Hybridization and genetic variation in arctic grasses: molecular, morphological and ecological evidence
Principal Investigator: Gillespie, Lynn J.
Licensed Year(s): 1997 1995 1994
Summary: The researcher will collect living plants (Arctic grasses), 6 - 10 species from each collection site. In addition, several plants of each species will be pressed and dried as voucher specimens to be used to check the identification. Photographs of the plants and their habitats will be made. In Ottawa, variations in DNA among different populations and species will be analyzed to study species re...

Grasses of the NWT
Principal Investigator: Aiken, Susan
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The researcher will continue her study on NWT grasses. She will collect living plants in order to conduct chemical analyses on the plant tissue. These tests will help to identify different species of grasses (especially those that look very similar) and also help to determine where these species originated from. In addition, the researcher has small experiments on grass being conducted by staff...
