Prof. Alison Derry

Intérêts de recherche / Research interests


Ses recherches portent sur les interactions entre l’écologie et l’évolution dans les écosystèmes d’eau douce.  Elle s’intéresse aux interactions éco-évolutives associées aux perturbations naturelles et anthropiques, avec la considération de la dispersion entre des habitats hétérogènes à travers le paysage (metacommunautés évolutives). Elle travaille souvent avec les zooplanctons parce que ces organismes occupent une position trophique intermédiaire entre les algues et les poissons, et ils sont importants pour le flux d’énergie et de biomasse dans les chaînes trophiques aquatiques.  Dr. Alison Derry intègre des idées et des outils de la biologie expérimentale, de la génétique des populations, et de la paléolimnologie, de plus elle combine des études spatiales des variations écologiques, génétiques, et phénotypiques avec des expériences de terrain et de laboratoire.
