Faculty Research Areas

Biodiversity and Conservation
The great breadth of biodiversity reflects the interrelatedness of entities from genes through species and ecosystems. Our faculty study systematic, evolutionary, and conservation biology in both the field and the lab to better understand Earth's biodiversity and help conserve it.

Botany

Thanks to our location in St. Louis, we have many productive research ties to the Missouri Botanical Garden. Our professors here study plant evolutionary biology and population genetics, with a special emphasis on the evolution of pollination systems.

Ecology
Ecology, the study of the interrelationships between organisms and their environment, is an integral aspect of our department. Four of our professors study this discipline in topics as varied as reproductive ecology, community ecology, and landscape ecology.

Evolutionary Biology

SLU Biology faculty are working to understand various aspects of evolution, including the evolutionary history of organisms,genomes, and genes, how organisms evolve in response to global change, and evolutionary processes that are critical for understanding agriculture and disease.
