Research Facilities and Field Sites

Laboratory facilities for Behavioural Ecology in our Department of Biology

My Behavioural Ecology research laboratory comprises dry and wet (aquatic) research rooms. The laboratory is well equipped for maintaining freshwater fishes, recording of behaviour, video and image analyses, and computerized data analysis and modeling.
Below are some photos of my lab.
There are other facilities in the Department, used by other members of our Behaviour, Ecology and Evolution Group, for research on animal behaviour and behavioural ecology.

Field Research Sites

In addition to laboratory-based research, we also carry out field research using a variety of different species (mainly freshwater fishes), depending on the research questions being addressed. These field sites range from local ones, to regional ones within Canada, to distant tropical ones (e.g. in Trinidad and Costa Rica).

Here are photos of some of our field research sites and the habitats of our main study fish species.
