McGill alumnus Marc-André Isabelle (Dip.FMT, BEng. Bioresource) is a course lecturer in the Farm Management & Technology program.
A study released this month found that as the climate changes in the North, some cold-adapted arctic birds are especially susceptible to heat stress.
The Arctic is warming at approximately twice the global rate. A new study led by researchers from McGill University finds that cold-adapted Arctic species, like the thick-billed murre, are especially vulnerable to heat stress caused by climate change.
Today Genome Quebec announced the results of its Genomic Integration Program, Human Health Stream competition. Five McGill teams from a diverse array of fields were awarded funds, totaling nearly $1 million.
Congratulations to Pierre G. Langlois, B.Sc. (Agr)'78, CBIS (MIS)'90, the first of several members of the Macdonald community to be named an Unsung Hero as part of the University’s Bicentennial Celebrations!
Pierre lives the Macdonald motto “Mastery for Service.” Over the years, he has dedicated much of his time and energy to representing the interests of others and bettering the units and communities he serves.
Convocation is a special time and an important milestone in the lives of graduating students. Today’s virtual Convocation ceremony for the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences enjoyed a milestone of a more collective fashion, however.
Conversations with valedictorians: Sreedurga Cherukumalli, Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences“It becomes so easy to do your part when everyone around you is doing their part to live sustainably.”
Hailing from around the world, McGill’s valedictorians are a diverse, multitalented group. When they came to the University, they brought with them their unique backgrounds, passions and ambitions.
Amidst the doom and gloom of the climate crisis, it can be difficult to envision a sustainable future – or even see positive change.
Forest fires have crept higher up mountains over the past few decades, scorching areas previously too wet to burn, according to researchers from McGill University. As wildfires advance uphill, a staggering 11% of all Western U.S. forests are now at risk.
Setting the standard in the fight against food fraud
Milk is the main source of vitamin B12 consumption for Canadians. A glass of cow’s milk contains about 46% of the daily-recommended dietary intake of vitamin B12 for adults. But what factors influences the concentration of B12 in a glass of milk? Turns out, what cows eat and how they digest it can impact human’s B12 intake.
MatrixSpex Solutions, founded by Bioresource Engineer and James McGill Professor Michael Ngadi, is the first funding recipient of The Canadian Agri-Food Automation and Intelligence Network (CAAIN) for its project: Optimizing Hyper-Eye: An Integrated Solution for Assessment of Fertility and Gender of Pre-Incubated Eggs.
Using a Fitbit and a spy mic, scientists have discovered new insight into the behaviour of the elusive Canada lynx. A new study by researchers from McGill University, University of Alberta, and Trent University provides a first look at how miniaturized technology can open the door to remote wildlife monitoring.
La nutrition ne peut plus être que l’affaire de femmes blanches, minces et souriantes qui mangent des pommes – le cliché de la nutritionniste vue par Google Images. Un groupe de travail sur le racisme en nutrition « a été mis sur pied il y a quelques mois, dans la foulée de la mort de George Floyd et des questions qui en ont découlé », indique Mélanie Champagne, directrice des communications de l’Ordre des diététistes-nutritionnistes du Québec.
