Dr. Paul Snelgrove is hoping the new Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI) will help Memorial solve a historical challenge.
In a recent article in The Gazette, Dr. Shawn Leroux discusses how Newfoundland and Labrador is a hot-spot for visitors but a research team has uncovered just how popular the island portion of the province is for non-native terrestrial mammals.
Understanding the island’s community of terrestrial mammals, both native and non-native, and their impacts, is the topic of Dr. Shawn Leroux’s collaborative research project with Memorial alumnus and current biology PhD student Justin Strong. Dr. Leroux is an assistant professor in the Department of Biology.
