The objective is to improve the empirical foundations for predictive caribou habitat mapping within the forested areas of the Taiga Plains and Taiga Shield Ecoregions in NWT, roughly south of Great Bear Lake. A network of long-term study plots will be established across a range of fire characteristics and vegetation types, where the research team will measure the rate and direction of forest and c...

The purpose of this project is to identify the factors that promote or retard forest regrowth after seismic line cutting. Little was known about tree regeneration on seismic lines until the 2001-2003 study by Seccombe-Hett and Walker-Larsen, which showed that older lines were well-stocked but that the delay in coloniziation might be caused by dramatic subsidence and resulting water-logging.

Baseline data on the rate of tree growth (productivity) and time required for trees to re-establish (regeneration) following fires and anthropogenic disturbances are required to determine forest sustainability and understand how habitat changes over time...

The Researcher will study regions of past burned areas south and north of Inuvik to determine if post-fire spruce establishment has occured not only on areas formally dominated by spruce, but also on larger areas that were formerly tundra....
