Biodiversity Links #2 - University Departments,
and Museums studying Ecology and Ecological Change
This list includes Departments, Research groups and Museums within
the that are directly studying ecology and ecological change. It does
not include those providing support for such efforts (eg Biostatistics
departments), those solely studying the consequences of environmental
change on humans (eg Public Health departments) or those solely studying
physical environmental change (eg Atmospheric Physics Groups).
The list also does not include departments that are solely concerned
with teaching general biology (many 2-year and smaller colleges).
Botanic gardens are included in the field
station list although they may count administratively as museums.
Academic departments and units have formal graduate programs, research
groups and programs do not, although they may have grauate students
working with them.
