Late Quaternary History of the Richardson Mountains and the Melville Hills
Principal Investigator: Lamoureux, Scott F
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research will require fieldwork in the Richardson Mountains between 27 April and 8 May, 2001. Research will involve the development of a high-resolution paleoenvironmental record based on lake sediments from up to six lakes in the Richardson Mountains and the Melville Hills in the NWT. Transportation in the field for the Dempster Highway study will be by snowmobile and snowshoes. If snow cov...

1. Hierarchy of stress tolerance for flowering plants in extreme polar desert. 2. Initial phase of primary succession following glacial retreat. 3. Life of plants in extreme environments. 4. Baker Lake experiment.
Principal Investigator: Svoboda, Josef
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1988 1987
Summary: The aim of projects 1 and 2 is to learn how plants returned to the arctic following the retreat of the ice sheet that covered Ellesmere Island some 8000 years ago. This research will also help to determine what effect climate warming will have for the plant communities of the high arctic. Project 3 will involve the filming of plant life in the high arctic. Project 4 is part of an on-going study...
