About EEB

The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) Interdisciplinary Research Program integrates independent research programs related to the disciplines of ecology and evolutionary biology to heighten awareness of this important area of biological research within Texas A&M University. Members of EEB at Texas A&M include faculty, students, and postdoctoral researchers from multiple departments in several colleges within the university. We aim to foster research and teaching collaborations and enhance interdisciplinary training in ecology and evolutionary biology.
