GRADUATE AND POSTDOCTORAL STUDIES
EVOLUTIONARY AND CONSERVATION
DOUGLAS W. MORRIS
- Our research lab has openings for motivated students interested in pursuing either a
Master's degree in Biology or Master's degree in Forestry. Possibilities also exist for Ph.D.
studies at Lakehead and in collaboration with other universities, and postdoctoral inquiries are always welcome.
Current interests focus on the evolution of habitat selection, on the evolution of life histories and
on their respective roles in population dynamics, in community organization, and in the
conservation of biodiversity. We are especially interested in linking the optimal behavioural
strategies of individuals to their population, metapopulation, community and conservation
Please address inquiries, including a statement of research interests, to:

Lakehead University is optimally located for field studies in boreal ecosystems, and as a base for
field research in western and northern Canada. Programs in Biology, Forestry and Outdoor
Recreation, Parks and Tourism share an ecological and conservation theme that is also reflected
in the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources' Centre for Northern Forest Ecosystem Research
(CNFER, located on campus).
