Welcome to the coastal ecology lab. Our research focuses on coastal habitats and their alteration by several sources of disturbance. We combine exploratory and experimental work, typically in the lab and the field, to test hypotheses with connotations to theory and management. We are located in the third floor of the Duffy Science Centre and also in the wet lab of the Biology’s Aquatic Lab in the same building. However, most of our work takes place outside, along Prince Edward Island shorelines.


Our research relies on collaboration with colleagues at the Atlantic Veterinary College, the Province, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, and several universities in the region and elsewhere. Please contact us (see below) if you have questions or want to share comments or experiences in coastal habitats.
