Organismal Biology and Evolution
In studying biological processes from the perspective of entire organisms, populations, and ecosystems, scientists seek to reveal how complex traits and behaviors develop, and how diseases manifest across all levels of organization. Their work covers the biology of vertebrate and invertebrate organisms and plants, the evolution of species, and other topics.
