1. Initial Phase of Primary Sucession Following Glacial Retreat 2. Secondary Metabolites in Arctic Willow 3. Photosynthesis and Respiration in Blue-Green Algae 4. Revegetation of Snow/ Ice Landscapes During Lt. Ice Age 5. Monitoring of ITEX
Principal Investigator: Svoboda, Josef
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1988 1987
Summary: The aim of the Sverdrup Pass Project is to learn how vegetation returned to the artic realm after the retreat of the continental ice sheet (8000 years ago) and the prospect of the land becoming green if climate warms. The Itex project is geared to the effect of climate warming on the vegetation. The snow-fence study at Baker Lake is concerned with the effects of long-lying snow deposited on both s...

Responses of Circumpolar Plant Species and Their Communities To Simulated Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Henry, Greg H R
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: Researchers have established field experiments in 5 plant communities to simulate climate change scenarios (i) no change; (ii) warmer, longer seasons with earlier snow melt; (iii) warmer growing seasons with later snow melt. The temperatures are increased in small open-topped greenhouses and the date of snow melt is changed by adding or removing snow. Tagged plants of the major vascular plant spec...
