Research

The Soper River region's plants have not been studied or inventoried since the 1920s. In June 2012 four Canadian botanists from the National Herbarium of Canada travelled to the Soper River region to assess the region's botanical biodiversity by collecting samples and cataloguing the plant specimens. The expedition was part of a five-year project to record Arctic flora and improve the taxonomy of the Arctic ecology.
