2020-03-17: The global COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold as do institutional and government responses. We are monitoring the situation and responding to guidance and imperatives from Queen's University. For now we intend to stay open for individual researchers for the Spring and Summer but encourage them to access our facilities and landbase each day from home packing their own bagged lunch. We will not host gatherings of more than 10 people, and field courses, large workshops and other such meetings will not be hosted until further notice. For researchers from farther away, we will work to accommodate you in our facilities but will seek to ensure 'social distancing' with only one person per cabin, plenty of hand sanitizer and soap and water, and access to cooking facilities so that individuals may provide for themselves (we are exploring kitchen options). Please contact us should you have questions and note that our plans and actions may change as the situation evolves.

Should you have questions regarding activities at QUBS please contact our Senior Manager Sonia Nobrega, Operations Managers of our two campuses, Aron Zolderdo and Adam Morcom, of QUBS Director Stephen Lougheed.

Please check back regularly for the latest updates.

QUBS featured at 2014 American Fisheries Society Conference in Quebec City

August 18th, 2014

A special symposium titled “A retrospective of fisheries advances emanating from the Queen’s University Biological Station” was held Monday Aug 18. Seven presentations covered a range of topics, from the foundations of community ecology laid by the late Dr. J. Allen Keast to more recent and current research:

  • Jennifer Harker – Foundations of freshwater ecology – the legacy of Dr. Allen Keast
  • Dr. Bryan Neff (UWO) – Sunfishes of Opinicon: Mating tactics to foraging ecology
  • Jeff Koppleman (DNR – Missouri) – Hybridization among sunfishes – the saga continues
  • Dr. Steve Cooke (Carleton U) – Black bass parental care – where behaviour and physiology meet
  • Caleb Hasler (U of Illinois) – Warner Lake: Using a whole-lake acoustic telemetry array to understand Largemouth Bass
  • Julie Claussen (INHS) – Impacts of invasive species on Smallmouth Bass reproduction in the St. Lawrence River

The sessions were well-attended and culminated in a panel discussion focused on the role of field stations in research and the challenges into the future.
