New funding for the modelling of Pothole wetland dynamics

A multi-partner research team led by Genevieve Ali was recently successful in getting funds from the Lake Winnipeg Basin Stewardship Fund (Round 6). The goal of the project – to start in 2013 and end in 2017 –  is to develop a simulation tool that will allow researchers and land managers to examine and measure the potential positive impacts of various methods to restore and conserve wetlands across Prairie landscapes, as well as determine priority areas for future restoration activities. We are currently recruiting one PhD student or two Master students to work on this project; interested candidates are invited to contact Genevieve Ali at
