My research program aimed at understanding the relative influences of natural and human disturbances, as well as climate changes, on ecosystem dynamics and resilience. All the projects conducted within my lab incorporate a historical component through the use of paleoecology (e.g. pollen or macrofossil analyses) or historical (e.g. aerial photograph analyses) techniques. Furthermore, I am supervising research projects on rare plant conservation and restoration. These projects are part of the Emergency-Conservation program of the Montreal Botanical Garden.
