The Plant Ecology Research Laboratory (PERL) is based on field and lab studies that examine the ecology and environmental physiology of plants exposed to multiple stresses (climatic, chemical, herbivory, etc). Projects range from adaptation and metal tolerance of plants on industrially impacted landscapes to limitations to natural regeneration of declining forest tree species.
Dr. Jeff Dech has recently joined the Plant Ecology Research Laboratory team as an NSERC Industrial Research and Development Fellow. He is working on a collaborative project between the Forestry Research Partnership (Tembec) and Nipissing University.
