Who are we?

The Ecology Graduate Group (EGG) is a focal research group of the Department of Zoology at North Carolina State University. Our faculty collaborate with many other ecologists in departments across campus. Our faculty work on taxa ranging from Begonias to Bears and study scales from genes to continents. Our strengths are broadly in the Ecology of Aquatic Systems, the Ecology of Dispersal, Social Insect Ecology, Quantitative Ecology, and Conservation Biology.  Together with associated faculty in other departments, we represent one of the largest Ecology groups in the nation and are known for our innovative approaches, for our applications of ecology to problems of societal concern, and for our collegialitly.
