Principal Investigator:Piercey, Melissa Licenced Year(s):
Roots of plants inhabiting cold-stressed environments are often colonized by vegetatively reproducing fungi. The researcher will examine the genetic variation within and among populations of Phialocephala fortinii P. along a latitudinal gradient encompassing the boreal, subarctic and arctic zones in Northern Canada. The researcher will travel from Yellowknife to 3 study sites surrounding Great ...
Principal Investigator:Lutzoni, Francois Licenced Year(s):
I will be collecting lichens in the vicinity of Iqaluit in order to better understand the variety of species that grow in the high arctic. Some species of fungi grow with algae: these partnerships are recognized as lichens. In an attempt to study this partnership, I will separate the fungi part from the algae and grow each separately in a laboratory. I will also be visiting Greenland and Icelan...

To gather specimens of plants, fungi (mushrooms) and insects to be preserved and retained in museums for future study and taxonomy (plant classification)....
Principal Investigator:Widden, Paul Licenced Year(s):
A continuation of the study of the effects of spilled crude oil on micro- organisms (e.g. fungi) in the soils of high arctic islands....
