Research Division for Ecology & Biodiversity

 
 
Ocean with Sea Turtle

 

The Research Division for Ecology & Biodiversity (DEB) oversees a range of projects on fundamental research in ecology and evolution as well as applied work on environmental change.

(1) Marine Science, (2) Evolutionary & Environmental Biology, and (3) Global Change & Conservation, including climate change and other anthropogenic change.

 

For example, DEB labs have explored:
 
  1. The impacts of climate change on terrestrial plants and insects driven by global warming;
  2. How warming and ocean acidification may affect marine ecosystems and production systems; and
  3. The paleoecology of biodiversity associated with historical climate change.
 

Our research integrates the marine, freshwater and terrestrial realms, using a diversity of approaches from molecular and genomics techniques to large-scale field-based experiments, satellite remote sensing techniques,  and global modeling. The range of taxa studied is diverse, from microbes to marine invertebrates, terrestrial and freshwater insects, as well as globally-threatened species of fishes, amphibians, reptiles and mammals.
