About the lab

We study the connection between evolution and ecology to solve conservation challenges related to fisheries and climate change. We use a combination of theory and statistical analyses of empirical data sets, as well as field studies and experiments on marine and freshwater fishes (and sometimes other things!). At Virginia Tech, we are part of the Department of Fish and Wildlife Conservation, the Global Change Center, and the Center for Coastal Studies.
  • Teaching

    Dr. Holly Kindsvater teaches Population Dynamics (FiW 4414) and sometimes co-teaches Principles of Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FiW 2114). We are also developing undergraduate courses for the Marine Option of the Fish Conservation Major - stay tuned.
