the Shaffer Lab at UCLA
applying evolutionary, ecological & conservation theory to real world organisms
UCLA La Kretz Center for California Conservation Science Created through a gift from UCLA alumnus and philanthropist Morton La Kretz, the Center aims to preserve California's biodiversity and ecosystems through research, education and public outreach in a groundbreaking partnership with state and federal agencies.
UCLA Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UCLA is home of the Biology Major. Our mission is to provide new knowledge of the ecological and evolutionary processes that produce and sustain life on Earth and to educate the next generation of scholars, professionals, and citizens for the biological, environmental and biotechnological challenges of the future.
UCLA EEB Graduate Studies Graduate studies in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology emphasize education and research toward a PhD. All doctoral students pursue a common set of requirements, while focusing their research in one of our specializations. We encourage prospective students to contact faculty with complementary research interests before applying to our program.
Shaffer Lab Photo Vouchers For some of our studies, we work with living specimens. Whenever possible, we take photographic images of those specimens, assign the photo the same HBS number as the tissue sample, and post it on our website along with the species identification. If you ever see a specimen that you believe is misidentified, please let Brad know.
