Ecology, Evolution, & Natural Resources

What exactly is ecology, and why is it important?  If you are at all interested in the life sciences—from animal science to marine biology, environmental science to zoology—but don’t know how to pursue all of these fields at once, you should study ecology. This FIGS will focus on the evolutionary origins and maintenance of biodiversity, the conservation and restoration of native ecosystems, and the management of natural resources within rural and urban environments.  We will also interact with faculty members in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources and explore a variety of exciting careers in this dynamic, growing field.
