Kate Cleary “Genetics and the Movement of Wildlife Populations”
Kate Cleary, St. Lawrence University Professor, will join us to tell the story of how scientists in our area have been using genetic methods to track movements of animals from moose, to fishers, to boreal birds. There are some really fascinating examples of animals previously extirpated from a region coming back and recolonizing on their own, and genetic approaches are really the only way to tell us where those colonizing populations came from. Genetic approaches can also help tell us when we need to “genetically rescue” an isolated or endangered species like the spruce grouse.
