Mark Jordan is an adjunct professor of ecology in Vermont Law School's Distance Learning Program and an assistant professor of biology at Seattle University, where he teaches a variety of courses in the Marine and Conservation Biology program. He received his BS degree in biology from the University of Puget Sound and his PhD degree in environmental science, policy, and management from the University of California, Berkeley. His 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 non-invasive monitoring of carnivore populations and an analysis of genetic connectivity of fishers in Vermont.
