Abstract
Environmental samples collected along the coastline and from the interior of Alaska were examined for the presence of Clostridium botulinum. Clostridium botulinum type E was detected in soils from 5 of 12 beaches; in 7 of 115 non-coastal soil samples; in sediments from six of eight locales; in gills of salmon from two fishing areas; and in the feces of 1 of 44 colonic samples from marine mammals. The basic biochemical characteristics of the isolates were determined. Tube tests for demonstrating gelatin liquefaction proved insensitive with these strains, whereas a plate test detected gelatinase in all isolates. The presence of multiple nidi and the continual discharge of organic materials into the environment may contribute to the perpetuation of botulinum spores by which foods prepared form marine animals become contaminated. An emphasis should be placed upon the need for measures to reduce environmental contamination, to reduce contamination during food preparation, and to alert continually the population of the hazard wherever botulism is endemic.

Abstract
This assessment builds upon the previous AMAP human health assessment that was presented in "AMAP Assessment Report: Arctic Pollution Issues" that was published in 1998. The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) is a group working under the Arctic Council. The Arctic Council ministers have requested AMAP to: produce integrated assessment reports on the status and trends of the conditions of the Arctic ecosystems; identify possible causes for the changing conditions; detect emerging problems, their possible causes, and the potential risk to Arctic ecosystems including indigenous peoples and other Arctic residents; and to recommend actions required to reduce risks to Arctic ecosystems. The ministers have placed special priority on the potential impacts of contaminants on the health of Arctic residents, including the combined effects of mixtures of contaminants acting together with other potential stressors.

Abstract
The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP), established in 1991 under the Arctic Environmental Protection Strategy (AEPS), was given the responsibility to monitor the levels and assess the effects of selected anthropogenic pollutants in all compartments of the Arctic. This is the first AMAP assessment report, and it represents a collaborative effort involving over 400scientists and administrators. It is based on AMAP-coordinatednational and international monitoring programs within the eight Arctic countries, in combination with data and information from several research programs, including contributions from non-Arctic countries and international organizations.

Abstract
Objective: The Circumpolar Health Bibliographic Database (CHBD) contains 4,850 records describing publications about all aspects of human health in the circumpolar region. The database is a project of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Team in circumpolar health research. In this paper we describe the CHBD. Methods: Descriptive study. Results: The CHBD induces all types of publications, both peer-reviewed and "gray" (not peer-reviewed) literature, in paper and digital formats. It can be searched using words from titles and abstracts, names of diseases or conditions, types of people, geographic regions, authors, years and special groups of publications, such as all publications of the members of the CIHR Team. Search results can be sorted by year or by first author. The records in the CHBD contain citations, abstracts, subject and geographic indexing terms, library symbols and links to 2,000 online publications. As part of the CHBD project, server space is available to make PDF files of publications available online. Records created for the CHBD also appear in the Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS), the international Arctic & Antarctic Regions database and in relevant Canadian regional databases, such as the Inuvialuit Settlement Region Database, the Nunavut Environmental Database and the Nunavik Bibliography. Conclusions: The CHBD's coverage is far from comprehensive but the database includes many publications not indexed elsewhere, such as "gray" literature from Canada's northern territories, all human health publications from the Northern Contaminants Program and International Polar Year health publications.

Abstract
The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program addresses levels of environmental chemicals in abiotic and biotic components of the Arctic ecosystem, temporal and spatial trends, the fate of pollutants in the environment, and their effects on the food chain and humans. One of the principal tasks of AMAP continues to be the assessment of implications and impacts of pollution on the health of Arctic residents, residents both indigenous and non-indigenous to the region. The third AMAP Human Health assessment seeks to update the 2002 AMAP Human Health assessment with the latest data and analysis rather than to provide a new independent assessment. The report synthesizes the latest research results from circumpolar countries, building upon previous assessments of environmental chemicals and the variety of their impacts on the health of Arctic populations. Therefore, to benefit most from this work the reader should be familiar with previous assessments.

From back cover : Food systems of Indigenous Peoples who retain connection to long-evolved cultures and patterns of living in local ecosystems present a treasure of knowledge that contributes to well-being and health, and can benefit all humankind. This book seeks to define and describe the diversity in food system use, nutrition and health in 12 rural case studies of Indigenous Peoples in different parts of the world as a window to global Indigenous Peoples’ circumstances. A procedure for documenting Indigenous Peoples’ food systems was developed by researchers working with the Centre for Indigenous Peoples’ Nutrition and Environment (CINE) at McGill University, Canada, and the FAO. The procedure was adapted and applied in case studies located in Canada, Japan, Peru, India, Nigeria, Colombia, Thailand, Kenya, and the Federated States of Micronesia. The collective intent of this documentation is to show the inherent strengths of the local traditional food systems, how people think about and use these foods, the influx of industrial and purchased food, and the circumstances of the nutrition transition in indigenous communities. This research was completed with both qualitative and quantitative methods by Indigenous Peoples and their academic partners in the context of the second International Decade of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, and the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples adopted in 2007 by the General Assembly of the United Nations.
