Determining processes which drive the metacommunity structure of spruce budworm’s (Choristoneura fumiferana) associated parasitoids
I am interested in how spatial and temporal environmental heterogeneity affect the structure and distribution of populations and communities of organisms, using landscape ecology tools. My current research project is interested in characterizing the metacommunity structure of parasitoids associated with the spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana) in connection with forest composition and connectivity.
