Community-based evaluation of muskox health in the Canadian North
Principal Investigator: Kutz, Susan M.
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to integrate traditional ecological knowledge and western scientific methodology to investigate the impact of diseases and climate change on muskox population dynamics and evaluate how local community knowledge can be formally incorporated into wildlife monitoring, health policy, and management. The research will be done simultaneously in two communities in the ...

Community Based Qiviuq Collection
Principal Investigator: Lucas, John Sr.
Licensed Year(s): 2007
Summary: The goals of this project are to investigate ways of introducing man-made items into muskox habitat with minimal disturbance; test if wild muskox will physically interact with a man made addition to their habitat; test the efficacy of muskombs to collect qiviuq; present this scheme to Inuvialuit groups for the purpose of developing a qiviuq industry. Maskombs were built at the ARI, shipped to S...

Qiviuq Collection
Principal Investigator: Katz, Sharon
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objectives of the research are to: investigate ways of introducing man-made items into musk ox habitat with minimal disturbance; observe if wild musk oxen will physically interact with a man-made addition to their habitat; test the efficacy of the “muskombs” (scratching posts for musk oxen); and collect qiviuq (musk ox down wool). The results of this research will be presented to Inuvialuit gr...

Muskoxen-sedge meadow interactions
Principal Investigator: Smith, David L.
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: This study will address the impact that muskoxen are having on sedge meadows (the habitat that is important for their survival in the Thomsen River valley). In this study, I will examine the response of sedge meadow plants to the effects of grazing by muskoxen. I will monitoring the growth and chemical makeup of plants in 3 situations: (1) unprotected plots subject to muskoxen grazing; (2) artif...

The Impacts of Muskoxen on a Hygric Sedge Meadow Plant Community, Northern Banks Island, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Romo, J.T.
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The project examines the effects of a high-density muskoxen populations on a sedge meadow plant community. Two fences exist at the study site to exclude muskoxen and thus provide an ungrazed area used for comparison with the grazed area. Plant species abundance, plant height, grazing use of plant species and weight of plants are some of the data that will be compared among grazed and ungrazed are...

Effect of Muskox Grazing On Arctic Range Vegetation
Principal Investigator: Harmsen, R.
Licensed Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher and team will continue to study the relationship between muskoxen and the plants they eat. Since 1987 the effect of muskox grazing on arctic vetch plants has been studied. Investigations of a large number of vetch plants will include calculations on mortality rates, growth rates and renewal through seed....

Muskox habitat use, periglacial landforms, and plant community associations of Sverdrup Pass (Ellesmere Island); Plant succession in the polar desert (Devon Island)
Principal Investigator: Svoboda, Joseph
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1988 1987
Summary: to determine number and habitat use of muskox herds in Sverdrup Pass; to assess effects of muskox grazing on vegetation; to determine grazing intensity of muskox on vegetation in area; to establish origin of periglacial landforms in area and their effect on plant community development; to investigate plant succession in a polar desert on Devon Island....
