Jennifer A. Moore

Welcome to my website! I am a conservation biologist and molecular ecologist in the Biology Department at Grand Valley State University. My research and teaching interests are broad, and include landscape genetics, behavioral ecology, conservation genetics, and population and spatial ecology. My recent research has focused on using landscape genetic techniques that combine methods from population genetics and landscape ecology (GIS and spatial statistics) to understand how natural and anthropogenic landscape features impact functional connectivity between and among wildlife populations. I am particularly interested in amphibians and reptiles because of their unique life history characteristics, and their globally imperiled status.
