This study continues from the research conducted in 1991 where we examined the plant community and assessed plant distribution as the subarctic forest changes to tundra. We are interested in how the smaller plant species are influenced by changes in the number of trees that are nearby as well as changes in climate. Permanent plots will be established in order to monitor any changes in the plant ...

As part of a long-term study, we will continue to monitor the field experiments set up at Alexandra Fiord on Ellesmere Island which examine the effects of climate warming on high arctic plants. Small enclosures have been placed on top of the plants in order that the growing conditions such as temperature and moisture can be altered and their influences on the plants examined. This study is part ...

Some Arctic plants are found in almost every type of habitat, from wet meadows to dry gravel areas. Dr. Henry, Dr. Zilder and several students are looking at these plants to see how that is possible....
