In love with entomology as far back as he can remember, Maxim Larrivée has a master’s degree in landscape ecology from Carleton University in Ottawa and a doctorate in entomology from McGill University. He specializes in the study of the impacts of natural and human-produced perturbations on the biodiversity of certain groups of arthropods, including spiders, beetles and butterflies. He’s the designer of eButterfly, a citizen-scientist participation project aimed at tracking over the long term the distribution of Canada’s butterflies in the context of global changes. Maxim is also interested in the management of information pertaining to biodiversity in Canada as well as in the development of educational tools designed to raise awareness in young people about entomology, climate change and the use of Web tools processing information on biodiversity.
