Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology (EECB) is a multidisciplinary Ph.D. program bringing together faculty and students from several departments at the University of Nevada, Reno and DRI. Among our research strengths are population biology, behavioral ecology, plant responses to climate change, conservation of endangered species, and restoration of natural ecosystems.

Students interested in an M.S. in EECB subject areas may pursue a master's degree through either the departments of Biology or Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences.
