Polar lakes and rivers : limnology of Arctic and Antarctic aquatic ecosystems
He has served on the editorial boards of Antarctic Science and Polar Biology, and on various research committees and studies. He teaches undergraduate, graduate and field courses in limnology at Laval University, and has been an instructor in the outreach initiative 'Students on Ice' to Antarctica. Her research interests focus on carbon cycling in polar lakes, protozoan ecophysiology, viral bacterial dynamics, bioprospecting for novel biochemicals, remote sensing of lake environments and biological processes on glaciers.
She has published two sole authored books, and peer reviewed articles and reviews. Brian Dempson Peter T.

It is the first attempt paid to concentrate the various problems of polar limnology in one volume. In my opinion, it will be a long time before River and Lakes is improved upon as the definitive comparative study of Arctic and Antarctic aquatic systems. Description This is the first book to describe the ecology of high latitude lakes, rivers and glacial environments in both the North and South polar regions.
From the lake-rich floodplains of the Arctic to the deep, enigmatic waters of Lake Vostok, Antarctica, these regions contain some of the most extraordinary aquatic ecosystems on Earth. They provide a fascinating diversity of habitats for plant, animal and microbial communities, and are proving to be valuable model systems for exploring many ecological themes including landscape-lake interactions, adaptation of life to environmental extremes, and controls on the structure and functioning of aquatic ecosystems.
Some of these waters also have direct global implications, including permafrost thaw lakes as sources of greenhouse gases, subglacial aquatic environments as a storehouse of ancient microbes, and Arctic rivers as major inputs of freshwater and organic carbon to the World Ocean. Given that many polar areas are experiencing greater climate warming than at lower latitudes, these ecosystems can also be viewed as sentinels of global change.
This timely volume brings together many of the world's leading researchers in polar limnology to describe these diverse aquatic environments and their ecology. It introduces each major ecosystem type, examines the similarities and differences between Arctic and Antarctic systems as well as their responses to environmental change, and describes new frontiers for future research. A glossary of terms is provided for non-specialists, and a set of colour plates introduces the ecosystems and their biota. Polar Lakes and Rivers will be of value to students and specialist researchers alike, as well as to those with a more general interest in aquatic ecology, polar environments or global change who require an authoritative overview of this fast emerging topic.
