To capture the breadth and depth of research and graduate education opportunities in EEB at KU, we have organized the interests and activities of our faculty.

Mechanistic insight in ecology and the environment has traditionally lagged other biological disciplines, owing to the vast complexity of ecosystems and the large spatial and temporal scales across which ecological dynamics play out.

However, this is changing rapidly: enhanced computational power and emerging technologies are increasingly enabling fresh tests of classic models. Indigenous ways of understanding and interacting with the natural world are characterized as Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), which derives from emphasizing relationships and connections among species.

This book examines TEK and its strengths in relation to Western ecological knowledge and evolutionary philosophy. Pierotti takes a look at the scientific basis of this approach, focusing.

Author(s): Amjad Almusaed. What is evolutionary ecology. Evolutionary ecology is a general term that may mean very different things to different people. The main focus of evolutionary-ecology studies is at the level of population biology (Pianka ), with an emphasis on a timescale at the boundary between ecological (i.e., short-term) and evolutionary (i.e., long-term) by:   Berta and Sumich have succeeded yet again in creating superior marine reading.
