Knowledge Co-Production for the Identification and Selection of Ecological, Social, and Economic Indicators for the Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Loseto, Lisa
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The overarching objective of this project is to bring together indicators from multiple sources, along with multi-stakeholder perspectives, to provide a comprehensive evaluation of indicators to meet the goals of managing agencies. In order to accomplish this we aim to: 1) identify the stakeholder objectives to be used for monitoring marine resources, 2) create comprehensive data on indicators (ec...


Plant communities along Bakers Creek NWT
Principal Investigator: Stevens, Kevin J
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The research team will conduct a comprehensive wetland plant community vegetation analysis along Bakers Creek with a focus on the lower stretch of the creek. In addition soil samples will be obtained for an assessment of soil dwelling fungal communities. The assessment will include emergent vegetation along riparian areas as well a floating leaved, free floating and submerged vegetation in the ...


Biomonitoring 2.0: biodiversity assessment in Slave River tributaries
Principal Investigator: Baird, Donald J
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: This project will assess the biodiversity in the Slave and Dog Rivers, NWT, using a variety of collection methods, to support the establishment of baseline biomonitoring conditions, and to explore the use of DNA-based identification of animals, plants and microorganisms. The food webs of these systems will also be described using stable isotope techniques. The project will contribute to the wider ...


Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Co-op: Community and individual Engagement Analysis
Principal Investigator: Gagnon, Catherine A
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to assess the processes used by the Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Co-op (ABEKC) to communicate within and beyond its members; to assess the contributions of the ABEKC in terms of building capacity, bonds and common learning amongst its participants: scientists, community monitors, board members, representatives from local organizations; and, to...


Development and application of monitoring tools to quantify the effects of mining on the health of rivers in the South Nahanni Watershed (NWT)
Principal Investigator: Scrimgeour, Garry J
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The objectives of this research are two-fold: 1) Identify an ecological indicator that can monitor changes in loadings of metals in the South Nahanni Watershed. This work is scheduled for completion in 2007-2008. 2) Establish a monitoring program that can quantify the cumulative effects of mining activities on the health of streams in the South Nahanni Watershed. This work is scheduled for compl...

Principal Investigator: Parlee, Brenda L
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: This project involves working with the Gwich'in Renewable Resources Board, the Tetlit Gwich'in Renewable Resources Committee and elders/harvesters from Fort McPherson to document traditional indicators and methods for community-based monitoring. The main...


Establishment of Permanent Monitoring Plots in South Slave Region
Principal Investigator: Smith, Lisa
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: A network of permanent monitoring plots (PMPs) is required for assessing forest growth and yield in the NWT. These PMPs will be used to: 1) obtain information to assess the rate of forest growth and determine current and potential yield of various fores...

Principal Investigator: Smith, Lisa
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: A network of permanent monitoring plots (PMPs) is required for assessing forest growth and yield in the NWT. These PMPs will be used to: 1) obtain information to assess the rate of forest growth and determine current and potential yield of various fores...


Establishment of Permanent Monitoring Plots in Sahtu
Principal Investigator: Smith, Lisa
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: There are three primary objectives of the study; 1) growth and yield information to assess the rate of forest growth and determine current and potential yield of various forest types; 2) NWT cumulative impact monitoring for the Western NWT Biophysical St...


Preconstruction biophysical site assessment (wildlife, vegetation) of potential well locations and flow line options within the Significant Discovery Area, and post-construction vegetation and permafrost monitoring on the Cameron Hills Gathering System
Principal Investigator: Hong, Tom
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: A pre-construction biophysical site assessment will focus on wildlife and vegetation. The proposed well-sites will be examined on foot, and the flowlines walked to document vegetation types, including rare species if present. Main vegetation types will b...
