Conservation Genetics Ph.D. Graduate Student Assistantship to conduct research on landscape genetics of northern leopard frogs. The project will analyze an existing dataset to evaluate gene flow among isolated wetlands, as means of assessing biotic connectedness. Additional sampling and possible development of additional molecular markers will be pursued as warranted. This project is funded through an EPA grant and is a collaborative project between Craig Stockwell (NDSU) and David Mushet (USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center). Field work will take place in the upper Great Plains.
