Dr. Mary Peacock is an Associate Professor in the Biology Department at the University of Nevada, Reno. Dr. Peacock is also a faculty member and current co-director of the Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology Graduate Group.

Research in the Peacock lab focuses primarily on population viability questions. We are especially interested in the effect of habitat fragmentation on population dynamics. This general interest acts as an umbrella for a variety of research projects that range from basic research on metapopulation dynamics to population viability modeling of populations in both fragmented and non-fragmented systems, hybridization studies, and phylogeographic and phylogenetic approaches to species conservation issues. Mary and her students use a variety of research tools to address these questions including molecular genetic techniques, population viability modeling, and mark-recapture methods.
