Welcome to EECB

The EECB graduate specialization at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa is an interdisciplinary program promoting integration among the traditionally separate disciplines that come together synergistically under the umbrella of Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology. Participation in the program is available to students enrolled in the M.S. and Ph.D. programs of the affiliated Mānoa departments. The program draws on the resources of approximately 50 faculty with research skills in many specialized areas, from various departments in the College of Natural Sciences, the College of Social Sciences, the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, the School of Medicine, and the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, as well as from the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo and affiliate faculty from other agencies.
