Principal Investigator:Naeth, M. Anne Licenced Year(s):
The overall research goal is to determine appropriate methods to restore disturbed sites at Diavik Diamond Mine to productive and sustainable tundra communities following mine closure. There are three main research areas 1) building suitable reclamation substrates for plant establishment and growth, 2) methods of collection and propagation of locally common native plant and lichen species; and 3) ...
Principal Investigator:Trimble, Annika EV Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this sub-project are:
1) to continue assessing the performance of native plants which were seeded and transplanted into field plots in 2006 and 2007; and
2) to establish two new field plots at the Inuvik golf course with the same intent of monitoring native seed performance in a disturbed habitat.
The research team intends to collect data regarding winter survival, seedling e...

The objective of this research project is to conduct fieldwork to determine the population size, distribution, and habitat of Nahanni Aster.
Fieldwork will involve helicopter access to hotspring habitats. Presence/absence of Nahanni Aster will be recorded, stems counts will be conducted, and habitat and potential threats will be described. There are possible opportunities to promote the Nahanni ...
Principal Investigator:Haas, Claudia A Licenced Year(s):
This project is to fill gaps in ecological information on a Candidate Protected Area while it makes its way through the NWT Protected Areas Strategy (PAS) process. This information will be used by the working group to make recommendations on final boundary and management planning for the area.
The study will be done at the same time as a study on mercury in fish being conducted by the Dehcho F...
Principal Investigator:Carriere, Suzanne Licenced Year(s):
The focus of this study will be to determining the area of occupancy of the plant Hairy Rockcress (Braya pilosa) in the NWT, the habitat requirements of the species, to collect viable seeds for genetic studies and potential rescue of genetic material if extinction is imminent, and to estimate the rates of shore loss for each sub-population.
Ground surveys will be conducted within walking or bo...
Principal Investigator:Stephen, Celsian C Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this project is to enhance our understanding of the controls on the mobility of metal contaminants in mine-impacted environments. More specifically, to enhance our understanding of the role terrestrial and aquatic plants play in sequestering mine-contaminants such as arsenic, antimony, copper, lead and zinc.
The field methods for this program consist of a soil and vegetation...

To continue with phytoremediation planting on the Nota Creek C-17 well site. Additional plantings are necessary to determine the efficiency of the phytoremediation program and to further assess its viability as a remediation strategy for the well site. The full well site will be planted in 2010.
Access to the site will be by helicopter. Planting is planned for early June. Site monitoring and ev...
Principal Investigator:Darnell, David M. Licenced Year(s):
This licence is being issued for the scientific research application No.1095.
The objective of this research is to obtain specimens of the major plant species comprising the plant communities found in the northwestern Northwest Territories, especially those riparian ones not found in the adjacent Yukon Territory.
The researchers will employ standard botanical field techniques and equipment...

PLEASE NOTE: this ARI licence is for fieldwork happening OUTSIDE TUKTUT NOGAIT NATIONAL PARK. The research permit for work inside TNPP is issued by Parks Canada.
The long term goals of this research 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; a...
Principal Investigator:Miller, Glenn D Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this research is to identify and document valued vegetation components in the vicinity of proposed winter activities. Each selected site will be assessed for important vegetation components, such as the potential for: rare plants and vegetation communities. The research will include photo documentation and visual observations to characterize each site for vegetation features. Inf...
