Welcome to Ecology at Clemson!

Ecology teaching, research, and outreach are found in a number of departments and programs at Clemson University.  Clemson ecologists have a range of research interests from the theoretical to the applied, from the forests to the oceans, and from the individual to the ecosystem. We offer courses at the undergraduate and graduate level in conservation biology, restoration ecology, plant ecology, behavioral ecology, wildlife ecology, microbial ecology, fire ecology, community ecology, population dynamics, and landscape ecology.
