In our Conservation and Ecological Genetics Lab we focus on the field of spatial ecology and spatial genetics and their implications for conservation biology and wildlife management.


Specifically, we study spatial and genetic structure of populations, factors affecting range expansion following reintroduction, and movement patterns of individuals under different landscape scenarios.


The lab is part of Mitrani Department of Desert Ecology (MDDE) at The Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research (BIDR). It is located in Midreshet Ben-Gurion and is part of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.
