LANCE, S. L., TUBERVILLE, T. D., DUECK, L., HOLZ-SCHIETINGER, C., TROSCLAIR, P. L., ELSEY, R. M. and GLENN, T. C. (2009), Multiyear multiple paternity and mate fidelity in the American alligator, Alligator mississippiensis. Molecular Ecology, 18: 4508–4520. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-294X.2009.04373.x
S.L.L. studies local scale processes such as breeding strategies, survivorship, and dispersal and their combined effects on the maintenance and distribution of genetic diversity within and among populations. In addition, she examines the effect of environmental contaminant exposure on the interplay of behavior, demography, and population genetics. T.D.T. studies the conservation and management of reptile and amphibian populations with an emphasis on translocations and reintroductions. She also is interested in using genetics and long-term mark-recapture data as tools to better understand the ecology and life history of reptiles and amphibians. R.M.E. and P.L.T. study alligator ecology, physiology, nesting behavior, harvest management, egg ranching, and captive husbandry. In addition they both are very interested in waterfowl management. T.C.G. develops and uses DNA technologies to make discoveries and solve problems in ecology, evolution, and environmental health. Massively parallel sequencing technologies and non-traditional biomedical model organisms are current areas of emphasis. L.D. is interested in the application of genetic analyses to conservation practice. In particular she examines the conservation genetics of captive and wild red pandas and the molecular phylogeny of the orchid genus Spiranthes with implications for endangered taxa.
