Changing fire regimes in northern coniferous forests
Principal Investigator: Wallenius, Tuomo H
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application No.1103. The research objective is to study the occurrence of forest fires in Northern Canada during the past 200 years. They are especially interested in large scale averages and changes in the estimated fire return intervals/annually burned proportions of the landscape. Specific research questions are: 1. How often for...


Forestry Research Projects in the Gwich'in Settlement Area: Seismic Line Revegetation in the Gwich'in Settlement Area (GSA)
Principal Investigator: Van Gerwen-Toyne, Melanie
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: 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...


Prescribed Fire and Wildlife Habitat Enhancement
Principal Investigator: De Groot, Bill
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: Plant samples will be collected in the field by the researcher after they become dormat for treatment in a lab experiment. Burning treatments will be conducted in the lab where environmental growing conditions and the plant physiological state at the time of the treatment can be better controled. This will be done in order to model the effects of fire on two types of shrubs....


Forest Fire Research
Principal Investigator: Maffey, Murray
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will participate in and assist with fire behavior and fuel type data collection on the Little Rat Lake prescribed burn. The will resurvey the experimental burn plots and carry out a regeneration survey 10 years after the experimental burns at Porter Lake. Initial attack crew leaders in the Fort Simpson district will be interviewed to obtain detailed information about the effectiven...


Digital Database of Vegetation Types of the Mackenzie Valley Development Corridor
Principal Investigator: Squires Taylor, Cindy
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The Researcher will conduct a survey, approximately 30 km on either side of the Mackenzie River using satellite imagery. A classification will be undertaken of the area from the Mackenzie Delta to the Fort Simpson area, with wider zones along the east side to include proposed pipeline routes. The information can be plotted as colour maps to show the location of trap lines, forest fires or wildlife...


Licence #1897
Principal Investigator: Rowe, J.S.
Licenced Year(s): 1975
Summary: To analyze and correlate fire and climatic records in the upper Mackenzie Basin, N.W.T. To determine the pattern of change after fire and to determine the frequency with which fires recur, for Arctic Land Use Research Program....


Licence #1896
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, K.
Licenced Year(s): 1975
Summary: To determine how plant communities in the northern boreal forest respond to burning or to protection from burning, their rate of recovery and the factors governing the recovery process, for Arctic Land Use Research Program....
