Dr. Mark V. Lomolino is a professor at State University of New York, Syracuse. His research focuses on biogeography, ecology, evolution and conservation biology. I am especially interested in processes influencing the diversity and conservation of endangered species. My research combines empirical and theoretical approaches across a broad range of scales to explore patterns in the geography of nature and to develop effective strategies for conserving biological diversity. I thoroughly enjoy teaching a variety of courses, and advising and interacting with students interested in biology, ecology and conservation biology.
