The Graduate Program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) brings together researchers and students interested in biodiversity research. This includes the hierarchy of biological organization, from genes to species to ecosystems. Investigations are wide ranging and encompass all manner of biological pattern and process. Examples include studies of organismal structure and function, natural and sexual selection, adaptation, behavior, evolutionary genetics, population biology, community dynamics, species formation, phylogenetics, conservation biology, paleontology, and the history of life on earth.
The EEB graduate program combines faculty from the Department of Biological Sciences and Biomedical Sciences. This program is part of the Ohio Center for Ecology & Evolutionary Studies (OCEES), which is an integrative collection of ecology and evolutionary biology faculty and students assembled from diverse departments and colleges across campus.
