Programme bilingue en biologie (BSc)

Arctique, écologie comportementale, évolution biologique, interactions trophiques, changements climatiques, migration

Doctorat :

2011 : Université du Québec à Rimouski

Maîtrise :

2005 : Michigan State University

Intérêts de recherche :

 

Écologie et évolution des stratégies migratoires des oiseaux nichant dans l'Arctique ;  Compromis entre les effets directs (physiologiques) et les effets indirects (interactions trophiques) des changements climatiques sur la croissance et la survie des juvéniles des espèces nichant dans l’Arctique ;  Effets des variations spatiales et temporelles des contraintes trophiques (risque de prédation, disponibilité de la nourriture) sur la reproduction des oiseaux migrateurs.
