Welcome to EEB

Michigan State University's Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior (EEB) Program is a research and training hub for those seeking to understand and predict life in a changing world.

EEB members come from 12 departments in five colleges, uniting multiple disciplines. The program aims to support innovative research and mentor the next generation of life scientists while building networks and enriching collaborations.

EEB is our intellectual home

Our work spans a breathtaking swath of life, across the globe from molecules to the biosphere. We study and teach biodiversity's origins and maintenance. We're inspired by the diverse community we make.

Understanding change -- seconds to millennia -- is our common quest.
