Doctor of Philosophy in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

The Doctorate in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, administered by the Texas A&M intercollegiate faculty of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, involves intense laboratory or field-conducted research, coupled with rigorous scholarly contemplation of ecological, evolutionary, and genetic/genomic principles. Students that complete the course of study will have mastered experimental method and design to produce and interpret data for addressing a broad range of questions involving living systems, communities, and evolutionary processes. These methodologies include a range of statistical, biomolecular, genetic/genomic, theoretical and experimental ecological techniques used for dissecting, describing, cataloging and organizing data from diverse ecological and evolutionary systems. The students will also have mastered writing and oral skills to effectively communicate new discoveries to fellow scientists and to the general public.

Research training and course work are conducted at Texas A&M University.
