Persons writing papers or books and even collectors or museum curators who
want to keep specimen data up to date should be aware of this geopolitical
change.  Since 1905, the boundaries of the Northwest Territories, Canada
were unchanged (so far as I know). But this spring the area was reconfigured
into two distinct geopoliitical entities. A new and smaller Northwest
Territories in the western portion of the old territory; and a new territory
with the name of Nunavut (in one of the Inuit languages it means 'our land')
which now occupies the eastern portion of the old territorial unit. You can
see a map of this new reality at  and a
written boundary description at
