The objective of this sub-project is to continue assessing the performance of native plants which were seeded and transplanted into field plots in 2006 and 2007. The research team intend to collect data regarding winter survival, seedling emergence, and overall plant vigor and productivity in order to assess each species' and collection's suitability for use in land reclamation in the NWT.

This licence is issued for the scientific research application # 876.
The objective of this research is to determine the impacts of predicted soil warming scenarios for the arctic on the availability of phosphate, nitrate-nitrogen and ammonium, which are important soil nutrients.
The field portion of this research will consist of two weeks of collecting soil data and gauging and sampling (f...
Principal Investigator:Fehr, Alan Licenced Year(s):
Elders, students and researchers will work together to document the food value and medicinal use of plants. Each month, elders from each community (Aklavik, Fort McPherson, Inuvik and Tsiigehtchic) will spend two days collecting and preserving plants. The students and researchers will assist them, plus photograph the plants and record Elder's comments about each plant. After each field trip the...

As part of overall reclamation goals of BHP, the 1996 season will focus on three components. Vegetation response will be assessed in August using the point-frame method. Within the legume, indigenous seed and shrub cutting plots, plant density will be recorded. Soil samples in replicates of three will be collected from each treatment to analyze physical and chemical characteristics. Secondly, ...

The researchers want to determine the age of the isolated "tree islands" and how they manage to grow so far from the treeline. Researchers look for old stems for carbon dating, and map the position of each stem. The age and growth rates of the trees are determined by counting and measuring tree-rings. This year plant communities found on south-facing slopes down the Anderson River will be studied....
Principal Investigator:Hermanutz, Luise Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will investigate the factors that govern the growth and reproduction of 2 types of willow on Baffin Island. She will compare the numbers of seeds each species produces and attempt to determine how successful male clones are in producing offspring....
Principal Investigator:Roy, Alain P. Licenced Year(s):1990
Mr. Roy will carry out field work at two different sites, specifically, Macmillan Pass and Tungsten. At each site he will examine two main items, the vegetation and the soil Dryas specimens will be collected, he will examine the other plants of the community and a small soil sample approximately 200 grams will be taken....
Principal Investigator:Pearce, Cheryl M. Licenced Year(s):
Dr. Pearce and her associate are returning to Truelove Lowland to evaluate an idea that plant associations growing on raised beaches of different ages are a result of the type of soil and water conditions they are growing on rather than the amount of time that they have had to live there....
Principal Investigator:Henry, Gregory H.R. Licenced Year(s):
Some Arctic plants are found in almost every type of habitat, from wet meadows to dry gravel areas. Dr. Henry, Dr. Zilder and several students are looking at these plants to see how that is possible....
Principal Investigator:Brodo, Irwin Licenced Year(s):
Dr. Brodo and two students (Mr. Lutzoni and Mr. Proulx) will be collecting and identifying lichens from different parts of the NWT. If there are differences, they want to know why....
