Population genetics of wolf harvest -- paper out in Conservation Genetics

I am excited to announce that my paper on the effects of harvest on population genetics and gene flow in Minnesota wolves came out as an "online first" paper in Conservation Genetics this week! The paper can be found here, or you can access the PDF here.

This is my first peer-reviewed publication, and I am excited that it is finally out!
