Research in our lab is centered on the conservation of wild animal populations. Most of our research is conducted on birds and butterflies but we have worked on a variety of threatened or endangered taxa. Our field-based research uses a variety of approaches, including observations, experiments, and long-term data. We often combine these approaches with new technologies to track the movements of individuals over a variety of spatial scales. Our lab works in partnership with the Nature Conservancy of Canada, where we seek to understand how protected areas can best contribute to conserving biodiversity across Canada.
