Throughout his career Ellis was active in research on marine environmental impact from disposal of mine tailings to the sea, and recovery of marine ecosystems from such disposal. He taught in the general areas of marine biology, taxonomy, animal behaviour, and environmental science.

Associated materials

Selected tables from Ellis' 1957 McGill University dissertation Marine Infaunal Benthos in Arctic North America are available in PDF on UVicSpace, the University of Victoria's institutional repository: Data in tables are a selection from benthonic species quantitative surveys made in Baffin Island during 1954 and 1955 and in West Greenland during 1956 in order to estimate the standing crop of benthos in these regions. At the time very little was known about arctic North American benthonic species, which are economically important as stocks of food for commercial fish.
