The Graduate Program in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology provides interdepartmental training for MS and PhD students in ecology, organismal and evolutionary biology. Graduate students, post-docs, and faculty study biological processes ranging from the molecular to the ecosystem level, often bridging the gap between basic and applied research. Our faculty and students conduct research in four broad areas: Animal Behavior: Behavioral ecology, communication, learning Ecology: Community ecology, population ecology, landscape ecology, conservation biology Evolutionary Biology: Evolution, phylogenetics, population genetics, molecular evolution Organismal Biology: Physiology, morphology, paleontology OEB includes more than 75 faculty from departments within the College of Natural Sciences, the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and other on- and off-campus institutes and organizations. Additional members are drawn from the other campuses in the Five College Community (Amherst, Hampshire, Mt. Holyoke, and Smith Colleges).
