Teaching and Research Interests

Professor Jordan teaches Biology II: Ecology and Evolution (BIOL 1620/1621), Fundamentals of Ecology (BIOL 2600), and Conservation Biology (BIOL 3660).

Professor Jordan's research and teaching are motivated by a desire to use the tools of wildlife biology and conservation genetics to restore degraded landscapes. He and his students use a mix of field, molecular, and quantitative methods to help conservation organizations and resource managers address critical conservation questions. His current research includes noninvasive monitoring of carnivore populations and an analysis of genetic connectivity of fishers in Vermont.


Professor Jordan received his B.S. in Biology from the University of Puget Sound and his Ph.D. in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management from the University of California, Berkeley. He has also taught at Green Mountain College and Vermont Law School.
