Northern Native Seed Development Field Trials
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this sub-project is to continue assessing the performance of native plants which were seeded and transplanted into field plots in 2006 and 2007. The research team intends to collect data regarding winter survival, seedling emergence, and overall plant vigour and productivity in order to assess each species' and collection's suitability for use in land reclamation in the NWT. T...


2007 Canada Western Arctic Germplasm Collection
Principal Investigator: Wright, Stoney J
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The primary objective of the fieldwork is to collect small samples of seed from grass species in six primary Genera: Festuca, Poa, Deschampsis, Leymus, Elymus and Alopecurus. Other species may be collected. Wild mustard species (Crucifer species) will also be collected. The collections will be compared visually and genetically to other collections of the same or closely related species from Alaska...


Northern Native Plant Development Collections in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Seccombe-Hett, Pippa
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The need for this project arises from the increased industrial development across the Northwest Territories and the necessity to reclaim and revegetate the land during development or upon abandonment. Northern environments are particularly slow to recover from disturbance because of the short growing season and the extreme environmental conditions. The use of agronomic species can out-compete nati...


Northern Native Plant Development for Reclamation and Revegetation in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Crossman, Bill
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective of the project is to develop technologies to propagate and cultivate native plant species. The main aim is for these species to become available for commercial production and used in revegetation in the Northwest Territories. The need for native plant seed for revegetation has been identified due to increased industrial development in the territory and the need to improve land reclam...


NWT Diamonds Project: Revegetation Research
Principal Investigator: Davis, Luci
Licenced Year(s): 1996 1995
Summary: The information from this project will be used for fututre reclamation planning. This is the intitial phase of a long term study for BHP. The study will be designed for statistical validation. The study area will be monitored and the data will be summarized in an annual report....


Trace-Element Air Pollution Monitoring in the Coppermine River Area and Reproduction Strategies of "Picea mariana and Picea glauca" (Black and White Spruce) Along the Arctic Treeline as Early Indicators of Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Gould, William
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The research involves the collection of lichens and spruce tree seed and pollen for analysis. The researchers will analyze the lichen samples for pollutants and will study the seed and pollen collections as part of a climate change study....


Experimental Plantings and the Establishment of a Research Transplant Garden in the Grounds of Arctic College, Iqaluit
Principal Investigator: Aiken, Susan
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher will test some very standard agriculture seeds that have been developed in Alberta to determine whether they will grow in test plots in Iqaluit and Lake Harbour. She will also identify areas across the NWT which may be suitable as long term climatic change monitoring sites....


Effect of Muskox Grazing on "Oxytropis glutinosa"
Principal Investigator: Harmsen, R
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher and his team will collect data on plant size, flowering, seed production, survival and for greenhouse germination experiments. Wire enclosures set up in the previous summer will be remapped....


Apical Dominance and Growth Form in Herbaceous Sub-Arctic Plants
Principal Investigator: Vardy, Catherine
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher will survey growth forms at two sites: one highly disturbed (i.e. a roadside) and one undisturbed site ( i.e. a field). The plants will be measured and a shoot removed from approximately 20-100 plants. Seeds will be collected....


Carbon Allocation in the Arctic Poppy
Principal Investigator: Corbett, Andrea
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher will supply Carbon-14 to leaves and flowers of the Arctic Poppy. The plants will be harvested and parts treated to determine where the carbon was allocated....
