Dr. Marian Litvaitis is a Professor in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment at the University of New Hampshire. She is interested in the phylogeography, systematics, and genetic connectivity of marine invertebrates, and in the conservation genetics of vertebrates (see the Research pages).

RoryC
  Rory Carroll is a PhD student in NRESS. His current project uses landscape genetic techniques to explore the population structure and connectivity of bobcats in New Hampshire. You can find out more about this project here. He hopes to incorporate his work into conservation policy as well as public and educational forums.
Ellie
 

Ellie Daniels is a MS student in the Wildlife and Conservation program. She is conducting research on blue mussel. She is using microsatellites to genetically analyze the byssal thread attachment strength, byssogenesis, and motility in heterozygous and homozygous individuals, and to explore possible causes for heterozygote deficiency. You can find out more about her project here.

Previously, she has studied the effects of river discontinuity on native fish species distribution in Minnesota with the Department of Natural Resources; while attending Beloit College her research focused on linking movement and abundance of larval eels to the lunar cycle in the Sargasso Sea.

Amanda
  Amanda Cugno is an undergraduate student in the Wildlife and Conservation Biology program and she is working on the bobcat project.
Sarah
  Sarah Clements is a senior in the Wildlife and Conservation Biology program and she also is working on the bobcat project.
