Description: With up to 20,000 species of insects throughout Alberta the opportunities for entomological study are immense. An entomological reconnaissance study of the Syncrude Lease #17 area was required to gain preliminary data and to examine the potential of insects as biological monitors of environmental changes resulting from the Syncrude development. In 1974, a three week field reconnaissance study of terrestrial insects occurring on Syncrude Lease #17 and its environs, in the Athabasca Tar Sands of Northern Alberta, was carried out. Various sampling methods were employed in disturbed and undisturbed stands of different boreal forest tree types and in an area cleared of trees for mining purposes. The results obtained suggest that further study of certain insects may give an early indication of possible environmental damage. These insects are a dung beetle, Aphodius sp. Scarabaeidae: Coleoptera, two species of March flies Bibionidae : Diptera and several species of ground beetles Carabidae : Coleoptera. A future sampling plan can be based on the quantitative soil sampling data.

Weseloh , an avian ecologist, provided field and laboratory assistance. The original Lousier, Porter and Weseloh report has been adapted to its present form for the monograph series. The Management of Syncrude Ltd.
feel that scientific information which results from its studies should be made available to the public. Industry has an obligation to contribute to the body of knowledge necessary for orderly and responsible development of the tar sands. It is hoped that the research information will be helpful to the scientific community and to the citizens of Alberta who are concerned with the management of resources on a sound ecological basis. 1.
