Chris Buddle has been working at McGill since 2002, in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences at McGill’s Macdonald Campus. His research program is focused on the biodiversity and community ecology of insects and spiders, with an emphasis on Arctic systems. He has long been involved with academic programs and administration in the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, most recently teaching field biology and ecology in the Environmental Biology Program, and holding the position as Associate Dean (Student Affairs). Chris was appointed Dean of Students at McGill, on 1 August 2016, for a five-year term.

Arthropods (including insects, spiders and their relatives) comprise much of the known biodiversity of the planet, and contribute vastly to ecosystem functions. However, we know very little about what mechanisms explain species diversity of many terrestrial arthropods, and one common theme running throughout my research program is about exactly this. Additionally, it is important to understand how and in what way insects and spiders are affected by our demands on natural resources. One way to aid in conservation of biodiversity is to learn more about the role of arthropods in important ecosystem processes, and to understand some of the links between habitat features, ecosystem processes and arthropod communities.
I was originally trained as an ecologist, but learned about the value of good taxonomy when completing my Ph.D. on spiders occurring in Alberta's boreal forest. Good ecology is built upon good taxonomy, and ecologists must strive for accurate species-level identifications, and the value of natural history information cannot be understated.
