The Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, and Behavior Subprogram (EEB) integrates the theoretical framework and tools of ecology, behavior, evolution and systematics to understand the relationships of organisms, populations and communities to their historic and contemporary environments. The faculty, drawn from eight campuses of the City University of New York and the American Museum of Natural History, have defined much of the state-of-the-art progress in these general disciplines. The course of study exposes the students to each of the disciplines and stresses both the unique and common intellectual approaches used in each. The faculty are especially known for making use of molecular and computational approaches to solving evolutionary questions. The EEB subprogram strives not only to integrate its included disciplines but to make certain the students are exposed to a variety of its practitioners.
