More Photos from the Field

Biology M.Sc. student Caroline Hamelin is inspecting a young red oak she planted in May 2014, in a field experiment (located in the Eastern Townships of southern Quebec) designed to test the hypothesis that glossy buckthorn (an introduced invasive shrub) is reducing the growth of tree regeneration and of native forest herbs. Caroline comes to the University of Regina with a graduate scholarship from the Province of Quebec and she is supervised by Dr. Daniel Gagnon, Dean of Science.
