Beren W. Robinson

Professor of Biology, University of Guelph

Beren Robinson studies aquatic organisms from both ecological and evolutionary perspectives. He has contributed significantly to our understanding of the evolutionary origins of fish biodiversity in northern post-glacial lakes of Canada, the United States and Iceland. His research on autotomy or self-amputation is entirely supported by undergraduates. He teaches in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Guelph focusing on courses about aquatic environments, evolutionary ecology and ecological methods.
