Ethnobotany of North Baffin Island Inuit: Native Knowledge of Plant Resources in Kangaqlugaapik, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Borre, Kristen
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researchers will collect samples of plants Inuit indicate are important to their lives, including nutritional, economic, ecological, social, cultural and religious importance. The uses and meaning of the plants and the land on which they grow will be discussed with Inuit and recorded. The way in which Inuit think about plants and how they use them will be analyzed....


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: The researcher and his team will continue the study of the evolution of plants and climate in the very high latitudes, and will continue to assemble an extensive collection of fossil plants from northern Canada....


Grasses of the NWT
Principal Investigator: Aiken, Susan
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The researcher and her team will collect living plants from a 1 km area collection site. Populations will be collected and taken to Ottawa for analysis. This will be a continuation of field work that took place in 1991....


Early Quaternary and Late Tertiary Geology and Geomorphology, Arctic Islands.
Principal Investigator: Fyles, John G.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researcher will revisit the "beaver peat" locality and will measure, describe, photograph and sample the exposed peaty material in greater detail than before. A detailed search will be made for fossil bones and beaver-gnawed sticks, as well as for additional fossils. Other sites where similar substrates containing fossil wood or other plant materials will also be visited (or revisited)....


Northwest Passage Expedition
Principal Investigator: Viren, Tom
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: Mr. Lonnie Dupre, Mr. Malcolm Vance and Mr. Jon Nierenburg will collect snow and plant material samples on behalf of Mr. Derik Muir, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Canada and Mr. Dan Jaffe, Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska, Fairbanks....


Hierachy of Stress Tolerance for Flowering Plants in Extreme Polar Desert and Secondary Metobolites in Prostrate Willows in Sverdrup Pass, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Svoboda, Josef
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1988 1987
Summary: The Researcher will continue an ongoing program in Sverdrup Pass: Ecology of polar oases. The study will assist in understanding the origin, development, maintenance and future of these isolated ecosystems in the midst of a polar desert....


Inter-relationships Between Internally Feeding Insects and Species "Pedicularis" in the High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Meier, Sharon
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher will continue to study plant-insect relationships and factors which play determining roles in the lives of organisms inhabiting the Arctic environment....


Paleoecological and Geological Study of the Isortoq River and Flitaway Lake, Baffin Island; Collection of Arctic Coleoptera
Principal Investigator: Morgan, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and team will take samples of organic sediments and process them to remove insect and plant fossils. Identification of these fossils will provide the basis for a paleoenvironmental analysis by comparing the fossil organisms to modern ones....


To Study the Role of Alternative Pathway Respiration in Arctic Plants
Principal Investigator: Cummins, W. Raymond
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990 1989
Summary: Professor Cummins and his team will estimate potential productivity of plants in northern ecosystems and will investigate further the exceptionally high rate of respiration and alternative pathway respiration which they have discovered in arctic plants. They will use nitrate and ammonium electrodes to survey the levels of available nitrogen in wet and dry meadows on Devon...
