Parapatric lake and stream sticklebacks on northern Vancouver Island: disjunct distribution or parallel evolution? Morphological analysis of sticklebacks from Misty Lake and its inlet stream (Keogh River system, northern Vancouver Island) reveals two forms of Gasterosteus. Sticklebacks from the lake are large and slender bodied with a black back and sides, while sticklebacks from the inlet stream are smaller with a stockier body and mottled brown back and sides. Lake fish also have shorter jaws, longer spines, and more gill rakers than the stream fish. These differences in body shape, trophic structures, and colour are inherited, and the two forms breed true in the laboratory. This implies that they are independent gene pools rather than a single gene pool containing some complex polymorphism. The pair from Misty lake and stream is compared with ecologically similar pairs from Graham Island in the Queen Charlotte Archipelago. The lake-stream pairs on the two islands are strikingly similar. Two hypotheses are examined that might explain the origins and remarkable resemblance of these widely disjunct lake-stream pairs. One hypothesis is historically based and argues that the lake-stream pairs on northern Vancouver Island and the Queen Charlotte Islands share a common origin. The other hypothesis argues that the similarities between the lake-stream pairs on the two islands are the result of parallel evolution (i.e., independent evolution of similar phenotypes in response to similar selection regimes). The available data do not allow a distinction to be made between the hypotheses. The historical hypothesis, however, argues for a divergence that predates the Fraser glaciation, whereas the parallel-evolution hypothesis requires postglacial divergence. Since the two hypotheses differ in the amount of time available for divergence, it may be possible to distinguish between the hypotheses at the molecular level.
There is a savings plan available in which the Federal Government will input a percentage of your contributions. These are called Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP). Finally, there is Senior high school; this is for grades 10 - 12(15 - 18 years old). To graduate from high school, students need to achieve 100 credits. Credits are given for different subjects and courses that the student can take. High schools also offer many different choices for students to help them to prepare for further education in Alberta. Schools do not have to teach a second language, however many schools offer various language courses. Students are encouraged to learn French, Canada's other official language. Depending on the school there are many other second language courses available. Immersion - this is where French is mainly used during the school day to teach the pupils. At elementary level it is used for 50 - 100 % of the day and 40 - 80% at the secondary level. You do not have to have French speaking parents to enroll in French immersion. Bi-lingual - in which the language is used 25-50% of the time.
Second language programs - in which a particular language is taught as a course. Students who are new to education in Alberta and are from a foreign (non Canadian curriculum) school system should submit an official statement of previous standing, such as a report card to the school they want to enroll in. You should also have the previous school records and transcripts, copies of course outlines and content. After considering a number of factors including the students age, records and test results they will be placed in the appropriate grade. There are publicly funded colleges which are located at many different places. The courses that these colleges offer include academic upgrading, job readiness, apprenticeship certificate and diplomas. Three campus based universities, University of Alberta (Edmonton), University of Calgary and the University of Lethbridge and one distance learning university, the University of Athabasca. There are also seven private colleges that are accredited to grant degrees at University level. Another type of course available is the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training System which is an industry and government partnership that ensures a highly skilled workforce in 54 designated trades. There are also scholarships available in this system. As with all of Canada, the Post Secondary education in Alberta is NOT free. Several years ago, the Canadian Government launched Registered Education Savings Plans (RESP's) to help parents save for their children's future education in Alberta. These are great if you start them early, but if your kids are about to start when you land it is too late. In that case, there are interest free student loans available if you attend a designated post secondary institute full time. These are only available to Canadian citizens or permanent residents. There are two sources of student loans for education in Alberta - the Government of Canada and the Government of Alberta.
