Ecological Research in Arctic Freshwater Ecosystems
Motivated MSc/PhD students are sought to participate in novel Arctic research within a NSERC Strategic Project Grant, “Functional, Structural and Biodiversity Studies of Arctic Freshwater Watersheds: Validating Protocols for Monitoring and Cumulative Assessments”.
