This research cluster was created in 2009 to create a synergy between Bishop’s University researchers in the broad field of the environment. The goal is to allow collaborative projects focused on monitoring climatic and environmental changes at various spatial and temporal scales (past and present), examining their impacts on organisms and ecosystems, or proposing societal and economic adaptations in order to respond to and/or limit the impact of environmental change (for more details on the various research themes, please see Research Activities).
