Using Population Genetics to Inform Fisheries and Wildlife Conservation – Drs Eric Hallerman & Jess Jones

biology, earth and environment

Conservation can be difficult work on an ever-changing planet, where human activity often runs counter to the needs of endangered species. When budgets and resources are limited, it is critical that conservation plans are designed to be as effective as possible. Dr Eric Hallerman and Dr Jess Jones use population genetics to help conservationists develop management plans that protect the genetic diversity of aquatic organisms while bolstering their populations.
