PHR242/ECL242 Ecological Genetics Discussion: How to plan and start a project Feb 22, 2010 Situations for Discussion of “Starting Ecological Genetics Project” Situation 1: Domestic Hogs were first released in California in 1769 for free ranging. This resulted in a feral hog population. Later in 1925 the European Wild Boar was introduced to California for hunting purposes. In the last 75 years these two pig populations have interbred. As the population of feral pigs increased in California they have become more destructive to crop and range land and are increasingly causing more problems in more urban areas. These issues have caused the California Department of Fish and Game to more closely mange the species and have asked you to provide a statewide genetics analysis to help them understand population structure, gene flow, and relative influences of wild boar, domestic pig, and feral pig. Assume you are a PhD student and you have the next 3 years to conduct the study. You are all done with class work and passed your qualifying exam with flying colors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
