Welcome to the Utah State University Ecology Center!

The Ecology Center supports disciplinary and interdisciplinary research and graduate degree programs in the ecological and environmental sciences.  It also provides professional information and advice for decision-makers about actions that affect the environment.  With state support in the University budget, the Center's program is a major mission of the institution.

The Ecology Center brings together faculty and graduate students from several colleges and many departments. Collectively, we form an academic community that supports excellence in ecological and environmental sciences and their applications.  The Center has the continuing goal of increasing opportunities for interdisciplinary conversation, collaboration, research, and training.

This website features recent activities and findings of Ecology Center faculty and students, provides a calendar of seminars and special events of interest to ecologists, and advertises new courses, workshops, and other opportunities.  

Dr. Kathleen Weathers is the April Ecology Center Seminar Series speaker.  Click here to view the flyer.
