IMG_20181123_125448Welcome to our lab page! We have a number of cool studies on the go: exciting projects looking at various aspects of behavioural and population ecology, evolutionary ecology, community ecology, and conservation and management. My students and I maintain an expanding research program on the population dynamics of woodland caribou, moose, and their predators (wolves, black bears) in northern Saskatchewan, including multi-species responses to landscape disturbance and people. We also have several projects associated with the outdoor laboratory of Sable Island, Nova Scotia (ongoing since 2007). Building on what we have learned about feral horse population ecology on Sable Island, we recently initiated a new program on the management and ecology of the feral horses of the Alberta foothills. Research programs that we are currently building toward includes launching new projects on elk movements and landscape genetics in southern Saskatchewan; and work on barren-ground caribou in the Arctic. Recently completed projects include those on white-tailed deer and elk in Manitoba and effects of density and hunting on moose of Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland. Click on our collaborators page to meet all of the people that help make our projects possible.
