Emily Monk

M.Sc. Student

I joined the lab in May 2022 to start a masters on the snowshoe hare project. I got my start in ecology at the University of Colorado in the US, where I did an honors thesis and subsequent research on American pikas. I’m passionate about the impacts of climate change on wildlife, and am excited to study another lagomorph species. My project will look at a long term data set to examine the impact of climate change on snowshoe hare coat color change and mismatch over time in the Yukon. Additionally, I will examine the impacts of hare mismatch on body condition and survival in Newfoundland.
