The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology is one of three departments in the biological sciences at the University of Connecticut. There are currently 30 (including 4 at regional campuses) faculty members plus four emeritus faculty members and more than six adjunct professors in the department representing most areas of organismal biology, ecology, evolution and systematics. About 50 graduate students are currently studying for the M.S. or Ph.D. degrees. Together with biologists in the sister departments and within the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources, there are well over 100 faculty working in the field of biological sciences (excluding health-related fields). This constitutes one of the largest concentrations of organismic biologists in the Northeast.
