Simon Guillemette (M.Sc.) holds a bachelor's degree in biology and a master’s degree in animal ecology research. While working on his master's degree at Université de Sherbrooke he studied the impact of climate on animal populations. Specifically, he investigated the effects of local weather variables and a large-scale climate index on the seasonal mass changes of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis). While participating in this major research project he honed his skills in statistics and data handling. His current mandate as a research assistant is to manage data from the ongoing soil fertility trials across Québec. This data will eventually be used to create the MAPAQ soil fertility reference charts.
Simon Guillemette is involved in preparing a database derived from the Program to Revise Québec’s Soil Fertility Reference Charts.
