THÈMES DE RECHERCHE

Fonctions écosystèmiques de bryophytes
Les bryophytes sont omniprésentes dans le milieu boréal, et peuvent grandement influencer les fonctions écosystèmiques (p.ex. cycle d’éléments nutritifs, et de l’eau) des systèmes boréaux. Par contre, nos connaissances sur ces impacts sont naissante, et leurs implications dans l’aménagement forestier est encore moins connu. La docteure Fenton mène des projets de recherche qui vont permettre de mieux comprendre le rôle des bryophytes dans les processus des écosystèmes boréaux, et de prédire comment leurs impacts interagissent avec nos aménagements.

L’écologie des bryophytes en paysages naturels et aménagés
Nos connaissances sur l’écologie des bryophytes forestières en Amérique du Nord est encore en développement. La docteure Fenton œuvre dans ce domaine pour bien comprendre les dynamiques des communautés dans des milieux une variété de milieux, autant au niveau du site ou peuplement qu’au niveau du paysage.
