Marina Silva-Opps

Biography

Program Coordinator, Wildlife Conservation; Associate Professor

BSc, Université de Montréal; PhD, Université de Montréal

Dr. Silva-Opps, a terrestrial ecologist, investigates how landscape structure, including habitat fragmentation caused largely by human activity, affects the abundance, diversity, and movement of mammals, birds, and amphibians. She also examines the ecological role of body size and how this morphological characteristic relates to the abundance, energy use, and movement of animal species.
