What are the impacts of predation by Striped Bass and other predators on chinook salmon, delta smelt and other native species? We use a genetic approach to identify all life stages of these prey, including eggs and larvae to quantify the incidence of predation on these species.
Population genetic analysis of Lahontan cutthroat trout populations in the Walker Basin
In California: Slinkard, By Day, Mill, Wolf, Silver Creeks - all tributaries to the east and west forks of the Walker River.
In Nevada: Corey and/or Coldwater creeks (tributaries to Walker Lake)
Integrating genetics, physiology, and modeling to understand mechanisms of splittail connectivity
How many white sturgeon populations exist? How do natural and anthropogenic barriers affect white sturgeon dispersal?
Is the white sturgeon an octoploid or tetraploid?
Invasion biology and molecular ecology of brackish water hydrozoans in the San Francisco Estuary
Assessment of rainbow trout introgression with the species utilizing both microsatellite markers and SNPs
