Impact of forestry practices and soil-plant relationships in boreal softwood and mixedwood forests.
Factors controlling forest productivity, nutrient cycling and soil carbon dynamics.
Participates in the ECOLEAP project on the prediction of forest productivity.
Adjunt professor at the Centre d‘étude de la forêt (CEF), where he supervises graduate students.
Forest engineer with a bachelor’s degree in applied science (1985) and a master’s degree in forest pedology (1988) from Université Laval. Ph.D. in forest ecology and soils from the University of Alaska–Fairbanks (1990). Postdoctoral studies in forest ecology at Université Laval from 1990 to 1991, and at the Université du Québec à Montréal from 1991 to 1993.
