Updates, activities, etc.
Sept. 25, 2019 - IPCC special report on climate change effects in the ocean and cryosphere comes out today. Full report here. See coverage by the National Geographic.
Sept 3, 2019 - Welcome new students Kate, Ben, Julia, Nuha, and Nikki!! The Sunday lab is now populated with an amazing team working on various topics in ecology, biogeography and environmental change. A special welcome to those migrating to Montreal from afar! Link to team page.
July 30, 2019 - Very inspired by the international work being done on detecting and responding to climate-change induced range shifts at the Species on the Move conference in South Africa! Thanks to everyone for a wonderful meeting.
April 25, 2019 - New paper out this week in Nature!! Thanks to leadership by Malin Pinsky, we report direct comparisons of warming sensitivity of terrestrial and marine ectotherms. Link is View-only: https://rdcu.be/byuFB
April 2, 2019 - Hosting a CIEE working group this week at Gault Nature Reserve to synthesize intra-specific variation in thermal tolerance, with major leadership from Joey Bernhardt! Couldn't ask for a better group and location... more soon!
Feb 8, 2019 - Highly enjoyed taking part in this public debate / coffee chat with Prof Anna Hargreaves at McGill Biology Department Day. Can we make climate change predictions in ecology? Photo credit: Andrew Hendry
Feb 1, 2019 - Honoured and excited to be part of the @Big_Biology podcast that came out today! We chatted about using big databases to track changes in species distributions as the earth gets warmer. Listen here: http://ow.ly/CYVB50ktNTa
Oct. 2, 2018 - Great to chat with McGill Faculty of Science about our eDNA research on the coast of BC. Article here: https://www.mcgill.ca/science/channels/news/using-dna-technology-track-marine-life-291021
