Ecologists and evolutionary biologists seek to understand the origin and complex interactions of the earth's biodiversity and ecosystems. Faculty and graduate students within the EEB Department include ecologists, evolutionary biologists, organismal biologists and systematists who analyze such topics as behavior, biogeochemistry, population dynamics, community structure, environmental physiology, disease ecology, biogeography, life history evolution, selection, speciation, species interactions, and phylogenetics. Their techniques include comparative and experimental approaches in ecology, ethology, genetics, molecular biology, morphology, paleontology, physiology, biochemistry and cytology. Many members of this group are specialists on particular groups of organisms.
