Multidisciplinary approaches
to species conservation and management



Welcome to the  research laboratory of Dr. Jennifer Moore at Grand Valley State University. Our research focuses on the spatial ecology, population demographics, and conservation genetics of at-risk species. We aim to understand the factors that impact movement, functional connectivity, and population viability by focusing on research questions that can be applied directly for conservation and management.

Two new publications

February 11, 2020

Congrats to lab alum Breanna Gould for publishing her undergraduate research on eastern box turtles! This paper was recently accepted in the journal Copeia. Jen Moore also recently collaborated on a paper with James Paterson that investigated road avoidance in Blanding's turtles and eastern massasaugas. Check it out!

Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference

January 30, 2020

The lab recently attended the Midwest Fish and Wildlife Conference in frosty Springfield, IL! Arin Thacker presented her massasauga occupancy results, and Jenny Kovach, Alyssa Swinehart, and Carly Brouwers all presented posters. Great job everyone!

Welcome to our newest graduate student!

December 2019

Big welcome to Mick Coury who recently joined the lab! Mick will be working on the survival and spatial ecology of spotted turtles in Southwest Michigan.
