The department’s programs deal with a broad diversity of organisms, including bacteria, vascular and nonvascular plants, vertebrate and invertebrate animals, fungi, and protists. Concentrated fields of study include behavior, ecology, genetics, morphology and systematics. Research programs have relevance for global change, conservation biology and revealing fundamental mechanisms underlying the structural and functional adaptations of organisms.
