Clemson Ecology Faculty

Clemson Ecology Faculty have research interests in plant ecology, marine ecology, vertebrate ecology, microbial ecology, restoration ecology, and conservation biology. We study ecology from the level of the individual through that of the ecosystem.

Faculty involved in Ecology at Clemson are associated with various academic and research units.

Faculty interested in participating in the Clemson Ecology Faculty Group should contact Saara DeWalt (saarad@clemson.edu).
