Winter Flow Regime and Icing Dynamics of Tundra Streams near the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway
Principal Investigator: Ensom, Timothy P
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The specific objectives of the project are as follows: 1)Determine the spatial extent, distribution, and timing of winter icing events in streams along the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway through ground-based and aerial reconnaissance of stream crossings; 2)Identify relations between physical watershed characteristics and icing dynamics through field observations and analyses of watercourse and ca...


Forest Ecotone Experiment
Principal Investigator: Eitel, Jan
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The overarching objective of the study is to integrate light detection and ranging (LiDAR), passive spectral, and tree ecophysiological data to link biophysical structure to ecological function in the Forest Tundra Ecotone. In so doing, the research team will be able to remotely assess the vulnerability and resilience of the forest tundra ecotone (FTE) to environmental change. The field work wi...


Invasive Species Survey of Proposed Prairie Creek Mine All Season Road
Principal Investigator: McLenaghan, Amy
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The goal of this project is to identify invasive plant species on portions of the proposed Prairie Creek all season road from the Liard Highway to the Prairie Creek mine to support environmental approval as per the Mackenzie Valley Review Board’s Report of Environmental Assessment. Walking and driving surveys will be employed as described in the report on the 2016 Survey of Exotic Plants along ...


A Coastal, Pan-Canadian Collection of Plants, Microalgae, and Marine Invertebrates for the Canadian Museum of Nature
Principal Investigator: Graham, Mark S
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: The goal of this work is to assemble a representative collection of marine invertebrates, vascular plants, lichens, mosses, liverworts and aquatic, microscopic algae for research and educational purposes at the national museum (the Canadian Museum of Nature). Specimens will be used in ongoing research projects at the Canadian Museum of Nature, focused on the biodiversity of the vascular plant, lic...


A comparative analysis of Acorus Americanus and Acorus Calamus and their application in Traditional aboriginal medicine
Principal Investigator: Labine, Nicole K
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: The objective of this research is to identify the active/medicinal components of the Acorus Americanus and Acorus calamus, both herbs in the NWT. Traditional knowledge of these plant shows that they were used very similarly including to treat asthma. Samples of A. americanus and the putative A. calamus have been harvested under the guidance of an elder, who is a traditional knowledge holder lo...


Developing Options for Community-based Protocols to Detect Invasive Alien Plants and Insects in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Bazely, Dawn R
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: This licence is issued for the scientific research application #923. The main objectives of this project are 1) to consult with communities about their views of community-based protocols for monitoring and reporting the presence and spread of introduced plant and insect species to the territorial government; 2) to determine community interest in developing or expanding local agricultural oppor...


Northern Native Seed Development Greenhouse and Field Trials
Principal Investigator: Wenghofer, Kristen
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to conduct initial greenhouse and field trials in propagating seed from native plant species. This will allow the researchers to measure the growth and productivity of a number of different plant species and evaluate their potential as species for reclamation in the Inuvik region. The project activities include germination, growth and field trials for tw...


Biophysical Study-Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Komers, Petr
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: Eleven plant species of national significance are found in the Mackenzie Delta. Following a preliminary classification using satellite images, the presence or absence of these species within sample areas will be determined during field surveys. After field data are collected, a more refined landscape classification model will be produced. To refine and test this model, 30 sites per vegetation com...


Constraints To Ecosystem Development in High Arctic Polar Deserts
Principal Investigator: Bliss, Lawrence
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: We seek to better understand how ecosystems develop in the high arctic following retreat of ice caps. This includes studies of soil development and the influence that rocks play in this as well as studying the development of block crusts of organisms that form on the soil surface. We will also try to understand the role these crusts play in fixing nitrogen and influencing the development of flower...


Changes in plant communities from subarctic forest to tundra
Principal Investigator: Henry, Gregory H.R.
Licensed Year(s): 1995 1994 1993 1991
Summary: This study continues from the research conducted in 1991 where we examined the plant community and assessed plant distribution as the subarctic forest changes to tundra. We are interested in how the smaller plant species are influenced by changes in the number of trees that are nearby as well as changes in climate. Permanent plots will be established in order to monitor any changes in the plant ...
