Mark Jewell

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Community dynamics are governed by two processes: species sorting and neutral drift. Much ink has been spilled in attempting to demonstrate that one of these processes is much more important than the other. The controversy is largely pointless, because both processes will be active... Read More →

Camille Gaudreau-Rousseau

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
La sélection d’habitat est un processus ayant des conséquences majeures sur l’aptitude phénotypique des individus, particulièrement dans le cas de sites spécifiques utilisés de façon intensive et occupés sur une longue période de temps (ex : nids, tanières ou terriers... Read More →

Alexis Heckley

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Studies of parallel evolution have been essential for advancing our understanding of adaptation and natural selection. Few species have contributed as much to our understanding of parallelism as have Trinidadian guppies (Poecilia reticulata). The dichotomy between ‘high’ and ‘low... Read More →

Grant Haines

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e, McGill Biology/Redpath Museum
Because they are subject to new suites of selective pressures, phenotypes of introduced populations are expected to evolve rapidly in response to their new environments. This is especially true in cases where the ancestral populations are well-adapted to their environments, and conditions... Read More →

Tanya Strydom

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Quantifying the complexity of ecological networks has remained an elusive task. Primarily, the definition of the complexity of the system has been built on the basis of its structure or behaviour. These definitions ignore the notion of the 'physical complexity' of the system, which... Read More →

Celina Baines

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Many of the most pressing questions and challenges in the field of parasite ecology are inherently spatial: invasion of parasites into new ranges and increasing interactions between wildlife and humans and between wildlife and livestock affect the dynamics of parasites and their hosts...
