Graduate Studies: Snail biology and parasitism

Potential projects are available for graduate studies (M.Sc. or Ph.D.).
The St. Lawrence Centre, Environment Canada, Montreal, is about to
undertake a major initiative encompassing multidisciplinary studies to
determine the consequences of water level control and variation on the
St. Lawrence River ecosystem. Themes include wetlands, food webs, users,
and erosion. Within the food web theme, one project is aimed at
investigating the abundance, productivity, species composition, and
trematode parasite fauna of gastropods in the St. Lawrence River in
relation to water levels. This project will be run concurrently and in
close association with others studying macrophytes and periphyton, and
the benthos. The program will be underway beginning in the spring/summer
of 1999. Funding is expected to be approved for 5 years.

Students will be co-supervised by David Marcogliese (Environment Canada)
and J. D. McLaughlin (Concordia University). For further information on
