CO-APPLICANT, LANDSCAPE 2
My research program aimed at understanding the relative influences of natural and human disturbances, as well as climate changes, on ecosystem biodiversity, services and dynamics. Most of the projects conducted within my lab incorporate a historical component through the use of paleoecology (e.g. pollen or macrofossil analyses) or historical (e.g. aerial photograph analyses, old plant inventories) techniques. I study mainly wetlands and urban ecosystems. Furthermore, I am supervising research projects on rare plant conservation and restoration.
