Our team has interests and expertise in mammal and avian ecology, predator-prey relationships, sustainable resource management, waterfowl ecology, wetland ecology, remote sensing, and quantitative methods. We include a range of approaches in our research, including the study of individual species ecology, population ecology, food-webs and trophic integrations. The research program is supported through base funding, contracts and grants of provincial and federal agencies and non-governmental and private organizations. Facilities include field camps located near the coast of Hudson Bay in Polar Bear Provincial Park, Ontario (Burntpoint Creek Research Station) and on Akimiski Island, Nunavut, as well as staff houses in Moosonee and Peawanuck, Ontario. Staff and students are primarily located in the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environmental and Life Sciences Graduate Program at Trent University. The lab is further supported through collaborative relationships with York University (Department of Earth and Space Science), Laurentian University, the Canadian Wildlife Service, the Mississippi Flyway Council, the Arctic Goose Joint Venture, and the Black Duck Joint Venture. Partnership in the Hudson Bay Project includes collaborators at the American Museum of Natural History, University of North Dakota, University of Rhode Island, who run field sites near La Pérouse Bay, Manitoba.
