A Coastal, Pan-Canadian Collection of Plants, Microalgae, and Marine Invertebrates for the Canadian Museum of Nature
Principal Investigator: Graham, Mark S
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The goal of this work is to assemble a representative collection of marine invertebrates, vascular plants, lichens, mosses, liverworts and aquatic, microscopic algae for research and educational purposes at the national museum (the Canadian Museum of Nature). Specimens will be used in ongoing research projects at the Canadian Museum of Nature, focused on the biodiversity of the vascular plant, lic...

Changes in plant communities from subarctic forest to tundra
Principal Investigator: Henry, Gregory H.R.
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994 1993 1991
Summary: This study continues from the research conducted in 1991 where we examined the plant community and assessed plant distribution as the subarctic forest changes to tundra. We are interested in how the smaller plant species are influenced by changes in the number of trees that are nearby as well as changes in climate. Permanent plots will be established in order to monitor any changes in the plant ...

Effects of Predicted Climate Change on High Arctic Plants
Principal Investigator: Henry, Gregory H.R.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The researcher and his team will use simple experiments in the field to simulate the warming climate, and then measure how the timing of the life cycle events (phenology) and growth of each species is affected....

Evolution of High-Latitude Floras
Principal Investigator: Basinger, James F.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1989 1988 1987
Summary: Begun in 1985, this project will continue the study of plant evolution in high latitudes and the exploration for fossils in rocks of the Eureka Sound Group of Axel Heiberg and Ellesmere Islands. This season the field work will expand to Strathcona Fiord area and to east central Axel Heiberg Island. This information is used in the interpretation of global climatic change and the evolution of temper...
