Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior

The study of ecology, evolution, and behavior in the School of Biological Sciences includes the following areas:

  • Aquatic chemical ecology
  • Aquatic toxicology
  • Evolutionary and population ecology
  • Molecular and genome evolution
  • Sensory ecology
  • Ecological genomics
  • Evolution of development, behavior, and sociality
  • Biological oceanography
  • Microbial ecology and environmental microbiology, with special emphasis on plasmid ecology, bacterial transformation and respiration of metals, and chemosensory regulation

Opportunities for research exist on campus, at our Skidaway Oceanographic Facilities on the Georgia coast, and on research cruises. Interdisciplinary research in microbiology, involving faculty members from other departments, occurs through the Center for Environmental Microbiology.
