Research
The Biogeography Lab at Université de Montréal specializes in the study of long-term ecosystem stability. More specifically, we are studying the factors stabilizing and destabilizing wetland functions in the context of environmental change. We study changes occuring over long periods (centuries to millennia) and shorter periods (years to decades). To do so, we use different techniques, including micropaleontology, biogeochemical measurements, vegetation inventories and ecosystem modelling.
