Dr. Joshua Reece
Formally: I am an evolutionary biologist who also works in conservation biology. Students in my lab work on a wide range of projects, but they typically work on either molecular phylogenetics, comparative phylogenetic methods, or conservation planning in the context of climate change.
I am a graduate student here at Fresno State in my final semester! I am studying Western Pond Turtles and using genetics to identify species and assist zoos with captive breeding programs.
I am a graduate student interested in studying phylogenetics, conservation biology, and geographic information systems. I am studying how dredging impacts the biodiversity of coastal ecosystems in Morro Bay.
I am a first-year graduate student here at Fresno State! I enjoy all aspects of the outdoors! My ultimate goal is to become a research scientist and I would like to work in the field of conservation biology.
I’m a biology major interested in marine biology. In the lab, I am working on analyzing bat acoustic data from Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks. I am also studying how coastal dredging impacts the biodiversity of Morro Bay. I also love organic chemistry!
I’m an undergraduate biology major! In the lab, I am researching patterns of bat biodiversity on the CSU Fresno campus and in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks using bat acoustic data. In the future, I plan to attend medical school. I also love beans!
I’m an undergraduate biology major interested in marine biology and learning about animals. In the lab, I am working on analyzing acoustic recordings of bats collected from Yosemite and Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks. After college, I would like to pursue a career in marine animal rehabilitation.
I’m an undergraduate student majoring in biology and minoring in chemistry. I’m interested in molecular biology research! In the lab, I am working with Rachel to research western pond turtle genetics to identify species and help zoos develop captive breeding programs.
I’m a senior biology major and interested in the bat monitoring and Morro Bay projects in the lab. I enjoy hiking and love all different types of animals. In the future, I plan to look into veterinary school or Ph.D. programs.
I’m an undergraduate earth and environmental sciences major. In the lab, I am working on analyzing the spatial complexity of sites on the CSU Fresno campus where we are planning to install batboxes.
I am currently an undergraduate biology major here at Fresno State. In the lab, I am working on analyzing acoustic bat data provided by Pierson and Rainey. In the future, I hope to attend either medical or PA school!
I am an undergraduate biology student. Currently, I am analyzing bat calls depending on their frequencies. I love being outdoors and I’m also a sucker for classic literature. In the future, I would like to be a wildlife biologist focusing on wetland ecosystems.
Past Lab Members
Chris graduated from CSU Fresno with his Master’s degree in biology in Spring 2018! His background and interests involved studying the population genetics of mammals and using phylogenetics to predict how future land-use change will affect species of special concern in the next century.
Amber graduated in Spring 2019 with a BS in Biology. She is interested in environmental conservation. In the lab, Amber worked on analyzing bat acoustic data from Yosemite National Park to determine where and why certain species are more prominent. She loves art, photography, and the outdoors. In the future, Amber hopes to have a career working with endangered animal species.
