Welcome to the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UCLA, 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.
Our faculty members are engaged in exciting, high-quality research that generates a dynamic learning
environment for undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students.
For undergraduates, we offer a choice
of a broad-based major in biology and two specialized majors within ecology and evolutionary biology. We
provide extensive individual research opportunities with professors and exciting field courses taught
around the world. Our graduate program has strengths in theoretical ecology, molecular ecology,
behavioral ecology, evolutionary genetics, evolutionary conservation, paleobiology, marine biology, and
tropical biology. Please explore our website and learn more about our educational programs and research
Thanks for your interest,
Daniel T. Blumstein
Professor and Department Chair
