Area of expertise

Junior A. Tremblay is leading a research program focusing on boreal birds and ecosystems to enable a sustainable environment through its preservation and restoration for current and future generations. More specifically, it aims to understand the potential impact of natural and anthropogenic disturbances and climate change on habitat selection and bird population parameters in the context of an annual life cycle. Particular attention is paid to species at risk. Thus, his research program provides applied scientific information in support of Environment and Climate Change Canada’s mandate to conserve and restore birds and protect their habitats, and provides useful scientific knowledge and advice to a diverse clientele, including scientific researchers, managers, planners and the general public.
