In Marine Environmental Biology, the Ph.D. program studies marine organisms, their interactions in complex marine ecosystems, and the emergent properties of the communities that result from these interactions. By design and necessity, this work includes studies at all levels of biological organization, as well as investigations of the intersection between the activities of organisms and the abiotic world.
The interdisciplinary and integrative nature of our research presents opportunities to create unique linkages across scales, educating our students in the connections between molecular biology, physiological ecology, neurobiology, and the larger-scale functions of organisms and ecosystems.
