Abstract
When the white man first came to the island they named Greenland, bleeding peculiarities were noted in the Eskimos. Now it is well established that thrombotic events (e.g., coronary disease) are very uncommon in Eskimos. Modern treatments for cardiovascular disease (valve, arrhythmia) make use of anticoagulants. This may be a problem where patients with artificial heart valves live in remote districts that receive poor medical service. Measurement of prothrombin level once every fourth (!) year in patients on warfarin, dicoumarol, or phenprocoumon is not uncommon and seems hazardous. Two ways to provide more safety seem obvious: (1) change to anticoagulant treatment that does not require laboratory screening, e.g., aspirin, as the Eskimos rarely form thrombi; (2) use of a bioprosthesis that does not require anticoagulant treatment.

Abstract
This thesis attempts to answer: 1) How has history and evolution shaped the relationship of Aleut and Eskimo populations? and 2) What is the relationship of Aleuts and Eskimos to other Native American populations? Questions are addressed using anthropometric measurements and classical genetic markers. Relethford- Blangero method was applied to athropometrics of the study populations. Results were compared to Nei’s genetic distance matrix of classical genetic markers. Multivariate analyses were used to determine relationships among Aleuts, Eskimos and other American Indians. This study shows a close phylogenetic relationship among Aleuts and Eskimos. Anthropometrics reveal a close relationship between Savoonga, Gambell and St. Paul due to shared European admixture. Despite shared population history, St. George did not cluster with the other Bering Sea natives in the PCA, NJT, or unscaled R-matrices; highlighting affects of genetic drift on St. George. A close relationship between Aleuts, Eskimos, Northwest, and Northeast Natives was evident.

Abstract
A case of insect borne transmission of ulceroglandular tularemia in Canada above the tree line is presented. It seems likely from the available entomological data that a mosquito was the vector in this case. Mosquito vectors may be important in inducing the high seroprevalence of antibodies to F. tularensis above the treeline. This case is presented to make clinicians aware of the possibility of tularemia in cases of insect borne ulceroglandular disease in the arctic and, the necessity of measuring tularemia agglutinins in these patients. It should be noted that isolation of this organism poses a risk to laboratory personnel, and therefore should only be attempted in a reference laboratory. Therefore the diagnosis is based upon the finding, in the appropriate clinical context, of a four-fold rise in the tularemia agglutinins, or a single convalescent titre of 1:160 or greater.
