Le 30 mai 2009, est décédé à l'âge de 55 ans, le professeur Donald W. Thomas, doyen de la Faculté des sciences, des suites d’un accident vasculaire cérébral, sur son terrain d'expérimentation en Corse. Le CEF perd ainsi un très important chercheur en écophysiologie animale et un passionné de la vie!

THÈMES DE RECHERCHE

Depuis mon entrée en fonction à l'Université de Sherbrooke en 1985 en tant que Professeur-chercheur, mon programme de recherche et de formation de jeunes chercheurs et chercheures a porté sur l'équilibre et les contraintes énergétiques et nutritionnelles chez les homéothermes en sens large. J’utilise les mammifères et les oiseaux comme modèles biologiques et mes recherches portent autant sur les animaux libres dans la nature que dans le laboratoire. Je crois que le mariage des méthodes précises du laboratoire avec les études sur le terrain permet de mieux comprendre les contraintes énergétiques et nutritionnelles que les animaux doivent solutionner dans leur vie quotidienne. Durant les derniers 15 ans, mes recherches et celles de mes étudiants ont abordé des problématiques très diversifiées:

  • torpeur et hibernation (chauves-souris insectivores et rongeurs)
  • fonction digestive et extraction des nutriments (chauves-souris frugivores et rongeurs)
  • condition corporelle et régulation du métabolisme (chauves-souris frugivores, rongeurs et oiseaux)
  • flux de chaleur (cornes des bovidés et modèles taxidermiques)
  • dépenses d'énergie lors des périodes de grande demande (reproduction chez les oiseaux et hivernage chez les rongeurs).

C’est ce dernier axe qui m’a amené à établir une collaboration avec les Drs Lambrechts et Blondel du Centre d’Écologie Fonctionnelle et Évolutive (CNRS, Montpellier, France) afin de me permettre de marier l’approche écophysiologique avec l’écologie évolutive, collaboration qui ouvre de nouvelles orientations de recherches en France.
