Genetics Laboratory focuses on conducting research that is
highly integrated with USFS management needs across the country.
The Wildlife Genetics Laboratory works with States, Tribes, Universities
and private groups answering state-of-the-art questions in wildlife
genetics, and providing answers to pressing wildlife management
Northern Divide Bear Project: A U.S. Geological Survey project
that employed two concurrent NGS, methods
to estimate abundance, distribution, and genetic structure of
the grizzly and black bear populations associated with the Northern
Continental Divide Ecosystem in northwestern Montana. This and
several related bear research projects are headed by Kate Kendall
and Jeff Stetz, members of the GeM Working Group.
and Genetic Laboratory (CCGL) is committed to a greater understanding
of the molecular ecology and systematics of whales, dolphins
and porpoises around the world. Their work on large whales is
pursuing three inter-related themes: reconstructing the past,
assessing the present,and conserving the future. The CCGL is
headed by Dr. Scott Baker, member of the GeM Working Group.
