Constraints To Ecosystem Development in High Arctic Polar Deserts
Principal Investigator: Bliss, Lawrence
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: We seek to better understand how ecosystems develop in the high arctic following retreat of ice caps. This includes studies of soil development and the influence that rocks play in this as well as studying the development of block crusts of organisms that form on the soil surface. We will also try to understand the role these crusts play in fixing nitrogen and influencing the development of flower...


The role of soil algae in high arctic ecosystem development
Principal Investigator: Bliss, Lawrence
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1989 1988
Summary: The researcher will continue his long term work on plants in a high arctic polar desert. More specifically, this study will examine the small organisms that live in the soil and how these organisms interact with and provide benefits to plants....
