Structure de la sous-population ». Stenson et V. Lesage ont collaboré à la section sur les prises accessoires. R. Boles a fourni une aide inestimable dans la préparation du manuscrit.
