Capitalizing on long-term experimental manipulations to understand and predict arctic terrestrial ecosystem responses to climate warming
Principal Investigator: Grogan, Paul
Licenced Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine the biogeochemical and ecological significance of our discovery that mesic tundra plant growth can be co-limited by nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P); 2) to predict the likely impacts of not just climate change, but also declining caribou and other mammalian herbivory, on tundra deciduous and evergreen shrub abundances; and, 3) to evaluate...


Biogeochemical controls on the structure and functioning of low arctic ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Grogan, Paul
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008
Summary: The Arctic is undoubtedly experiencing several major perturbations including climate change, and resource development and extraction (e.g. mining and pipeline construction) that are very likely to substantially affect the structure and functioning of its ecosystems. As a terrestrial ecosystem ecologist, the long-term goal of this research over the next 15-20 years is to substantially advance the u...
