Bio/Research

Dr. Rooney is originally from just outside of Lucan, Ontario where he grew up on a small farm wandering through the forests and playing in the streams. He believes this upbringing underpins his fascination with the complexity and dynamics of ecological systems. Through his academic education, he was fortunate to work with scientists that carried out experimental, observational and theoretical studies and his research program employs all of these approaches in addressing ecological questions. His laboratory is particularly interested in research at the interface of ecosystem ecology (e.g. biogeochemical cycling and ecosystem metabolism) and biodiversity science (e.g. food web structure, species distributions). The overarching goal of our research program is to use these constructs to identify the structures and processes that confer stability to ecosystems in the face of human perturbations.
