Despite their ecological importance, the effects of forestry on vernal pool hydrology and herpetofauna are unknown.
The goal of this project is to assess the effects of different forestry management techniques on forest productivity and resilience.
The goal of this project is to understand the hydrologic dynamics of Papineau Lake and how those dynamics are related to shoreline wetlands.
The goal of this project is to determine the ecological factors that facilitate the successful invasion of non-indigenous slugs.
Assessing the best management strategies in relation to increasing the overall resilience of forests to invasive pests, disease and climate change.
Biodiversity is central to the resilience and health of our ecosystems, especially today as we face unprecedented environmental challenges.
The goal of this project is to identify the encroachment of the Champlain Sea at Kenauk and classify geological sites of interest for exploration.
The goal of this project is to continue the long term monitoring of water quality in Papineau Lake.
In 2015 the Papineau lake dam was converted into a weir to improve fish access and aquatic habitats between the lake and the Kinonge River.
The goal of this project is to determine the feeding habits of coyotes through fecal DNA metabarcoding analyses.
Is angling for nesting bass (even catch-and-release) detrimental to their reproductive success and consequently to population level recruitment?
In 2014, NCC began a series of inventories on the property of Kenauk with the goal of documenting it’s biodiversity to exemplify its value.
While loon populations are currently stable, a number of threats loom, including human encroachment and pollution.
The goal of this project was to determine if forestry management practices impact pollinators and how they interact with plants.
Vernal pools are specialized wildlife habitats but because they are small in size and temporary, they are difficult to identify and therefore protect.
Zoning Kenauk on a fine scale is foreseen to define the management of the various resources for the territory.
Biodiversity conservation depends on deep knowledge about the smaller and hyper-diverse animals in the world, including insects and spiders.
The FECP Lab is committed to ensuring that recreational fisheries are sustainable by improving the science and practice of catch-and-release.
