ArcticNet - About us

Isla Myers-Smith

I am investigating the spread of willows up slope into the alpine tundra in the Yukon Territory to identify mechanisms of canopy forming shrub expansion and implications for ecosystem function. I have participated in the ArcticWOLVES project for the summers of 2008 and 2009 conducting plant harvests and measuring changes in willow shrubs on Qikiqtaruk - Herschel Island, YT. I have acted as an Outreach Coordinator for the ArcticNet Students Association from 2009-2010.
