Wildlife Ecology and Genetics Lab

University of Regina, Regina, Saskatchewan
What the facility does

Genetic analyses, fish sampling and aging wildlife habitat-use assessment.

Areas of expertise

The Wildlife Ecology and Genetics Lab is geared toward understanding interactions between humans and wildlife. To this end, we conduct field studies of habitat use, genetic studies of population structure and diversity and aquatic studies on fish populations.
