Allendorf, Fred

Regents Professor of Biology
Division of Biological Sciences
The University of Montana - Missoula

I am Regents Professor of Biology at the University of Montana and a Professorial Research Fellow at Victoria University of Wellington. I received my PhD from the University of Washington in 1975, and was a post-doctoral scholar in Denmark and England. My research focuses on the application of population and evolutionary genetics to problems in conservation biology. My book “Conservation and the Genetics of Populations” (2007), co-authored with Gordon Luikart, provides an understanding of how genetics can be used to conserve species threatened with extinction.
