FORMATION
  • Ph.D. en sciences forestières, 1991 (Université Laval)
  • M.Sc. en biologie végétale, 1984 (Université de Montréal)
  • B.Sc. en sciences biologiques, 1981 (Université de Montréal)
THÈMES DE RECHERCHE

Nos activités de recherche portent sur l’impact des perturbations naturelles (feu, épidémie d’insectes) et anthropiques (coupe forestière) sur le mode de recrutement, la diversité génétique et la structure clonale du peuplier faux-tremble (Populus tremuloïdes). L’objectif est de mieux comprendre la nature des mécanismes qui contrôlent la dynamique de recrutement des peuplements de tremble soit:

  • les relations entre les patrons de défoliation par la livrée des forêts et les pertes de croissance/mortalité à l’échelle de l’arbre et du peuplement
  • les relations entre le drageonnement, le greffage racinaire et la structure clonale du tremble et dans quelle mesure les clones de tremble constituent des unités physiologiques ou/et génétiques.

Nous nous intéressons également à l’impact de la fragmentation des populations sur la capacité reproductrice et la structure de la variabilité génétique chez les essences méridionales à la zone de transition entre l’érablière à bouleau jaune et la sapinière à bouleau blanc. Notre hypothèse est que les populations fragmentées, situées à la zone de transition, sont les plus susceptibles d’être à l’origine de l’expansion de l’aire de distribution des essences méridionales dans un contexte de réchauffement climatique. Nos objectifs sont d’évaluer la capacité des populations marginales à se reproduire localement et à maintenir et /ou accroître leur distribution.

Finalement un volet amélioration génétique des arbres à croissance rapide est en développement et comprend la sélection du matériel le mieux adapté aux conditions boréales.
