About the Lab

My research program in ecology, conservation biology, and herpetology is focused on a central question in conservation: “What allows a species to persist and conversely, what causes it to disappear?” I study and write about topics in ecology, herpetology, wildlife trade, sustainable use of biodiversity, and endangered species. Our research at the Fitzgerald Lab draws from the fields of population and community ecology, physiological ecology, and landscape ecology.
