About EEB

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology embraces education and research on virtually all aspects of biodiversity, including:

  • origins and history of species ranging from bacteria to humans
  • processes by which this diversity has evolved
  • ecological context in which this evolution takes place

These basic sciences underlie some of the most important applied sciences in the world today, such as:

  • global climate change
  • sustainable agriculture
  • emergence and spread of infectious diseases
  • invasive and exotic species
  • conservation biology
  • natural resource management
  • evolution of pesticide and antibiotic resistance
