History

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) was established on July 1, 2006 following a reorganization of the Departments of Botany and Zoology. For decades these departments have run very successful graduate programs that attract the best students from around the world. The tradition of graduate education in the fields of Botany and Zoology and their many subdisciplines is a long and successful one at the University. Bringing together professors and students with common interests in ecology and evolutionary biology has produced a stronger, more cohesive and dynamic community of scholars.

The pressing challenges facing society today—combating global climate change, saving rare and endangered species, managing exploited resources, slowing the spread of infectious disease, comprehending the variation present in the human genome—have their root in ecological and evolutionary forces. Our ability as scientists, educators, and citizens to provide the necessary context, expertise, and guidance on these issues is the central challenge facing our disciplines. EEB at University of Toronto, is and will remain a world leader in discovery, innovation and teaching in this science.
