A spatial Analysis of the Raised Beach Ecosystem, Truelove Lowland, Devon Island, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Cheryl M.
Licenced Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: To investigate the spatial and temporal relationships between plant species distribution and beach age on Truelove Lowland, Devon Island. To measure plant composition and spatial variability on different sites on a raised beach and on raised beaches of different ages from the most recent to the oldest and (2) to correlate vegetation parameters with site factors such as soil texture, macro-nutrien...

A biosystematic treatment of the Potentiall nivea L. complex in North America.
Principal Investigator: Marvin, LuDean
Licenced Year(s): 1987
Summary: To re-define the classification of the Potentilla nivea L. complex using methods based on modern plant systematics. Some of the techniques and methods to be used will include chromosome counts, pollen and seed viability tests, guard cell measurements, SEM of pollin exine variations, flavonoid chemistry and numerical analyses. Attempts will be made to determine if correlations exist between morph...
