Biography

We believe that understanding the ecological implications of processes by which animals acquire and assimilate energy from the environment, and allocate assimilated energy between maintenance, growth, and reproduction, ultimately requires field studies that integrate measures of energy supply and expenditure, under known environmental conditions, and in situations where behaviour, reproduction, and survival can be documented.

We try better understanding, predicting and monitoring environmental change impacts on northern wildlife and traditional food security in Canada by working with many northern partners, including federal and provincial governments, private corporations, and indigenous organizations, to design and implement locally relevant research at the interface of scientific and traditional ecological knowledge.
