The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) is one of five affiliated departments in Biology and Medicine at Brown. The other four are: Molecular and Cell Biology and Biochemistry (MCB), Molecular Microbiology and Immunology (MMI), Molecular Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biotechnology (MPPB), and Neuroscience (NS). All operate collaboratively within a Program in Biology. Rather than offering specialty degrees in each department, the Program in Biology offers A. B. and Sc. B. degrees in Biology. Ecology and Evolutionary Biology spans the gamut of biological organization from molecules and cells to communities and ecosystems. Thus we provide a broad and holistic perspective of the biological sciences. Our faculty and students study molecular evolution, plant and animal populations, community and ecosystem ecology, animal behavior, functional morphology, paleoecology, physiology, phylogenetics, and genetics. However, our interests all converge around a common thread: the evolutionary paradigm. One of the preeminent scientists of the twentieth century, Theodosius Dobzhansky, noted that, "Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution." We firmly believe that it is imperative for students with interests in ecology and evolutionary biology to obtain a broad view of biology, in order to place our own field in an appropriate context.
