Factors affecting the ecological distribution of aquatic arthropods (especially, Amphipoda and Insecta) in estuaries of the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence: The role of natural variability and pesticide exposure on population and community structures.

Though community ecology questions often involve plants and larger animals like fish. My PhD project is examining a number of questions
