Global monograph of the Hymenogastraceae family
Principal Investigator: Davies, Linda L
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project are to study the diversity and distribution of the genus Hebeloma at the global level; and, to assemble a more complete phylogeny of Hebeloma and of the family Hymenogastraceae that will in turn further understanding of the evolution and development of characters in this family. The research team will survey local areas to look for basidiomes of the genus Hebeloma...


Non-toxic arsenic in mushrooms and plants from Yellowknife
Principal Investigator: Reimer, Kenneth J.
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objectives of this research is to: determine total arsenic and arsenic species in edible and non-edible mushrooms from contaminated and uncontaminated locations (mine properties and roadsides/parks); determine total arsenic and arsenic species in plants including Labrador tea, horsetails, buffaloberry, fireweed and berries (if available) from contaminated and uncontaminated locations (mine pro...


Ecological Structure of Northern Arthropods: Adaptation to a Changing Environment
Principal Investigator: Buddle, Chris
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: (1) To test how and to what degree the structure of arthropod communities changes between the northern boreal (Norman Wells and Yellowknife, NT), sub arctic (Ogilvie Mountains, YT, and Kugluktuk, NU), and high arctic (Aulavik National Park, NT, and Cambridge Bay, NU) zones. This will provide a contemporary geographic profile of species and group distri...


Past and future fire dynamics: implications for central arctic caribou and dependent communities (Community based component)
Principal Investigator: Jacobsen, Petter F
Licensed Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application No.1294. The research is part of the larger research project on the correlation between increased forest fires and decreasing caribou population in the Northwest Territories. The intent is to record TEK concerning environments rebounding from forest fires, the correlation between these areas and the caribou population,...


Caribou impact assessment and monitoring guidelines
Principal Investigator: Lines, Stephen A
Licensed Year(s): 2007
Summary: The objective of this research is to develop, using an ecology based approach, scientifically rigorous guidelines for impact assessment and monitoring of caribou for the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board and Nunavut Impact Review Board (the Boards). This is being done so that the information collected by proponents allows for more reliable differentiation between natural varia...


Surveys of Rare and Exotic Plants in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Oldham, Micheal
Licensed Year(s): 2006
Summary: Indigenous rare plants exist in the NWT, including in parts of the Mackenzie Mountains and the Beaufort Sea coast (especially in areas that were not glaciated). Alien species may be spreading along roads. There are 94 species of alien plants, transported to the territories by human activity. Surveys pf alien and rare plants will be conducted along roads in the North, South Slave and DehCho reg...


Butterfly Inventory in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Layberry, Ross
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: Butterflies are easily studied and can provide valuable information of changes occuring in northern ecosystems - including climate changes, and habitat changes. Many areas of the NWT have few studies on insects; therefore, this inventory work can inprove the baseline information of these species. The main investigator will travel with other NWT biologists to remote study sites and near comm...


Environment Adaptation in Arctic Aquatic Organisms
Principal Investigator: Ballantyne, James
Licensed Year(s): 2000
Summary: This project will examine the adaptation of freshwater fish to low temperatures. The data to be collected includes blood and tissue samples from fish. These samples will be analyzed for enzymes, fats and proteins. These results will be compared to samples taken from other locations (e.g. Nunavut, southern waters). This work will provide important information relating the sensitivity of Arctic ...


Studies on the past, present and future ecological impact on Canadian northern boreal forest and arctic ecosystems due to mining activities, shown at the Great Slave Lake area, Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: Steinecke, Karin
Licensed Year(s): 1998 1997
Summary: The project will focus on understanding, analyzing and evaluating the reactions of the northern boreal forest ecosystems in the Great Slave Lake region due to man made stress of mining, settlement and connecting activities. The project will try to develop some general conclusions, statements and model systems. The research team (2 persons) will come from Europe to Yellowknife by plane. The base wi...


The molecular population genetics of the arctic-alpine ground-beetle species Amara alpina
Principal Investigator: Schwert, Donald P.
Licensed Year(s): 1995 1992
Summary: The sample of arctic-alpine ground-beetles will be collected under rocks and by pitfall traps (dixie cups placed in 8 cm diameter drilled holes) in the tundra habitat. All rocks will be replaced exactly and pitfall trap holes refilled with their soil plugs. No chemicals will be used in any of the trapping or collecting. Specimens will be analysed using DNA techniques which include RLPF's and PC...
