Patricia G. Parker is a North American evolutionary biologist who uses molecular techniques to assess social structures, particularly in avian populations. Her interests have shaped her research in disease transmission and population size, particularly in regard to bird conservation. She received her B.S. in Zoology in 1975 and her Ph.D. in Behavioral Ecology in 1984, both from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From 1991 to 2000, Parker was an Assistant and Associate Professor in the Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at Ohio State University. Since 2000, she is a Des Lee Professor at University of Missouri-St. Louis.[1]

Parker’s current research focuses on disease transmission in birds, their susceptibility and how they achieve protection from such diseases. Her efforts are in the context of conservation of birds in the Galapagos Islands. Parker's lab is now collaborating with the St. Louis Zoo's Wildcare Institute to further this research.
