Recent Research Projects

NSERC CREATE: Biodiversity, ecosystem services, and sustainability

2015/16-2019/20 • $1,350,000 • PI,CO
Environmental change is occurring at an unprecedented rate, raising concerns about the conservation of biodiversity (B), the maintenance of ecosystem services (ES), and the future of sustainability (S) - BESS. These concerns are especially pressing in tropical environments, where most of the...

Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics

2017/18-2019/20 • $500,000 • PI
Evolution is now known to proceed rapidly whenever environments change. This evolution should have important consequences for ecological patterns and processes, including population dynamics (abundances), community structure (biodiversity), and ecosystem function (services). Hendry studies these...

Eco-evolutionary dynamics

2018/19-2019/20 • $130,000 • PI
Evolution was classically considered to be a very slow force for change. Recent research, however, has revealed that evolution can proceed very rapidly in cases of dramatic environmental change. This rapid (or contemporary) evolution should have important consequences for ecological patterns and...

Operations and Maintenance Support - Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre

2016/17-2017/18 • $300,000 • PI,CO
The Bamfield Marine and Sciences Centre (BMSC) is a world-class research facility located in Barkley Sound adjacent to Pacific Rim National Park Reserve on the outer west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada. Five western research universities (Victoria, British Columbia, Simon Fraser,Calgary, and...

Eco-evolutionary dynamics

2013/14-2017/18 • $210,000 • PI
Darwin suggested that evolution proceeds very slowly, and this view was almost universally accepted for more than a century. Recently, however, a dramatic shift has taken place toward an acceptance that environmental changes often drive "contemporary" (or "rapid") evolution. With this acceptance...

Mobile Field Respirometry System for Evaluating Effects of Environmental Stressors on Fish Performance

2016/17 • $135,617 • PI,CO
Biodiversity loss in response to human activities is a critical and compelling scientific issue. It has thus become increasingly important to advance our ability to understand and predict effects of environmental stressors on performance and fitness traits. Hypoxia (low dissolved oxygen, DO) is...

Portable array for remote monitoring of cryptic vertebrate biodiversity

2016/17 • $89,017 • PI,CO
Important components of bird and mammal biodiversity are often cryptic to direct human observation, being active only at night, being very rare (e.g., large carnivores), or being present only during short and episodic intervals (e.g., migratory birds). Moreover, many of these animals are shy...

Freshwater wells to support research in evolutionary genomics, physiology, and aquaculture, at Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre

2014/15 • $61,354 • PI,CO
The Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre supports world-class research on the west-coast of Vancouver Island. Research on anadromous and freshwater fishes is a growing part of our profile. Recent investments by NSERC and Howard Hughes Medical Institution have created two stickleback rearing...

Bamfield marine sciences centre

2011/12-2013/14 • $1,200,000 • PI,CO
The Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre (BMSC) began operations in 1972 in the abandoned Pacific Cable Station. It is has matured into ann internationally regarded research and training facility in the coastal and marine sciences. BMSC provides essential research support to distinguished senior...

Aquatron to study the genomics of adaptation to environmental change

2013/14 • $116,875 • PI,CO
Rapid environmental change has been shown to result in elevated extinction rates and thus poses a significant threat to Canadian biodiversity. By using manipulative experiments to connect fitness-related traits with underlying genetic architecture in relevant ecological scenarios, our research...

AQUATIC HOUSING TO STUDY THE ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION OF FISHES AT THE BAMFIELD MARINE SCIENCES CENTRE

2012/13 • $62,760 • PI,CO
Understanding how organisms are so tightly associated with their environments, and the impact this has on communities, represents a fundamental objective of ecology and evolution. Adaptation is a genetic process of evolutionary change, driven by natural selection, resulting in organisms that are...

Eco-evolutionary dynamics

2012/13 • $33,000 • PI
Charles Darwin suggested that evolution proceeds very slowly, and this view was almost universally accepted for more than a century. Over the past few decades, however, a dramatic shift has taken place toward acceptance that "contemporary" (or "rapid") evolution is occurring all around us all of...

The microevolution of biological diversity

2010/11-2011/12 • $100,080 • PI
My research seeks to understand the evolutionary forces that promote and constrain biological diversity. With respect to promoting forces, I focus on how ecological differences between populations drive divergent adaptations, and how these adaptations might then cause the split of one species...

Ecology and evolution of parasite-host relationships in a real ecosystem

2011/12 • $82,760 • PI,CO
Parasite infections shape the evolution and ecology of fishes, but we have little understanding of how rapidly changes in parasite levels lead to changes in populations, communities, and ecosystems. Our proposed research project will investigate these questions through collaboration with a 5...

The microevolution of biological diversity

2011/12 • $40,000 • PI
My research seeks to understand the evolutionary forces that promote and constrain biological diversity. With respect to promoting forces, I focus on how ecological differences between populations drive divergent adaptations, and how these adaptations might then cause the split of one species...

Biodiversity research at the Redpath Museum: field vehicle.

2011/12 • $31,794 • PI,CO
Biodiversity provides innumerable current and potential future benefits to Canadians. Understanding the origins, distribution, and maintenance of biodiversity is therefore key to understanding those benefits and how best to preserve them for the future. For these reasons, it is also critical to...

Steacie Supplement: Eco-evolutionary dynamics

2010/11 • $89,985 • Scholarship/Fellowship
Darwin suggested that evolution proceeds very slowly, a view that was almost universally accepted for the next 140 years. Over the past ten years, however, a dramatic shift has taken place toward the idea that ongoing evolution is occurring all around us, so-called "rapid" or "contemporary"...
