Congratulations to PEEC student Bailey Morrison for receiving the 2015 NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship. Her winning proposal was entitled, “The Velocity of Tree Cover in California". Bailey was one of the 64 students out of 400 applicants to win this highly competitive fellowship!

The Program in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology is an interdisciplinary, campuswide program designed to provide individualized training for graduate students. This program prepares individuals for research and teaching careers in ecology and evolutionary biology and produces scientists who are both technically competent and broadly educated in ecology and evolutionary biology.

 

A Ph.D. student declares three areas of emphasis:

  • A general area of ecology or evolution
  • A complementary general area (e.g., behavior, systematics, physiology, genetics)
  • A specific area related to the dissertation

See program by-laws, handbook, and FAQs.
