This research examines aspects relating to the taxonomy, ecology and biogeography of invertebrate species found in the Northwest Atlantic. The work will compare morphological and genetic variability in populations of Lady Crabs, Giant File Clams and scavenging amphipods along the east coast of North America and the Canadian Arctic, and will also investigate the functional morphology of a deep-water, burrowing Heart Urchin in the St. Lawrence Estuary.

Principal investigator: Jean-Marc Gagnon.
