Welcome

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology is committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service. We pursue our scientific and educational missions in integrative biology by discovering new knowledge and by providing a rich learning and mentoring environment for undergraduate and graduate students. We provide our students with analytical and technological skills for a wide range of disciplines, from biology, environmental science, and conservation to law, medicine, and public health. We study organisms, populations, communities, and ecosystems as we focus our efforts on ecology, evolution, conservation, and global change. We emphasize academic inquiry in tropical and river/coastal biology. Undergraduate and graduate students collaborate in the creation and dissemination of knowledge about organisms and their environments.

Louisiana Wetlands Restoration Research

Louisiana Wetlands Restoration Research

The Van Bael and Blum labs are collaborating to look at the fungus and bacteria in marsh grass hoping to see what makes this important wetland-protecting plant so hearty.

Louisiana as a Classroom

Departmental Vision

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology will be recognized as a center for solution-based science in ecology and evolutionary biology. The foci will be tropical and river-coast ecosystems. We will conduct translational research: basic scientific advance is not only an end in itself but also a means to providing solutions to global environmental challenges. The Department will provide students with the theory and skills needed to question, discover, understand and restore.
