Jennifer Provencher, Adjunct professor, Department of Biology and Yasmeen Zahaby, Masters Student, Department of Biology wrote a wonderfully informative article discussing how Arctic wildlife are impacted by oil and climate change.
Jennifer’s research focus is on the effects of plastic pollution, including the cumulative effects of plastic pollution in relation to contaminants, parasites and diseases in wildlife. Most of Jennifers research has focused on the Arctic. Yasmeen’s thesis focuses on building ecotoxicology tools to facilitate effects-based monitoring of contaminants in Arctic seabirds.
