Aquatic Ecology Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Oak Ridge National Environmental Research Park
The Kingsbury lab uses both basic and applied methods to improve conservation management
of imperiled species, primarily snakes, turtles, and other wetland fauna.
The Niemiller lab focuses on a broad array of ecological and evolutionary processes (from the genomic to ecosystem level),
with emphasis on the origin, maintenance, and conservation of subterranean animals and habitats.
The Fitzpatrick lab focuses on the genetics and biogeography of speciation as well as the evolution of symbiosis,
with emphasis on the evolutionary and conservation implications of hybridization
