Welcome to the Dynamic Environment & Ecosystem Health Research website!

In times of increasing human population density and intensifying demands on our natural resources, aquatic ecosystems remain among our most precious global assets. Anthropogenic ("caused by humans") impacts and environmental sustainability will become increasingly important socially, economically and politically. Our research will integrate multiple approaches from diverse fields such as environmental chemistry, aquatic ecology, fish biology and population health. Our ultimate goal is to improve our understanding of the fate and effects of anthropogenic and natural toxicants in aquatic ecosystems and the way humans interact with aquatic environments.

The Dynamic Environment & Ecosystem Health Research group carries out research and assessment of both aquatic and contaminated ecosystems across Canada and world-wide. Check out the links on the left for details on what we do.
