Studies of the environmental effects of disturbances in the subarctic (SEEDS)
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The main study objective is to describe post-fire ecosystem responses in a subarctic forest. Access to the site will be along existing seismic lines from Tulita. Transport will involve helicopter, boat, ATV and foot. The research camp consists of tents on frames and on platforms and a food and equipment cache contained within a solar-powered electric shock fence (bear fence). Sleeping tents are o...


Forestry Research in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Walker-Larsen, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Forest Fire Effects on Vegetation and Wildlife Habitat use: Research sites will be accessed by helicopter. Sites are located in burns of different ages. In the summer, small teams will complete vegetation plots, assess species composition and percent cover, and assess wildlife abundance. In the winter, helicopter track surveys will be completed. Forest Monitoring (ARNEWS and SI/MAB plots): The...


Post-fire decomposition of woody material and post-fire habitat structures in the western Canadian boreal forest.
Principal Investigator: Sander, Barbara
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: Burned areas of different ages have been identified from fire-history maps and data bases provided by the Forest Management Division of the NWT in Fort Smith. Chosen fires are located along the Highways 1, 2 and 5. Access and transportation will therefore be by car/truck. The exact location of the sites will be documented by using GPS-equipment. A total of three sites (Jack Pine, Black Spruce ...


Modelling the establishment and growth of post-fire tree seedlings
Principal Investigator: Gal, Ruth Ann
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: As a result of global warming (which results from increased amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere), it is suggested that the number of forest fires and the amount of area burned may increase in the northern boreal forests. The types of trees that grow first in these burned areas may be different from those that would have grown in if the climate was cooler. I will collect data at burn site...


Climate Change at the Forest/Tundra Boundary
Principal Investigator: Landhaeusser, Simon M.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher will study regions of past burned areas south and north of Inuvik to determine if post-fire spruce establishment has occured not only on areas formally dominated by spruce, but also on larger areas that were formerly tundra....


Re-evaluation of Disturbance Experiments in the Lower Mackenzie Region, NWT
Principal Investigator: Wein, Ross
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1989 1988 1987
Summary: In the early 1970's, several test plots were established to see what happens when the plants and soil are disturbed or removed by fire, oil spills, and vehicles. Dr. Wein and two students will be re-visiting these sites to document how the plants have recovered since that time....


Effects of fire on plants, animals and human land use
Principal Investigator: Wein, Ross
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To gather information on fire behaviour, the effects of fire on plants and animals, and the social implications of fire management. Satellite imagery processing, aerial photography and ground censusing will be used....


Licence #2139
Principal Investigator: Rowe, J.S.
Licenced Year(s): 1977
Summary: To analyze and correlate fire and climatic records to determine the patterns of change after fire, and to determine the frequency with which fires recur....


Licence #1990
Principal Investigator: Johnson, Edward A.
Licenced Year(s): 1976
Summary: To explore the role of fire in the sub-arctic ecosystem. Starting in 1976 and continuing for two years studies will be related to: 1) a biophysical land classification system, 2) peatland vegetation change, 3) regulation of nutrient losses in the sub-arctic ecosystem, and 4) paleoecology....


Licence #1896
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, K.
Licenced Year(s): 1975
Summary: To determine how plant communities in the northern boreal forest respond to burning or to protection from burning, their rate of recovery and the factors governing the recovery process, for Arctic Land Use Research Program....
