Ecology & Evolutionary Biology

 EEB was the first department of its kind in the world and is increasingly being used as a model for the organization of biology in the world’s leading universities. Our goal is to lead undergraduates, graduate students, our faculty, and the biological community worldwide on a mission of discovery of the nature and principles underlying ecological and evolutionary systems. Our unifying theme is biodiversity and biodiversification (the processes which create and maintain biodiversity).
