Tree Regeneration on Seismic Lines
Principal Investigator: Greene, David F
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: 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....

Forestry Research Projects in the Gwich'in Settlement Area: 1. Seismic Line Revegetation in the GSA
Principal Investigator: Walker-Larsen, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: 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...

1. Hierarchy of stress tolerance for flowering plants in extreme polar desert. 2. Initial phase of primary succession following glacial retreat. 3. Life of plants in extreme environments. 4. Baker Lake experiment.
Principal Investigator: Svoboda, Josef
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1988 1987
Summary: 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...

Vegetation Dynamics on Shorelines of Mackenzie Delta, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Cheryl M.
Licenced Year(s): 1987
Summary: 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...
