AGA Travel Scholarship Award for the fifth Global Invertebrate Genomics Alliance Conference

About the author Emily Giles is a Phd Candidate at the Universidad Astral de Chile. Her work involves evaluating the contributions of evolutionary forces and genetic constraints to genomic divergence during speciation with gene flow. Specifically, she works with species and populations of the genus Scurria, true limpets common to the marine intertidal of the […]


Behind the Scientist: An Interview with Shawn Narum

About the Scientist Shawn Narum is the Chief Scientist of the Fishery Science Department in the Hagerman Genetics Lab at the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC). He has 20+ years of experience as lead geneticist with CRITFC and manages several studies of salmon and steelhead in the Columbia Basin. He has many, many articles under his author […]


Ne curiosity about effective population size?

About the authors: Miranda Wade received her B.S. in Biological Science from Colorado State University and her dual PhD in Integrative Biology and Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, and Behavior from Michigan State University. During her time in Mariah Meek’s lab at MSU, her work consisted of using ‘omics to address various conservation questions in both a […]


Conference catch-up: Memories of Mexico – Agavoideae Conference and Genotyping By Sequencing Workshop

About the blog author: Dr Christopher (Chris) Irwin Smith is an evolutionary ecologist, a Professor of Biology at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, and current AGA council member. His research focuses on the pollination biology of yuccas and combines traditional field ecology with molecular genetics and genomics. Chris was a 2022 Fulbright Garcia Robles US […]


AGA Special Event Award: XV ReGeneC workshop in Patagonia Subantarctic, the southernmost workshop sponsored by the AGA

About the Blog Author ReGeneC, La Red Latinoamericana de Genética para la Conservación (or in English, The Latin American Conservation Genetics Network), was born in 2004 with a main goal: to advance the science and practice of conservation genetics in a region facing enormous conservation challenges and yet insufficient capacity in any one country to […]


Subspecies… They Matter! The Tale of the Rough Footed Mud Turtle 

About the author:   Brinkley Thornton wrote this blog for Dr. Krueger-Hadfield’s Fall 2022 Ecological Genetics course. Brinkley is currently a graduate student in the Department of Biology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham seeking her MS degree in Biology. She works in the Krueger-Hadfield Evolutionary Ecology Lab. Her research focuses on uncovering the […]


EECG Embarkation: Mito-nuclear coevolution in the Savannah sparrow, a species with deeply-divergent and broadly sympatric mitochondrial lineages

About the Author Dr. Phred Benham is a post-doctoral researcher at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California Berkeley with Dr. Rauri C. K. Bowie. Phred is broadly interested in the evolutionary mechanisms shaping avian adaptation to different environments. You can follow his research on his website and on mastodon. Eukaryotic organisms like plants, […]


EECG Embarkation: Mix ingredients, bake for a few million years: an evo-devo recipe for studying phenotypic evolution

About the blog author  Dr Luca Livraghi is an evolutionary-developmental biologist and Post-Doc at George Washington University in Washington DC. His work focuses on investigating genotype-phenotype relationships through butterfly wing patterns. He is a terrible cook. Follow Luca on twitter @LivraghiLuca  Culinary inspiration:  You are hiking through your favorite alpine trail, enjoying the breathtaking views. […]


EECG Embarkation: Testing genomic mechanisms and consequences of species persistence in rediscovered amphibians

  About the author Kyle Jaynes (he/him) is a PhD Candidate in Dr. Sarah Fitzpatrick’s lab at Michigan State University. Heis broadly interested in the evolutionary ecology of amphibians and reptiles, and currently thinks mostly about conservation genetic applications to endangered amphibians.
