Beaufort Sea Coastal Restoration – Exploring the Potential for Using Indigenous Plant Species to Revegetate Coastline Affected by Permafrost Thaw Slumping
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The objectives include: 1) Creating a series of maps showing the thaw slump activity along the Beaufort Sea Coast near Tuktoyaktuk; 2) developing detailed water, vegetation, and ground temperature maps of the study sites using drones; 3) examining the effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of landscape-level runoff to the Beaufort Sea; 4) examining the effects of coastal erosion and thaw ...

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...

Diamond Mine Reclamation in the NWT: Substrates, Soil Amendments and Native Plant Community Development
Principal Investigator: Naeth, M. Anne
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2009 2008 2005
Summary: The objectives of this research are to: 1. Native shrub establishment: Determine the effect of season of seeding/planting on shrub establishment and survival. 2. Effect of microtopography: Determine the effect of microsites (boulders, rocks, soil mounds and pockets) on plant emergence and establishment, as well as how they influence soil structure. 3. Effect of stockpiled topsoil: Investigate t...

Botanical collecting - Dempster Highway and Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Darnell, David M.
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application No.1095. The objective of this research is to obtain specimens of the major plant species comprising the plant communities found in the northwestern Northwest Territories, especially those riparian ones not found in the adjacent Yukon Territory. The researchers will employ standard botanical field techniques and equipment...

Northern Native Plant Development in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Seccombe-Hett, Pippa
Licensed Year(s): 2006
Summary: The main activities in this program are: 1) forming a project steering committee involving industry, aboriginal groups and government; 2) identifying plant species suitable for revegetation; 3) developing practices for commercial production; and 4) identifying employment opportunities. Seed collection will be carried out in late August through to mid-September. Sites will be accessed by boat an...

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...

2006 Canada Western Arctic Germplasm Collection
Principal Investigator: Wright, Stoney J
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The primary objective is to collect small samples of seed from grass species in six primary Genera: Festuca, Poa, Deschampsis, Leymus, Elymus and Alopecurus. Other species may be collected. Wild mustard species (Crucifer species) will also be collected. The collections will be compared visually and genetically to other collections of the same or closely related species from Alaska and other circum...

Northern Native Plant Development for Reclamation and Revegetation in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Crossman, Bill
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective of the project is to develop technologies to propagate and cultivate native plant species. The main aim is for these species to become available for commercial production and used in revegetation in the Northwest Territories. The need for native plant seed for revegetation has been identified due to increased industrial development in the territory and the need to improve land reclam...

Flora of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago
Principal Investigator: Aiken, Susan
Licensed Year(s): 2001 1999
Summary: The research team will be based in Tuktoyaktuk, and travel by scheduled flight from Inuvik. No field camps will be used, and all transport in the field will be on foot. Data will be collected primarily through photographic documentation of both the plants of interest, and the typical environments in which these plants are found. A single voucher specimen of each plant photographed will be mainta...
