The purpose of this three-year project is to identify the factors that promote or retard forest regrowth after seismic line cutting. Oil and gas development in the Mackenzie Valley has the potential to heavily impact the region's slow-growing forests....
Principal Investigator:Walker-Larsen, Jennifer Licenced Year(s):
Baseline data on the rate at which trees grow (productivity) and the time required for trees to re-establish (regeneration) following fires and human disturbances are required to determine forest sustainability and to understand how habitat changes over...

The aim of projects 1 and 2 is to learn how plants returned to the arctic following the retreat of the ice sheet that covered Ellesmere Island some 8000 years ago. This research will also help to determine what effect climate warming will have for the plant communities of the high arctic. Project 3 will involve the filming of plant life in the high arctic. Project 4 is part of an on-going study...
Principal Investigator:Pearce, Cheryl M. Licenced Year(s):
To analyze the environmental processes that control plant distribution and succession on shorelines of the Mackenzie Delta. Specific objectives of the research are to examine (1) the colonization and establishment on exposed mudflats and other newly-available sites, (2) the responses of the shoreline plants to fluctuations in the biophysical environment, and (3) the chemical and physical properti...
