Northern Native Plant Development Collections in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2007 2006
Summary: Despite the recognition of the ecological benefits carried by the use of native plant seeds in reclamation, there is still no commercial source of plant materials native to the NWT or Canada’s north. Even finding southern cultivars of local species is a significant challenge. In response to this, Aurora Research Institute (ARI) initiated the NWT Native Seed Development Program, its objective being...

Northern Native Seed Development Field Trials
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this sub-project are: 1) to continue assessing the performance of native plants which were seeded and transplanted into field plots in 2006 and 2007; and, 2) to establish two new field plots at the Inuvik golf course with the same intent of monitoring native seed performance in a disturbed habitat. The research team intend to collect data regarding winter survival, seedling e...

Reclamation of Disturbed Sites Research at Diavik Diamond Mine, NWT
Principal Investigator: Naeth, M. Anne
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2009 2008 2005
Summary: The overall research goal is to determine appropriate methods to restore disturbed sites at Diavik Diamond Mine to productive and sustainable tundra communities following mine closure. There are three main research areas 1) building suitable reclamation substrates for plant establishment and growth, 2) methods of collection and propagation of locally common native plant and lichen species, and 3) ...

Nahanni Aster Status Report
Principal Investigator: Harris, Allan G
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objective of this research project is to conduct fieldwork to determine the population size, distribution, and habitat of Nahanni Aster. Fieldwork will involve helicopter access to hotspring habitats. Presence/absence of Nahanni Aster will be recorded, stems counts will be conducted, and habitat and potential threats will be described. There are possible opportunities to promote the Nahanni ...

Ecological Assessment Field Work for Lue Túé Sulái (the Five Fish Lakes) Candidate Cultural Conservation Area
Principal Investigator: Haas, Claudia A
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: This project is to fill gaps in ecological information on a Candidate Protected Area while it makes its way through the NWT Protected Areas Strategy (PAS) process. This information will be used by the working group to make recommendations on final boundary and management planning for the area. The study will be done at the same time as a study on mercury in fish being conducted by the Dehcho F...

Population Inventory of Hairy Rockcress (Braya pilosa): NWT’s rarest species of global importance
Principal Investigator: Carriere, Suzanne
Licensed Year(s): 2011
Summary: The focus of this study will be to determining the area of occupancy of the plant Hairy Rockcress (Braya pilosa) in the NWT, the habitat requirements of the species, to collect viable seeds for genetic studies and potential rescue of genetic material if extinction is imminent, and to estimate the rates of shore loss for each sub-population. Ground surveys will be conducted within walking or bo...

The role of aquatic and terrestrial vegetation in controlling the mobility of arsenic and other metals in northern environments
Principal Investigator: Stephen, Celsian C
Licensed Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objective of this project is to enhance our understanding of the controls on the mobility of metal contaminants in mine-impacted environments. More specifically, to enhance our understanding of the role terrestrial and aquatic plants play in sequestering mine-contaminants such as arsenic, antimony, copper, lead and zinc. The field methods for this program consist of a soil and vegetation...

Phytoremediation Study on the CDN Forest et al Nota Creek C-17 Wellsite
Principal Investigator: Budziak, Jerry
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: To continue with phytoremediation planting on the Nota Creek C-17 well site. Additional plantings are necessary to determine the efficiency of the phytoremediation program and to further assess its viability as a remediation strategy for the well site. The full well site will be planted in 2010. Access to the site will be by helicopter. Planting is planned for early June. Site monitoring and ev...
