2011 Pehr-Kalm Grant

The Pehr-Kalm Grant was created in the spring of 2010 by Les Amis du Jardin botanique de Montréal (The Friends of the Montreal Botanical Garden) to support students wishing to pursue graduate level studies at the IRBV. Marielle Babineau, a graduate student in Anne Bruneau’s laboratory, and Mathieu Bélanger Morin, a graduate student in Jacques Brodeur’s laboratory, each received a grant of $5,000. Marielle’s research is on the evolution of Malagasy legumes; Mathieu studies the impact of partial clearcuts on xylophagous insects in the balsam fir-white birch domain.
