Objective(s): To survey the growth forms and heigth:width ratio of arctic flowering plants in the Tuktoyaktuk region; to determine if apical dominance is an important factor contrilling plant geigth and branching patterns;

Project Description: The Researcher will survey growth forms at two sites: one highly disturbed (i.e. a roadside) and one undisturbed site ( i.e. a field). The plants will be measured and a shoot removed from approximately 20-100 plants. Seeds will be collected.
