Ecology and Evolution

Research in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology group applies experimental, computational, mathematical and observational approaches to understand life on a changing planet. A common goal of many of our research programs is to better understand how species and their traits change in response to environmental change. Research foci range from molecules to ecosystems and cover a wide range of extinct and extant taxa.
