Moore Lab

Welcome to the herp conservation and molecular ecology

lab @ GVSU!

Our research focuses on the spatial ecology, population demographics, and conservation genetics of at-risk species. Our overarching aim is to understand the factors that impact movement, functional connectivity (dispersal and gene flow), and population viability. We strive to focus on applied research questions that address anthropogenic impacts to species and that can be used directly for conservation and management. We regularly use tools such as mark-recapture, radio telemetry, GIS, spatial statistics, and landscape genetics. Our research deals with a range of taxa, but tends to focus on amphibians and reptiles because of their unique life history characteristics, and their globally imperiled status.
