Julia Briand

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Coral communities support key ecosystem processes and services. Evaluating the spatio-temporal dynamics of coral communities is essential for understanding and predicting the impacts of environmental change on coastal ecosystem functioning. Such environmental change is often attributed... Read More →

Justin Marleau

Postdoctoral fellow | Postdoctorant.e
The effects of organisms beyond resource consumption are vital to explaining ecosystem function and structure. Previously proposed concepts to organize and understand these effects such as trait-mediated indirect interactions and ecosystem engineering have aided our efforts, but their... Read More →

Kayleigh Hutt-Taylor

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
The urban forest is made up of the trees and associated green spaces in parks, streets, private land and natural areas within the city. As part of the urban landscape, trees are a key contributor to biodiversity and ecosystem service provision. For example, trees within our green... Read More →

Kiri Stern

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Species connectivity models play an important role in ecological research and biodiversity assessment. Unfortunately, simulations of connectivity models are typically slow, therefore preventing the rapid iteration and updates of models when evaluating different scenarios. In this... Read More →

Sabrina Cloutier

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Avec l’essor de l’agriculture urbaine et la popularité grandissante de l’alimentation de proximité, la demande envers les services de pollinisation en ville est en hausse. La préservation d’habitats pour les pollinisateurs et le développement de l’agriculture urbaine... Read More →
