Welcome to Ecology & Evolutionary Biology
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at a Glance
Welcome to the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University of Kansas (KU)!
To capture the breadth and depth of research and graduate education opportunities in EEB at KU, we have organized the interests and activities of our faculty into three major themes:
- Ecology and Global Change Biology
- Evolutionary Mechanisms
- Biodiversity and Macroevolution
Populating these three theme areas are 40 tenured/tenure track faculty members with diverse interests and expertise. Our common bond is a focus on the biology of organisms: their history, how they develop, where they live, how they adapt, how they change over time, and how they interact. Along with our nearly 70 graduate students, we travel widely, collecting and visiting study sites literally around the globe. We study ancient fossils and we predict future climatic events, we apply state-of-the-art analyses to address critical questions, and we collaborate and educate.
