Genetic Analysis of Wild Turkey Subspecies Across the State of Oklahoma
Serving Since

Michael was born and raised in North Texas.  He earned his bachelor's and master's degrees from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.  Currently, he is working toward a Ph.D. in Wildlife and Rangeland Science at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.  His dissertation research focuses on the genetics of Rio Grande and Eastern subspecies of Wild Turkey across the state of Oklahoma.  This research will examine how fragmentation, landscape structure, and introgression between subspecies may influence genetic diversity.
