Georges Charette MSc Candidate
Georges is working on characterizing spatial variation in terrestrial subsidy in terms of quality and quantity and explore how those variations might drive beta-diversity and functioning of macro-invertebrate community in lakes.
Charlie Sarran PhD Candidate
Charlie is working on experimental metaecosystems exploring how alteration to cross-ecosystem subsidy dynamics will affect the recipient ecosystem response in terms of community structure, stability and processes.
Eric Harvey Lab PI
I am a community ecologist with broad interests in metacommunity, metaecosystem and food web ecology. More specifically, I seek to understand the mechanisms that structure communities of interacting species and how the emerging structure influences ecosystem function. That is to say, I am interested in how community and ecosystem ecology interact. I’m also very interested in bridging ecology and conservation sciences by fostering a better communication between both fields, and by developing a research program centered on the empirical testing of ecological theory. When I am not cosying up in front of my computer with a warm tea or coffee to crunch data or write, I enjoy canoe camping, climbing, hockey, cycling and playing with my daughter. I enjoy good food and beer tasting, but most of all I enjoy the good company that comes with it and the discussion about life, philosophy and politics.
