Welcome to the School of Biology and Ecology
A new interdisciplinary Center for One Health & the Environment at the University of Maine builds on current strengths, and is focused on climate change and emerging issues in animal, plant, and human health. Find out more here.
The School of Biology and Ecology was formed in 2007 as a central home for research and teaching programs in organismal biology and ecology at the University of Maine. Our programs span biology in both scale (cellular to global) and discipline (developmental biology to ecology and biogeochemistry).
The School of Biology and Ecology serves the following goals:
Goal 1: Enhance Integrative Studies in Biology;
Goal 2: Serve a Central Mission of Biology: the Study of Organisms;
Goal 3: Serve as a Center of Excellence in Ecology.
