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...

BIOS2: Computational Biodiversity Science and Services

2018/19-2019/20 • $450,000 • PI,CO
No summary

Plant Microbiomes

2017/18-2019/20 • $250,000 • PI
The Canada Research Chair in Plant Microbiomes uses cutting-edge environmental DNA sequencing to study the microbial life living on plants - the plant microbiome. The proposed research program will study microbes living on plant leaves in boreal, temperate and tropical forests in order to...

Life on leaves: modeling the ecology and evolution of plant-microbe interactions

2019/20 • $33,000 • PI
Plant-microbe interactions may have important effects on the ecology and evolution of plants, but our understanding of patterns of plant-microbe associations and the processes responsible for these patterns are still in their infancy due to the recent development of molecular methods to study...

Plant-microbial interactions on leaves: linking microbial biodiversity with plant traits, function, and biodiversity

2013/14-2018/19 • $162,000 • PI
Plant-microbe interactions may have important effects on the ecology and evolution of plants, but our understanding of patterns of plant-microbe associations and the processes responsible for these patterns are still in their infancy due to the recent development of molecular methods to study...

Plant-Microbial Interactions and Biodiversity

2012/13-2017/18 • $500,000 • PI
The recent development of molecular methods to study the biodiversity of microbes is revealing the incredible diversity of microbial communities and the importance of plant-microbe interactions for the fitness, distribution and function of plants. The objective of the CRC is to use global...

Laboratoire mobile d'écologie en forêt boréale

2013/14 • $98,168 • PI,CO
L'équipe de recherche formée des professeurs Pierre Drapeau (UQAM), Daniel Kneeshaw et Steven Kembel de l'UQAM présente une demande de laboratoire mobile en écologie, constitué d'équipements de transport (camion et véhicule quad), de logement mobile (roulottes et tentes explorateurs), et...
