Regents Professor Emeritus

I am Regents Professor of Biology Emeritus at the University of Montana. I received my Ph.D. 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.
