Giving Online to the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology

Our alumni and friends provide essential support for the Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology teaching programs and research enterprise.

The Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology (EEMB) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, comprised of approximately 35 faculty research groups, is strongly committed to excellence in both education and research.  Primarily engaged in basic research, EEMB researchers use their scientific understanding to address some of the world's most pressing environmental issues including consequences of global warming, invasive and endangered species, impacts of environmental change, biological control of introduced pests and parasites, biodiversity, pollution, harmful algal blooms, and acid rain.  Almost one hundred graduate students and dozens of post-docs conduct research in the Department and over 1,600 undergraduates are jointly instructed by faculty in EEMB and its sister department, Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCDB).  EEMB administers four specialized undergraduate majors (Aquatic Biology, Ecology and Evolution, Physiology, and Zoology) and jointly oversees a general Biological Sciences major with MCDB.  The undergraduate Acquatic/Marine Biology Major has been ranked second in the nation and many undergraduates participate in original field and laboratory research with faculty.  EEMB faculty are also known for their excellence in teaching.  Your support ensures the continued success of EEMB's faculty, undergraduate and graduate students by providing them with the funds they need to solve today's environmental issues.
