The EEB ProgramThe Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) interdepartmental graduate major was created following a growing realization in the 1980s that, although the fields of ecology and evolutionary biology were in general well-represented at ISU, there was little recognition of this group either within or outside the university due to the dispersion of faculty among many departments. In combination with public recognition of increasing environmental and ecological problems both within Iowa and world-wide, there was a pressing need for greater visibility and more effective interaction among EEB faculty at ISU. Thus, several faculty, from various departments, undertook the organization of the EEB major, which was approved by the Iowa Board of Regents in February 1989. The primary objectives of the EEB program are to
Students majoring in EEB choose a major professor from among the EEB graduate faculty. For administrative purposes, the student's "home" department is determined by the departmental affiliation of her/his major professor.
The following departments participate in the EEB major and serve as the administrative "home" departments for EEB students.
