Structure, Carbon Dynamics, and Silvichronology of Boreal Forests
Principal Investigator: Osawa, Akira
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: Main objective of the field work is to collect data in jack pine and black spruce forests on annual movement of organic matter and carbon. Additional objective is to conduct a regional study of stand development and its relationship to environmental factors in a several-square-kilometer study area of mostly black spruce. Five methods will be used. 1) Soil and air temperature will be measured...

Near-surface ground ice in sediments of the Mackenzie Delta region, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 2000 1999
Summary: This project investigates the the distribution and amount of near-surface ice in sediments of the Mackenzie delta area near Inuvik. Sites near Inuvik will be accessed via road and sampled using a hand held power auger. Soil cores will be removed and taken to the Inuvik Research Center for subsequent examination. The thickness of permafrost will be measured by near-surface water jet drilling which ...

Distribution of Dark-Celled Fungal Root Endophytes Along an Arctic to Boreal Latitudinal Gradient
Principal Investigator: Piercey, Melissa
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: Roots of plants inhabiting cold-stressed environments are often colonized by vegetatively reproducing fungi. The researcher will examine the genetic variation within and among populations of Phialocephala fortinii P. along a latitudinal gradient encompassing the boreal, subarctic and arctic zones in Northern Canada. The researcher will travel from Yellowknife to 3 study sites surrounding Great ...

Licence #2617
Principal Investigator: Nosko, Peter
Licenced Year(s): 1980
Summary: To undertake a study of the nitrogen decomposition ability of a large quantity of bacteria located around the roots of High Arctic plants. This phenomenon may explain plant growth in polar desert regions....
