boiving [at] agr [dot] gc [dot] ca (Dr. Guy Boivin) - Research Scientist, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu). Behavioral ecology of insect parasitoids: host selection, host discrimination, learning. Selection of natural enemies for biological control programs against insect pests of vegetable crops.
colin [dot] chapman [at] mcgill [dot] ca (Dr. Colin Chapman) - Professor and Canada Research Chair in Primate Ecology and Conservation, Department of Anthropology and McGill School of Environment, McGill University. Experimental and observational approaches to determine how plant communities influence animals (primate population regulation, determinants of primate group size) and how animals influence their environment (herbivory, seed dispersal, community restoration). This research has often been developed to permit direct application to conservation
lauren [dot] chapman [at] mcgill [dot] ca (Dr. Lauren Chapman) - Professor and Canada Research Chair in Respiratory Ecology and Aquatic Conservation, Department of Biology, McGill University. Aquatic ecology and conservation, evolutionary and ecological consequences of respiratory strategies in fishes, ecophysiology, ecomorphology, adaptive divergence, tropical inland waters, Africa. Recent work focuses on divergent selection across oxygen gradients in fishes, the interaction of hypoxia with other environmental stressors (e.g., introduced species), and value of tropical wetlands in the maintenance of fish faunal structure and diversity.

charles [dot] greer [at] nrc [dot] ca (Dr. Charles W. Greer) - National Research Council of Canada. Study of the microbial ecology and activity of bacteria involved in the degradation of organic pollutants (petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated organics, explosives), the development and application of molecular techniques to survey and monitor their population densities in contaminated environments and their responses to stress and stimulation. Evaluation of efficacy and optimization of bio-remediation technologies (ex situ, in situ, natural attenuation, phytoremediation) for the treatment of contaminated sites.
marilyn [dot] scott [at] mcgill [dot] ca (Dr. Marilyn Scott) - Institute of Parasitology, McGill. Understanding of host-parasite population dynamics using experimental and field epidemiology and theoretical studies. Exploration of factors relevant to, and consequences of, parasite control methods applied at the level of the host population or community.

Geoffrey [dot] Sunahara [at] cnrc-nrc [dot] gc [dot] ca (Dr. Geoffrey Sunahara) - environmental toxicologist, and Senior Research Officer and the Group Leader of Applied Ecotoxicology at NRC’s Biotechnology Research Institute. He researches exposure- and effects-assessment of various toxic and persistent pollutants. He has >80 publications and holds academic joint appointments at McGill and Concordia. Dr. Sunahara has served on several editorial boards, and was the Lead Editor of a recent ecotoxicology book "Environmental Analysis of Contaminated Sites". He has participated on expert advisory committees for Environment Canada, NSERC, SERDP, and US-EPA research projects. Dr. Sunahara has led a number of high revenue multi-disciplinary collaborations.
