        Salicaceae Willows (Salix) are extremely plentiful, with approximately 45 species found in the willow species are as small as my pinky toe and around 10 species can become "tree" size. Still, these large willows are still considered shrubs because they have several main stems arising at or near the ground. However the more mountainous areas are lightly populated (Clark et al, ). Whitehorse is surrounded by Watson Lake on the British Columbian border and the Selwyn and Mackenzie mountains on the Northwest Territory border (World Atlas, ). One-quarter of the land in Whitehorse is permafrost (Yukon Community Profiles, ).

      3 CLIMATE The Yukon has a subarctic climate. The high altitude of much of the territory and the semiarid climate provide relatively warm summers with temperatures frequently reaching 77° F (25° C) or more during the long summer winter the temperature ranges between 39° F and ° F (4° C and ° C) in the south and slightly colder farther north.

THE LATE QUATERNARY VEGETATION OF THE NORTH YUKON James C. Ritchie and Les C. Cwynar The arctic-steppe concept is tested by scrutiny of two detailed late Pleistocene herbzone pollen records from Hanging Lake (tundra) and Lateral Pond (woodland) in northern Yukon Territory and by consideration of other published pollen sequences in eastern Beringia.

Beringian climate and environmental history are poorly characterized at its easternmost edge. Lake sediments from the northern Yukon Territory have re.

Most of the territory is boreal forest, tundra being the main vegetation zone only in the extreme north and at high elevations.

The territory is about the shape of a right triangle, bordering the American state of Alaska to the west, the Northwest Territories to the east and British Columbia to the south.

Book Description: The concept of taphonomy has been borrowed from paleontology and applied to the analysis of vertebrate fossils from the Old Crow region of the northern Yukon Territory.

By means of this approach, archaeologically significant specimens have been isolated from the larger suite of materials which can be explained entirely in. If you’re looking for the best seats on the planet to view the aurora borealis, look no further than the Yukon.

Aquatic vegetation thrives in lakes and wetlands, near which orchids can also be found blooming in the summer months.Beringian climate and environmental history are poorly characterized at its easternmost edge. Lake sediments from the northern Yukon Territory have recorded sedimentation, vegetation, summer temperature and precipitation changes since ~ 16 cal ka BP.

Herb-dominated tundra persisted until ~ cal ka BP with mean July air temperatures ≤ 5°C colder and annual precipitation 50 to mm.This guide covers a number of edible plants in Northwest Territories, Canada including the Yellowknife area and the Aulavik, Nahanni, Pingo, Tuktut Nogait, and Wood Buffalo National Parks.
