From the lab to the field, research in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) Department spans the full range of biological organization from molecules to ecosystems. We recognize three sub-areas of research within EEB: Ecology and Global Change Biology, Evolutionary Mechanisms, and Biodiversity and Macroevolution, with much overlap and collaboration among and between research areas.
