Research Overview

Researchers in this team apply field biology, ecological genomics/genetics and spatial environmental analysis to the population biology of animals under natural and human-impacted conditions. The research of PART is highly collaborative working with agencies responsible for wildlife and landscape management and other researchers. A major focus is integrating evolutionary processes into conservation biology - how to maintain and restore resilient populations in their ecosystems.  This requires appropriately connected populations of large size, with maximal useful genetic diversity.
