The University of Michigan Museum of Zoology serves as the nucleus for the study of animal diversity on campus, focusing on the evolutionary origins of the planet’s animal species, the genetic information they contain and the ecosystems they form. Now part of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, UMMZ houses world-class collections that span almost 200 years of regional and global biodiversity supporting a multi-faceted Departmental research and teaching program.
