Esther Carle-Pruneau

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Comme plusieurs insectivores aériens, l’Hirondelle bicolore (Tachycineta bicolor) présente un déclin important de ses populations. Les causes potentielles de ce déclin semblent majoritairement en lien avec l’intensification des pratiques agricoles. Ces pratiques agissent sur... Read More →

Jean-Michel Matte

Postdoctoral fellow | Postdoctorant.e
Density dependence is a strong regulator of animal populations, occurring primarily through intraspecific competition for a limiting resource. Because food is generally limited in natural environments, it is typically assumed that increasing animal density leads to reduced individual... Read More →

Megan Joyce

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Research has shown that nonhuman primates are capable of making intentional, directional movement choices in order to solve spatial navigation problems in foraging. Here, we investigated the influence of various social (rank and conspecific competition), nonsocial (age and sex), and... Read More →

Isaac Blaise Djoko

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Les conflits humain-éléphants sont une préoccupation croissante et la gravité des pertes économiques qui en résultent appelle la recherche des solutions urgentes les plus appropriées. L'utilisation de clôtures de ruches, une méthode d'atténuation présentant des avantages... Read More →

Maxime Fraser Franco

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Predators influence the structure of ecological communities via their hunting mode. While they have been extensively studied, hunting modes are often considered as a fixed dichotomous trait (ambush vs active hunters) within predator species. While research shows that predators display... Read More →

Noémie Lafortune

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Les populations animales constituent un assemblage hétérogène d’individus. Cette variation intraspécifique exerce un rôle important sur les processus écologiques et évolutifs. Plusieurs études ont démontré l’existence de différences comportementales entre individus... Read More →

MK Hickox

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Traditional evolutionary theory has long asserted that adaptive divergence is unlikely to occur over fine spatial scales, as gene flow is expected to limit the effects of selection. However, with the advent of the concept of microgeographic divergence, the assumptions of classical... Read More →

Abbie Gail Jones

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Describing the spatial distribution of species is vital for successful species, habitat, or α-diversity conservation policies and recovery plans; however, geographic species occurrence data are rarely complete and are vulnerable to systematic biases. Species distribution models (SDMs... Read More →

Catherine Čapkun-Huot

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
L’habituation est un processus d’apprentissage par lequel un individu diminue sa réponseà un stimulus après une exposition répétée à celui-ci. Quoique ce processus ait été surtoutétudié dans les domaines de la psychologie et de la cognition, son intérêt en écologieévolutive... Read More →

Determining the factors that limit species range distributions is fundamental to understanding patterns of diversity, particularly for plant species which often serve as the foundation of ecosystems. However, the extent to which biotic interactions, specifically mutualisms, influence... Read More →

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
La théorie de l'entropie maximale de l'écologie (mieux connue sous son acronyme anglais METE) prédit plusieurs distributions macroécologiques d'intérêt en biologie de la conservation. À partir d'une poignée de variables d'état caractérisant une communauté biologique (e.g... Read More →

Gabrielle Rimok

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
Patterns of biodiversity are dependent on environmental heterogeneity; that is, environmental spatial structure. The organization and configuration of a community’s environment will greatly affect its richness and diversity. In the case of amphibians, they are highly sensitive to... Read More →

Denis Cao Van Truong

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
In predator-dense environments, prey species must be able to optimize their foraging ability and reproductive output while maintaining high investment into predator-avoidance behaviours in order to avoid the accumulation of lost opportunity costs. In the context of mating, chronic... Read More →

La modélisation en trois dimensions (3D) de spécimens biologiques nécessite généralement l’utilisation de scanners. Bien que ces techniques soient performantes et précises, elles ne sont pas exemptes de défauts : leur coût élevé et leur taille imposante pose notamment... Read More →

Shannon Meadley Dunphy

Student Speaker | Étudiant.e
All species have limited geographic distributions, constrained by their abiotic and biotic environments. Biotic interactions can strongly affect species ranges, yet their role is tricky to pin down. This is especially true for species that rely strongly on others, such as parasites... Read More →
