Dr. Jennifer Frey-Mammalian Diversity and Conservation Laboratory

Welcome to my Mammalian Diversity and Conservation Laboratory. The common question that unites work in this lab is: “what lives where and why?” We address this question both at the very broad spatial and temporal scale of ecological and historical biogeography (i.e., insular systems and continental regions) as well as at the finer scale of locality-specific habitat. Answers to this question contribute to a basic understanding of mammals and they form the basis for understanding many conservation and management problems, such as extinction, biological invasions, and response to environmental change. Thus, this research typically has direct conservation and management applications, which can be categorized within a new discipline, Conservation Biogeography.
