Our Wildlife Behavioural Ecology Lab has a main research program on the ecology of complex terrestrial systems at multiple spatial and temporal scales using the systems of trophically transmitted parasites with complex life cycles (Echinococcus spp.) with mammalian host as case studies.

Within this program we currently have several research projects

Wildlife Behavioural Ecology in large mammals

Wildlife Health and Ecology

  • The ecology of transmission of Echinococcus species
  • the One Health initiative: preventing Alveolar Echinococcosis in Alberta
