Samantha Renshaw's research looks at determining the effectiveness of marine protected areas for elasmobranch species like sharks, skates and rays. These areas typically exclude fishing and boat travel, but we do not necessarily know how efficient these are at conserving the species within them. Did you know we had shark species off the east coast …
 
Peter Soroye is a PhD student looking at climate change, habitat loss and how both factors affect ecosystems around the globe. He primarily focuses on pollinators (i.e bees and butterflies) as model species. As a conservation biologist, he primarily asks a lot of ecological questions based on broad patterns and what we can do to mitigate the impact…
 
The main goal of Ève's research is to better understand how tree swallows choose their nest site, and to determine if the installation of nest boxes can lead to non-ideal habitat choice. Tree swallows are aerial insectivores who usually breed in secondary cavities (i.e. tree cavities excavated by another species). Because those cavities are quite r…
 
Anne-Sophie studies trophic interactions related to forest pest species with cyclical outbreaks. She more precisely looks at the Forest Tent Caterpillar (Malacosoma disstria), a pest species known to affect aspen and maple trees, among others. She is interested in the impacts that different sources of mortality have on Forest Tent Caterpillar colon…
