Research Associate in the Marine Gene Probe Laboratory, Resource & Conservation Genetics & Biotechnology group.
Dr. Jones' current research focuses on the application of genetic markers to address questions central to the conservation of anadromous and marine species in Atlantic Canada. Previously, his work has focused on the conservation genetics of Atlantic salmon and brook trout and included examining factors affecting reproductive success and their implications for effective population size, temporal changes in genetic variation, and factors associated with low genetic variability in some populations. Matthew most recently worked on the population and mating structure of American lobster and is currently working on the mating structure of Atlantic cod.
Key words: genetics, conservation, Atlantic salmon, Atlantic cod, brook trout, lobster, reproductive success
