Department of Biological Sciences

About Us     Academics     Faculty     Research

 

Our focus is on organismal biology in the basic and applied sciences, encompassing physiology, behavior, ecology, and evolutionary biology. Faculty in our department study a wide range of organisms from freshwater, marine, and terrestrial ecosystems. Our location near the Atlantic coastline and the White Mountains provides numerous opportunities for field-based research. The Jackson Estuarine Laboratory, located nearby on Great Bay, and Shoals Marine Laboratory, located on the Isles of Shoals, are valuable resources for students in the Marine and Freshwater Biology program. Collaboration with Cooperative Extension and the Agricultural Experiment Station allows for terrestrial ecological research within farm and forest systems.
