    Glass sponge reefs in Hecate Strait, British Columbia are threatened by trawling and oil/gas exploration. The reefs are ancient, dated at 9,000 years old, and represent modern analogues of extinct reefs that once existed during the Jurassic period. Given their rarity and vulnerability to damage,...

    Frazil ice particles form in the turbulent supercooled waters of northern rivers prior to freeze-up. The individual particles suspended in the flow are primarily disc-shaped, very small (maximum of ~4 mm in diameter), and upon contact with each other will freeze together into complex formations...

    This image is of a Western Meadowlark nest, a grassland-specific songbird that can be found across the prairies in the summer. Only 25-30% of Canadian grasslands remain, an area that is currently declining due to conversion into agricultural fields and fragmentation due to the construction of...

    A deep sea (1148m) Agassiz trawl is returning to the deck of the CCGS Amundsen during a cruise in the Arctic. This trawl was targeted at sampling benthic epifauna near reported black coral habitat. My research goals are to describe the diversity of sponges in the Eastern Canadian Arctic and...

    My work/research focuses on our relationship with the environment. I'm concerned with what I call nature-culture dislocation. This relates to how we have distanced and mediated ourselves as a culture from the realities of the planet we live on. We curate everything that surrounds us, and...

    Suspended' is a lithographic and toner transfer print. It was created as part of my thesis research project that looks into how we understand flesh when it is separated from the body. Flesh as a substance on its own is in a strange transitional state. It still carries the taboos of the body; we...

    Historians rely overwhelmingly on written sources as their principal evidence. They then take that evidence and add more text, using layers of interpretation, analysis, and argument in order to examine and explain past events. My doctoral dissertation explores consumer behaviour in 17th-century...

    Man’s best friend has been known for centuries as the loving, furry dog. Humans have created a strong, unique bond exclusive to canines. The characteristic of caring makes this partnership desirable. A person yearns for the free-zone a dog provides, free from judgement, criticism, rejection,...

    Sea ice is declining in the Arctic, resulting in the loss of valuable habitat that polar bears need to hunt seals. Polar bears feed on seals when the sea ice is formed and enter a fasting period after the sea ice breaks up in the summer. When sea ice breaks up earlier, bears may seek out other...

    Most people who suffer phobias (around 60–80%) never seek treatment and of those who do seek treatment, approximately 25% either refuse exposure therapy when they hear what it entails or drops out of therapy. One of the reasons for this refusal data could be that the main feature of exposure is...
