- Quantify species abundance across habitats or populations
Habitat Management, Creation, Restoration
- Assessment and analysis of degraded habitats
- Ecological restoration planning and strategy development
- Habitat restoration design and implementation
- Invasive species management and eradication
Biodiversity Monitoring and Inventories
- Species inventory and monitoring

- Tracking and telemetry studies for animal movement and behavior
Determine Genetic Health and Diversity
- Assess level of inbreeding within populations
- Identify gene flow among populations
- Test for genetic bottlenecks of populations
- Determine status of hybrid populations
- Identification of key biodiversity areas and hotspots
- Identification of critical corridors and buffer zones
- Species prioritization based on conservation status and vulnerability
- Long-term planning and adaptive management strategies for sustained conservation efforts
Identifying & Reclassifying Species
- Population and Conservation Genomics

Have Different Goals?
Much More Than A Genetics Lab!
We aren't like other companies who will just run your samples. We supplement your conservation team however it’s most needed: from project planning, through data analysis, and report writing. We will:
- Provide project management support
- Fly out to your project site to collect those samples for you
- Create new primers & try new techniques/protocols
- Do statistical data analysis & write up findings reports
