OEB is a diverse and vibrant department. We pride ourselves in the scholarly pursuit of a broad range of research and teaching interests. These span field and laboratory studies that are key to understanding the evolution of organisms, how biodiversity is generated and maintained, how organisms work, and how organisms interact with their environment. Due to such a broad range of research, our faculty and students conduct field projects at sites throughout the world, including China, Madagascar, Trinidad, Australia, Costa Rica, Panama, France, Africa and America.
