Post-fire forest regeneration in the Western Canadian continental boreal forest: measurement and landscape modeling
Principal Investigator: Gal, Ruth A.C.
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective of this study is to develop a landscape model capable of predicting regeneration after fire in the Northern Boreal Forest. Data has been collected in the past from Porter Lake (near Lutsel K'e), Big Fish Lake, Alberta, and Wood Buffalo National Park, between Pine Lake and Peace Point. Data has also been collected from the International Crown Fire Modeling Experiment near Fort Pro...

Forestry Research in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Walker-Larsen, Jennifer
Licensed Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Forest Fire Effects on Vegetation and Wildlife Habitat use: Research sites will be accessed by helicopter. Sites are located in burns of different ages. In the summer, small teams will complete vegetation plots, assess species composition and percent cover, and assess wildlife abundance. In the winter, helicopter track surveys will be completed. Forest Monitoring (ARNEWS and SI/MAB plots): The...

Sustainable Alternatives to Industrial Forestry in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Anderson, David G
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999 1998
Summary: The objective of this study is to develop a forest management plan that is sensitive to the priorities identified by the Gwich'in Elders and contemporary Gwich'in forest users. A total of four graduate students and their assistants will work with forestry experts employed by the Gwich'in Renewable Resources Board (GRRB) both to supplement an existing database and to synthesize the material into a...

Prescribed fire and vegetation dynamics in the Slave River lowlands, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Quinlan, Allyson
Licensed Year(s): 1998
Summary: The principle researcher and one (or two) field assistants will be flown into Hook Lake base camp by either helicopter or fixed wing aircraft (transportation and field support confirmed by Renewable Resources, NWT). Temporary vegetation (herbaceous) transects will be established on the following prairies in the Hook Lake area: Dan's Prairie, North Prairie, Paul's Prairie, Ann's Prairie, Hook Lake ...

Modelling the establishment and growth of post-fire tree seedlings
Principal Investigator: Gal, Ruth Ann
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: As a result of global warming (which results from increased amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere), it is suggested that the number of forest fires and the amount of area burned may increase in the northern boreal forests. The types of trees that grow first in these burned areas may be different from those that would have grown in if the climate was cooler. I will collect data at burn site...

Forest Fire Research
Principal Investigator: Maffey, Murray
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will participate in and assist with fire behavior and fuel type data collection on the Little Rat Lake prescribed burn. The will resurvey the experimental burn plots and carry out a regeneration survey 10 years after the experimental burns at Porter Lake. Initial attack crew leaders in the Fort Simpson district will be interviewed to obtain detailed information about the effectiven...
