Welcome to EEB
EEB, as we are known around campus, is an exciting place to be. Faculty and students join together in classrooms and laboratories, as well as at field sites around the world, to unravel the mysteries of how animals, plants and microbes function; how they interact with others and with the physical environment to form populations, communities, and ecosystems; how they evolve; how they are affected by human activities; and how we can manage our biological heritage to achieve a sustainable future. We invite you to learn more about our research activities by exploring links to the faculty and to the activities in each of our core areas—Ecology & Conservation, Evolution & Genetics, Infectious Disease Dynamics and Behavior & Physiology.
