Genetics, Evolution and Population Biology

Evolutionary biologists study the history of life on Earth, as well as the mechanisms producing variation in populations and adaptations in organisms. Systematics includes study of phylogenetic history, species formation, species boundaries, classification, and biogeography. Researchers in Zoology tackle these problems from multiple perspectives, but emphasize molecular approaches to population genetics (including molecular ecology and conservation genetics) and phylogenetics.
