Organismic & evolutionary biology#

Members of the Organismic and Evolutionary Biology Section come from a range of disciplines within the Life Sciences whose aim is to describe the patterns of biological diversity, to discover the processes which produce and maintain this diversity, and to understand the role of biological diversity in the resilience of ecosystems and, more generally, complex biological systems. Members have particular expertise in the study of structure, function, ecology and evolution at the level of organisms, populations, multi-species assemblages, and ecosystems, and they explore the full complexity of mechanisms and processes involved using a variety of concepts and techniques from all fields in biology, and also from computing and mathematics. The section therefore includes members from specialty disciplines such as paleobiology, population and community ecology, ecophysiology, behavioural ecology, evolutionary genetics, evolutionary developmental biology, evolutionary ecology, mathemat ical and theoretical biology, systematics, and phylogenetics. Some members use ecological and evolutionary approaches to address more applied questions (e.g. conservation biology, evolutionary medicine).
