2. Genetic diversity of small populations

Conservation Genetics focuses on small populations, past study species include white sharks, silversides, sturgeon, and winter flounder, ongoing research includes salmon and bullsharks.

Current Projects

  • Conservation Genetics of Bullsharks in the northwest Gulf of Mexico
  • Genetic diversity & biocomplexity of chinook salmon

Past Projects

  • comparison of effective population sizes of white sharks in the Northwest Atlantic and Southern Africa
  • Population genetics and geometric morphometrics of a marine fish in a highly-fragmented, inland habitat.
  • Genetic diversity of effective population size of Atlantic sturgeon river spawning populations.
  • Small effective number of breeders in a formerly abundant marine fish.
