We are excited to announce a special iFAST series - iFAST Theoretical Ecology - to celebrate Dr. Simon Levin's 80th Anniversary and honor his outstanding contributions to theoretical ecology. This special symposium will be spread among three days, July 26-28 2021, 2.5 hours each day, 10am-12:30pm EST.
Christina Badaracco ’12 has fond memories of her years at Princeton, but her favorite college experience may have taken place 7,000 miles away from Nassau Hall. As a student in the ecology and evolutionary biology department, she spent a semester during her junior year at the Mpala Research Center, a “living laboratory” for experimental...
For his senior thesis, Joe Kawalec of the Class of 2021, who graduated Princeton with a bachelor’s degree in ecology and evolutionary biology with a certificate in environmental studies, studied the natural camouflage of downy woodpeckers to understand how it helps the small bird survive in its forest habitat.
Undergraduate senior Kuziel and Professor Pringle settled on a thesis that turned the challenges of COVID-19 into an advantage: since he couldn’t gather his own data at one national park, he would use previously gathered samples from six animal species — baboons, warthogs, kudu, hartebeest, impala and zebra — at six national parks — Gorongosa...
Before wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the mid-1990s, they were vaccinated for common diseases and treated for any parasite infections they already carried. As a result, the first few generations of wolves were relatively disease-free, but over the years, various diseases – including mange – have found...
For Professor Rob Pringle’s 56 students, joining Zoom to find their professor lecturing from his basement would be a lot more surprising than seeing him discuss biodiversity while knee-deep in a lake. Students in EEB face the challenge of engaging in outdoor exploration during this online semester.
These individuals have been elevated to this rank because of their efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.
In a paper published recently in Science, an international team of researchers led by Princeton graduate student Ciro Cabal sheds light on the underground life of plants.
New research suggests that the impact of natural and vaccine-induced immunity will be key factors in shaping the future trajectory of the global coronavirus pandemic, known as COVID-19.
Princeton’s vital research across the spectrum of environmental issues is today and will continue to be pivotal to solving some of humanity’s toughest problems. Our impact is built on a long, deep, broad legacy of personal commitment, intellectual leadership, perseverance and innovation.
