Laidler, G. J. [MSc thesis, 2002] Multi-resolution remote sensing data for characterizing tundra vegetation communities on Boothia Peninsula, Nunavut. (Queen’s University).

Gita Ljubicic (Laidler at the time), worked with Sarah Takolik to conduct interviews with Inuit Elders in Taloyoak in June 2001, before going to the Boothia Peninsula field camp. Through these interviews Elders shared their knowledge of tundra plants, and the importance for uses by people and animals (especially caribou). Due to limitations of time and funding these interviews could not be meaningfully incorporated into her thesis, but all recordings were provided to the Netsilik School for community access and use.
