Current research theme
Impact of forest harvesting on the functioning of boreal lakes.
Hello, I am Hengyi, a student in forest ecology at UQAT. My project focuses on the boreal forest, the largest forest biome in the world, consisting of a forest-like vegetation formation traversed by a vast lake system. Anthropogenic disturbances in the watershed, such as forest harvesting, can strongly influence the environmental conditions of boreal forest aquatic ecosystems. However, their impacts on aquatic organisms remain poorly understood. My project aims to determine the impact of forest harvesting on the functioning of boreal forest lake ecosystems by assessing how post-harvest terrestrial inputs affect the structure, functioning and health of aquatic food webs.
