We had the great privilege of contributing to the Wild Canadian Weather series on The Nature of Things. Check out the ‘Cold’ episode, and also the behind the scenes episode to see how we got the footage:
Welcome to new graduate students Rebekah Persad @RebekahPersad and Greg Melvin @_GregMelvin! We are looking forward to starting these fun new projects!
This winter we have published 3 new papers in landscape ecology and landscape genetics in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Current Landscape Ecology Reports, and Ecology and Evolution. From bobcats to loons, to polar bears, to songbirds! We end one paper with warm wishes to a beaver in Seattle. You’ll have to read on to learn more!
I am currently recruiting graduate students for multiple positions. Opportunities exists to work on a variety of ongoing projects. One specific opportunity is to study flying squirrel genomics. Get in touch if you are interested in discussing possible thesis projects.
Congratulations to Samantha Morin for defending her M.Sc. thesis on lynx and bobcat habitat selection!
Check out the footage for our flying squirrel project on German television. The show was viewed by more than 16 million people when it aired! The squirrel sequence starts at 14:00 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k1fN9JEkBU.
I have two current graduate student opportunities:
- I am looking for a Ph.D. student interested in studying bioinformatics and genomics at Trent.
- I have an opening for a M.Sc. student interested in bat ecology.
Get in touch if either of these opportunities interests you!
