Past Researchers Revealed
Coral reefs are more sensitive to climate change than almost any other ecosystem on the plant. By understanding how corals respond to rising temperatures, Simon Donner hopes to help prepare for a warmer future.
Jenny McCune studies the Garry oak ecosystem which, in British Columbia, is only found in a narrow range in the southwestern corner of the province.
Kate Ostevik looks at prairie sunflowers that may all look similar, but one type grows on the shifting sand dunes in Colorado while another prefers more stable grassy soils.
Milica Mandic believes that if you’re a fish, like a sculpin, the rising temperatures, evaporation of water, and consumption of oxygen by other organisms means that conditions in tidepools might soon become challenging for survival.
Seagrasses conceal a hidden community of animals that live directly on their underwater leaves. These organisms are called epifauna, and understanding them has been the endeavour of Ross Whippo.
Dr. Jedediah Brodie works in the jungle of Southeast Asia, investigating where animals live and how they deal with human disturbances like logging, hunting, and climate change.
Tonya Ramey investigates the animals and processes which help sustain our forests.
