Responses of Circumpolar Plant Species and Their Communities To Simulated Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Henry, Greg H R
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: Researchers have established field experiments in 5 plant communities to simulate climate change scenarios (i) no change; (ii) warmer, longer seasons with earlier snow melt; (iii) warmer growing seasons with later snow melt. The temperatures are increased in small open-topped greenhouses and the date of snow melt is changed by adding or removing snow. Tagged plants of the major vascular plant spec...

Canadian Intersite Decomposition Experiment
Principal Investigator: Wein, Ross
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: Forestry researchers tend to study in detail their local forests yet for major issues such as global warming, it is necessary to conduct research over larger areas to understand impacts on Canadian forests and industry. This study attempts to better describe rates of decomposition and nutrient mineralization across Canadian forests in order to understand how forests are supplied with nutrients fo...

Holocene Bowhead Whale (Balaena mysticetus) Skeletal Morphometrics and Taphonomy in the Eastern Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Savelle, James M.
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1990
Summary: The Researcher will record and measure whale bones from naturally stranded bowhead whales. The information will be used to assist in determining the effects of climatic change on bowhead whale populations over the last 10,500 years....

Licence #2617
Principal Investigator: Nosko, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 1980
Summary: To undertake a study of the nitrogen decomposition ability of a large quantity of bacteria located around the roots of High Arctic plants. This phenomenon may explain plant growth in polar desert regions....

Licence #2455
Principal Investigator: Sutcliffe, Antony J.
Licensed Year(s): 1979
Summary: To study the rates of bone decay using samples of animal bones that are found on the surface> To examine the principal causes of bone decay (e.g. freezing and thawing, mosses and lichesn). To make a study of the ages of bones taken from different locations....
