The Research long term goals are to: 1) produce the first “Flora of the Canadian Arctic”, a field guide to all plant species of the Canadian arctic; 2) implement an Arctic Plant website to provide easy access to information; 3) undertake studies on diversity and distribution of arctic plants and mosses; and 4) obtain DNA barcodes for all Canadian Arctic plants. The objectives on Victoria Island in...

The research team will make short visits to many sites in order to observe how plants vary morphologically and genetically from site to site across the arctic region. They will visit Mould Bay on Prince Patrick Island, Warrington Bay and McCormick Inlet on Melville Island. At each site the researchers will make observations on the morphology, ecology, reproductive biology, and distribution of eac...

The researcher will collect living plants (Arctic grasses), 6 - 10 species from each collection site. In addition, several plants of each species will be pressed and dried as voucher specimens to be used to check the identification. Photographs of the plants and their habitats will be made. In Ottawa, variations in DNA among different populations and species will be analyzed to study species re...
