Mikhaela Neelin

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Southern species have been moving farther into northern ecosystems as climate change renders this environment more suitable for them. Across North America, beavers have been expanding northwards and have been observed well above the treeline. As ecosystem engineers, beavers drastically... Read More →

Marian MacNair

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) numbers have declined drastically in recent years. Given its remarkable migration across North America, the monarch has become an iconic species for conservationists. Reproduction in eastern Canada may be an important reservoir for the species... Read More →

Insaf Chida

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Ce projet de thèse a pour objectif de mieux comprendre la réponse des communautés végétales face à l’implantation de légumineuses en intercalaire pour lutter contre les adventices en agriculture biologique. Nous avons installé un essai dans une culture d’avoine en Abitibi... Read More →

Jochen Jaeger

Associate Professor at Concordia University
The most important mitigation measure for reducing roadkill is wildlife fencing, because more effective measures are often unrealistic, whereas less expensive measures are ineffective. Mortality-reduction graphs can help prioritize road sections for fencing. Theoretically, fencing... Read More →
