Environmental Science Departmental Faculty
Scientists within FAU’s Department of Biological Sciences that focus on environmental science use primarily aquatic systems such as the Everglades and coral reefs to study ecological systems and sustain their biodiversity. Faculty members are actively conducting research on a wide range of topics including population ecology, predator-prey interactions, ecosystem energetics, food web dynamics, ecological modeling and physical-biological coupling. Much of the research is done through partnerships with agencies and organizations in South Florida, with emphasis on research in the Everglades. These partnerships have allowed FAU’s faculty to play a strong role in the restoration of the Everglades ecosystem and have led to the study and conservation of ecosystems worldwide.

FAU’s Department of Biological Sciences faculty members view integration of disciplines as a defining characteristic to understanding scientific principles. The department offers a Ph.D. Program in Integrative Biology and Masters degrees (both include the option to concentrate in environmental sciences) and Bachelors degrees.
