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.
Principal Investigator:Wright, Stoney J Licenced Year(s):
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...

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...
Principal Investigator:Crossman, Bill Licenced Year(s):
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...

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....
Principal Investigator:Gould, William Licenced Year(s):19941993
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....
Principal Investigator:Aiken, Susan Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Harmsen, R Licenced Year(s):1991
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....
Principal Investigator:Vardy, Catherine Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Corbett, Andrea Licenced Year(s):
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....
