Freshwater ecosystems are sentinels of our environment. Now more than ever, lakes, rivers, and wetlands face threats from stressors such as climate change, land-use shifts, and pollutant deposition. Of fundamental importance is the recognition of the timescales of species, assemblage, and ecosystem response to stressors. ECAB Lab integrates a wide-range of methods from ecology, biomonitoring, and paleolimnology to understand the effects of human activities and natural processes on freshwaters. Our current focus includes: 1) Understanding the cause and impacts of benthic algal blooms in salmon rivers, 2) Quantifying lake and wetland response to long-term environmental changes and legacy contaminants, and 3) Advancing knowledge on emerging environmental stressors to freshwater ecosystems of eastern Canada.
