Moore Lab

Welcome to† the research laboratory of Dr. Jennifer Moore

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.

Latest news from the lab


Jen Moore was one of the featured faculty speakers at the West Michigan Regional Undergraduate Science Research Conference (WMRUGS), at Van Andel Institute. Breanna Gould also presented her box turtle work at the conference.


Jen Moore received funding from the Michigan Space Grant Consortium (NASA) for box turtle work.


Welcome, to our new Masterís student Joe Altobelli! Joe joins us from the University of Tennessee, and he will be studying the nesting ecology and neonate survival of eastern box turtles.
