PFN Monthly Meeting: “Living on the Edge: Wildlife & Change in the Hudson Bay Lowlands “ presented by Dr. Glen Brown

2023-09-14 @ 7:00 PM 9:00 PM

Wildlife adapted to a cold northern climate are vulnerable to
climate warming, yet little is known about the vulnerability of the
subarctic ecosystem in northern Ontario. The Hudson Bay
Lowlands ecozone provides breeding habitat for thousands of
migratory birds and contains the southern extent of permafrost
and breeding range of many arctic adapted wildlife. Glen Brown will discuss research on arctic fox and arctic breeding shorebirds aimed to better understand the key ecosystem functions and sensitives of wildlife to change in the subarctic of northern Ontario.

Dr. Glen Brown is a Research Scientist at Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and an Adjunct Professor at Trent University. Glen leads Ontario’s northern animal ecology research program, with research interests linking ecosystem processes, population dynamics, and individual behavioral strategies. He has conducted research on woodland caribou, moose, and habitat management for a suite of forest-dependent wildlife, including songbirds, mammals, and amphibians.
