Welcome to the Biodiversity Assessment & Monitoring Lab!
Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences
Texas A&M University
Our lab interests include conservation biology, tropical ecology, the IUCN Global Assessments, conservation planning, and the assessment and monitoring of patterns and trends in biodiversity. Under this broad umbrella, the interests of past and current students is diverse. The Lab PI, Dr. Thomas Lacher, Jr., and both undergraduate and graduate students are actively involved in the Applied Biodiversity Sciences graduate program. We have conducted research focused on mammals, birds, amphibians, and people, with an underlying emphasis on conservation, in all of its diversity and complexity.
