Ecology and Evolution

Faculty in the Ecology and Evolution Division have a diverse set of research interests ranging from bioinformatics and molecular evolution to behavioral and community ecology.


Our faculty have expertise in community ecology, biodiversity, biological invasions, and ecological genetics. Multiple faculty study plant ecology, including belowground communities, as well as plant-microbe and plant-herbivore interactions. Our local field sites are in dunes, forests, coastal wetlands, grasslands, and deserts.


We study evolution from the level of genes to complex phenotypes. Areas of expertise include evolutionary genomics, population genetics, evolution of development, sexual selection, and the evolution of social behavior. Our research spans from theoretical to empirical, working with insects, protists, and other organisms.
