The Department of Integrative Biology offers a program of instruction that focuses on the integration of structure and function in the evolution of diverse biological systems. It investigates integration at all levels of organization from molecules to the biosphere, and in all taxa of organisms from viruses to higher plants and animals.
The department uses many traditional fields and levels of complexity in forging new research directions, asking new questions, and answering traditional questions in new ways. The various fields within the department cooperate across disciplinary boundaries, sharing information and knowledge. Experience in laboratory and/or field, technological and independent study will bring about an understanding of scientific logic based on both experimental and historical patterns and processes.
The faculty has special strengths in the disciplines of morphology, organismal physiology, animal behavior, biomechanics, ecology, systematic biology, paleobiology, population genetics, and evolution.
