Conservation and Population Genetics

    Back to Research   

Use of genetic approaches to address the conservation needs of wildlife has been a long-standing pursuit in my lab since my dissertation
(Goldstein et al. 1999, Roemer et al. 2001, Aguilar et al. 2004).

Studies in progress include the phylogeography of the banner-tailed
kangaroo rat, habitat-dependent selection during dispersal and its affect
on the genetic structure of  mesocarnivores and the delineation of
corridors for the conservation of puma populations in Arizona and New
Mexico. This latter study is a collaborative effort between personnel from
state game agencies, NGOs and universities.
