Conservation Genetics, Landscape Genetics, Molecular Ecology


My research centres on determining the evolutionary causes and ecological consequences of variation in levels of neutral and adaptive genetic diversity in natural populations. Ongoing studies investigate:

 (1) the role of dispersal and connectivity in fragmented populations and the effect of metapopulation dynamics on the viability of natural populations.

(2) how species cope with extreme environmental conditions and adapt to alpine environments







Scientific output is often measured by the number of publications. However, I decided rather than listing all papers here to invite everyone to comment on recent results and papers. I am open to discuss projects and findings and getting comments. Thus everyone interested in our work can comment on facebook, follow twitterlogo #gsegelbacher or drop us an email.

A list of publications (for those who want pdfs or get an idea what we are doing) can be found here (incl. most pdfs):
