Welcome to Stream Ecology, Assessment and Monitoring Sciences

Led by Dr. Adam Yates, the StrEAMS Lab conducts ecological research and develop tools enhancing society’s knowledge and ability to conserve the health of stream ecosystems. It is home to a diverse group of post-docs, technicians as well as graduate and undergraduate students who work together with government and non-government agencies to enhance society’s ecological knowledge of river and stream ecosystems and ensure these critical ecosystems are sustainably managed.

Our Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Statement

The StrEAMS Lab believes in creating an environment that prioritizes Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. We strive to create a supportive and accessible workspace for all, where safety and a healthy work/life balance are key priorities. We aim to provide a research environment free from discriminatory or harassing behaviour, where people of all gender identities and expressions, sexualities, races, ages, religions, abilities, and socio-economic statuses can contribute their unique perspectives and experiences to our projects. Every lab member is committed to learning and working together to eliminate barriers to inclusion.
