Personal profile

Research interests

Researchers in the Wildlife Genetic Management Group apply field biology, ecological genomics/genetics and spatial environmental analysis to the population biology of animals under natural and human-impacted conditions. The Wildlife Genetic Management Group's activities are highly collaborative, working with agencies responsible for wildlife and landscape management and other researchers. A major focus is integrating evolutionary processes into conservation biology - how to maintain and restore resilient populations in their ecosystems by achieving successful management of genetic variation.
