This collection considers biodiversity conservation in relation to the health and well-being of Indigenous Peoples. Content is organized around the question posed by a Whapmagoostui Cree Elder, “If the land is not healthy, how can we be?” Subject matter spans the social and natural sciences and includes the following topics: environmental stewardship; Indigenous food systems and security, governance, identity and culture; wildlife and plant conservation practices; the bridging of knowledge systems and worldviews; rights of nature; and human health and well-being in relation to land, water, and its dwellers. Our red thread is how support for the roles of Indigenous-led and community-based research and practice on the value of biodiversity to human well-being can help drive the transformative changes we need to achieve environmental sustainability as a global community. Indigenous languages will be used to convey words, phrases and concepts not readily expressed in English alongside definitions especially where these illustrate interconnections between biodiversity and health-well-being of humans and the land.
A world ever more permeated by technology and impacted by Covid-19 poses a range of new challenges for both researchers and citizens as well as exacerbating existing ones. Among the most important questions raised by these circumstances are: How can we help citizens to wisely and safely navigate in a world where facts and fiction compete for our attention? And to this end, how can we best teach the next generation about the guiding principles of reliable research? This collection aims to engage stakeholders in responding to these challenges through an effort to foster a vibrant research integrity culture. The Path2Integrity project is inviting everyone interested in these issues to come together to learn about and co-create new approaches and methods to teach research integrity. We have specifically invited teachers in lower and higher levels of education, curriculum developers, ethics and research integrity officers, researchers, university managers and administrators, representatives of research and education funding agencies, and media and citizen representatives to participate in this collection.
The Strategy for Patient Oriented Research (SPOR) Evidence Alliance is a pan-Canadian research initiative designed to promote evidence-informed health policy and practice changes. SPOR Evidence Alliance members prepared a collection of manuscripts to disseminate knowledge about our approach to bridging gaps in the research-to-practice continuum using a multi-pronged approach that includes:...
This Collection addresses what smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan African countries are doing to increase their food security with available resources. Agricultural scientists use the yield gap (the difference between the potential yield of a particular area and the actual yield) to guide efforts to enhance smallholder wellbeing in developing nations.
The Royal Society of Canada has established a task force to equip Canadians with accurate information about our response and recovery to the COVID-19 pandemic. This collection hosts policy briefings that result from the RSC working groups established by the Task Force. While some of the policy briefings fall outside of the normal scope of FACETS, they are being published here due to the extreme nature of the pandemic and the importance of broadly disseminating timely independent expertise to the public. This collection is ongoing, as new policy briefings are added upon completion. (Guest Editor: Tom Marrie)

FACETS publishes a diverse range of research by scientists from all over the world. We would like to pay tribute to the life and works of these scientists who have made significant contributions to science and society. This collection of Retrospectives highlights eminent individuals who have made a lasting impact, through decades of research and exceptional achievements.
Science today—how we do it and how we communicate it—is a rapidly evolving landscape with technological advancements, cultural shifts, and global change. Early career researchers (ECRs) are not only training in these dynamic and competitive environments but also challenging norms and creating solutions so that science can advance in productive, responsible, and sustainable ways.
FACETS is highly supportive of ECRs. To help them navigate through these new challenges and achieve a successful career, we are providing a collection of perspectives on philosophical and practical aspects of research, academia, and science publishing.
This curated Collection includes resources on inclusive language in writing a grant, communicating science effectively, the responsible use of social media, working with Indigenous communities, and more.
Ranaviruses are pathogens of coldblooded animals. They can cause mass mortality in wild and captive fish with implications for food security and trade. The impact on wild populations of reptiles and amphibians is equally devastating and is a major player in extinction of frogs across the globe. The Global Ranavirus Consortium and its transboundary collaboration between scientists has furthered the understanding of ranaviral ecology. (Guest Editors: David Lesbarrères and Ellen Ariel)
FACETS is proud to be the official journal of the Royal Society of Canada’s Academy of Science. Founded in 1882, the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) comprises the Academy of Arts and Humanities, the Academy of Social Sciences, and the Academy of Science; in addition to Canada’s first national system of multidisciplinary recognition for the emerging generation of Canadian intellectual leadership, the RSC College. The RSC’s mission is to recognize scholarly, research and artistic excellence, to advise governments and organizations, and to promote a culture of knowledge and innovation in Canada and with other national academies around the world. This collection is a display of all published papers authored by at least one Member from the RSC.
This thematic issue introduces the NSERC funded ResNet initiative and its efforts to improve the long-term wellbeing of Canadians by improving decision-making around multiple ecosystem services in working landscapes. (Guest Editors: Elena Bennett and Evan Fraser)
Scientific research grapples with complex problems best addressed by the combined intelligence of researchers with diverse identities, backgrounds, and perspectives. Ensuring that diverse ways of knowing are represented in science requires commitment and action from those who publish and disseminate scientific research. FACETS and its publisher—Canadian Science Publishing—have pledged to help build a more equitable, diverse, inclusive, and accessible culture in science publishing.
The reasons for precipitous declines in biodiversity globally and in Canada are known. Many ways of addressing these problems have been proposed by natural and social scientists and conservation advocates. However, policies and practices at local, provincial, national and international levels have failed to address these issues and reverse the decline for virtually all species and ecosystems. While the science is clear, the politics is not. The political barriers to effective conservation of wildlife in Canada are highlighted and confronted, along with opportunities to redress them. (Guest Editors: Andrea Olive and Karen Beazley)
The scope of this collection titled “Climate change and the Canadian marine conservation framework” is to examine science-based approaches for integrating climate change into the design, monitoring, and management of Canadian marine conserved areas. Climate change is an ongoing and increasing threat to the effectiveness of protected areas and other spatial planning tools throughout Canada’s exclusive economic zone.
The Canadian Fungal Network (CanFunNet) was established in 2019 to promote fungal research in Canada by facilitating dialogue among scientists working across diverse sub-disciplines and institutions. The first CanFunNet conference was held virtually in July 2020, with an audience of 310 participants from 89 institutions across Canada, and 63 presenters representing all career stages. The second annual CanFunNet conference was held virtually in May 2021, with 339 participants from 15 countries (~90% from Canada), including 152 presenters. CanFunNet 21 was a joint virtual meeting with The Great Lakes Mycology Meeting (GLMM), an annual conference of graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and other mycological researchers from Ontario and the surrounding region, established in 1981 by Brent and Michele Heath and David Malloch.
