Ecology and Environmental Biology
Ecologists in the field

Ecology is the study of interactions between organisms and their environment, both in natural settings and human influenced habitats. We offer a theme, within the Biological Sciences programs (Majors, Honours, and Co-op) that allow our students to develop skills that are applicable in the field, lab, and office for both academic and commercial ecological pursuits.
