The Liebgold Lab

Eric B. Liebgold Home


I am an Assistant Professor at Salisbury University in the Biological Sciences Department. I teach Evolution, Ecology, and Herpetology. My lab’s research interests involve ecological and evolutionary questions relating to the interplay between animal movements and genetic structure. My students and I are currently studying a variety of projects, many involving the red-backed salamander, Plethodon cinereus, with a focus on sex-biased dispersal, population genetic structure, and color polymorphism. We are also working on projects investigating conservation genetics of tiger salamanders. In collaboration with Dr. Tami Ransom (Environmental Studies at SU) we are investigating movements and nest success in ground-nesting birds.

    Prospective undergraduate and Master’s students are encouraged to read more about our lab and join us!
