The goal of this research over the next five years is to substantially advance the understanding of how Canadian arctic tundra ecosystems function, and therefore how they are likely to be affected by perturbations such as climate change, resource development and extraction, and atmospheric pollution. Specifically, the research team will focus on the impacts on vegetation due to warmer summer tempe...

The objective of this research project is to conduct fieldwork to determine the population size, distribution, and habitat of Nahanni Aster.
Fieldwork will involve helicopter access to hotspring habitats. Presence/absence of Nahanni Aster will be recorded, stems counts will be conducted, and habitat and potential threats will be described. There are possible opportunities to promote the Nahanni ...
Principal Investigator:Gillespie, Lynn J. Licenced Year(s):
The Research long term goals are to: 1) produce the first “Flora of the Canadian Arctic”, a field guide to all plant species of the Canadian arctic; 2) implement an Arctic Plant website to provide easy access to information; 3) undertake studies on diversity and distribution of arctic plants and mosses; and 4) obtain DNA barcodes for all Canadian Arctic plants. The objectives on Victoria Island in...

This licence is being issued for the scientific research application No. 1067.
The short-term goal of this project is to interview elders and document their TEK (with the assistance of plant ecology summer students) by identifying where these sites are located and the long- term objectives is to monitor these sites for future reference and preservation.
ADKFN will accomplish their resear...
Principal Investigator:Wunderlich, Nicole B Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this study is to determine if the plant community composition of seeded and unseeded disturbances in the Mackenzie Delta is similar to the undisturbed tundra. This comparison may help determine best practices of recovery for native vegetation to use in future oil and gas projects in the region. The vegetation data will be collected using non-destructive methods including species p...
Principal Investigator:Oldham, Micheal Licenced Year(s):
Indigenous rare plants exist in the NWT, including in parts of the Mackenzie Mountains and the Beaufort Sea coast (especially in areas that were not glaciated). Alien species may be spreading along roads. There are 94 species of alien plants, transported to the territories by human activity.
Surveys pf alien and rare plants will be conducted along roads in the North, South Slave and DehCho reg...
Principal Investigator:Aiken, Susan Licenced Year(s):
The research team will be based in Tuktoyaktuk, and travel by scheduled flight from Inuvik. No field camps will be used, and all transport in the field will be on foot. Data will be collected primarily through photographic documentation of both the plants of interest, and the typical environments in which these plants are found. A single voucher specimen of each plant photographed will be mainta...
Principal Investigator:Raillard, Martin Licenced Year(s):
This project will take place in Tuktuk Nogait National Park in 1998 and 1999. The objective of the project is to map the vegetation of the park. As many areas of the Park as possible will be hiked and the various vegetation communities along the hiking route will be put into one of several classes, and their exact geographical location recorded. Once the field season is over, these various geograp...
Principal Investigator:Quinlan, Allyson Licenced Year(s):
The principle researcher and one (or two) field assistants will be flown into Hook Lake base camp by either helicopter or fixed wing aircraft (transportation and field support confirmed by Renewable Resources, NWT). Temporary vegetation (herbaceous) transects will be established on the following prairies in the Hook Lake area: Dan's Prairie, North Prairie, Paul's Prairie, Ann's Prairie, Hook Lake ...
