Prof Richard F. Preziosi
I have two main areas of interest; genetic diversity and conservation. For most areas of my research, these two topics overlap in answering questions about the sustainability of species in ex-situ conservation or the management of wild populations. I am also interested in pure species conservation (especially of amphibians), in the links between conservation and local human communities, and in statistical genetics. I am very interested in experimental design and statistics and the application of novel methods of data analysis.
In general, I am interested in how genetic diversity within a species influences its diversity and evolution. Beyond this, diversity within a species can impact other species or even entire communities of species and the ecosystem services they provide.
