• PhD Student Opportunity: Applications of lake sediment eDNA for reconstructing past ecosystems and establishing restoration targets

    The Community Ecology and Energetics lab (CEElab) at Lakehead University is currently recruiting a domestic (Canadian citizen or permanent resident) PhD student interested in building off ongoing work in the lab to develop eDNA methods for reconstructing aquatic communities using lake sediments, as part of a major collaborative project with Laurentian University and Queen’s University. The anticipated […]

  • Lab website update for 2024

    With the start of a new year, the website has gotten some badly-needed updating. Please peruse through for a current listing of students, lab photos and publications through to the end of 2023. Looking forward to making time to keep things a bit more up to date moving forward. Also, be sure to keep an […]

  • A new start through COVID

    Long time, no post but wanted to put some big kudos out to the lab for successfully navigating field work this past year, and to welcome several new students to the lab; Ben Wood, Wyatt Beach, Kelvi Toskovich, Tristan Morrison and Adam Poulin (click on their names to learn more about their research). Also, congrats […]

  • Welcome new students for 2020-2021

    We have a great crop of students that joined the lab this year! New MSc students include Amber Fedus joined us from Queen’s University, and will be working up data from a whole-ecosystem macrophyte removal experiment; Danni Gartshore is looking at the impacts of invasive spiny water flea on early growth rates of fishes; Mark […]

  • Great achievements by students

    Some major awards by students in the lab worth recognizing in 2020. All our PhD students really shone this year; Haley MacLeod was awarded a Garfield Weston grant, Alex Ross received an NSERC PGS-D award, and Ryan Grow received an OGS award. Tyler Ripku received a MITACS accelerate award, and both our undergraduate students last summer […]

  • So many things!

    Lots has happened in the lab during the spring of 2019. Graydon McKee and Marissa Wegher completed their MSc theses; Graydon joined the Kidd lab at McMaster as a technician, and Marissa joined the OMNRF. Ty Colvin was awarded an NSERC PGS-M award and will be starting with Paul Snelgrove at MUN in the fall, […]

  • Digging out…

    After three major dumps of snow, it was time to move the lab vehicles so that the grounds crew could plow our section of parking lot. Also, good excuse to scrape the 2-ish feet of snow off the trucks that have accumulated in the past month 😳 . Thanks to everyone for helping dig out!

  • Cool new toy for the CEElab

    Well, we finally got our new Trident ROV to help us with doing sculpin and crayfish counts as part of our Mysis recolonization experiment (SHRRIMP). Our main pilot for the project this year has been Ty Colvin,  superstar undergraduate student at Lakehead University. Collecting the data meant driving out for 2 weekends in a row […]

  • Mysis in motion!

    Our ecosystem restoration project focused on the recolonization of Mysis is officially underway. We successfully managed to capture 10,000 Mysis from Lake 224 and add them to Lake 223. If you want to read more about the experiment, you can check it out here. Here’s a good twitter thread on how that all went down last […]

  • People playing ice hockey on a lake

    CEELab Classic 2018!

    Kudos to the brave members of the lab (including honorary members) who braved the chunky ice for a solid game of shinny out on Lake Tamblyn! Might be the last time skates hit that ice this year (after an hour we were skating on slush) but still a good time (once we found the ice […]
