Historical Sketch

The Biology Department at Rice University formed in 1912 with Julian Huxley named the first Professor of Biology. His name is commemorated by the department's Huxley Fellows Program, a fellowship for recent Ph.D. recipients. In 1989 the Biology Department became The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) Department; this transition is well documented in the Annual Reports leading up to and immediately following the formation of the EEB Department, from 1985 to 1992. Today the department focuses on plant/insect interactions, molecular evolution, genomics, and the biology of plants, insects, and microbes. Recent research has examined environmental issues, such as ecosystem degradation and global warming, and their actual and potential effects on the environment. The department offers M.S., M.A., and Ph.D. Degrees to graduate students and B.A. and B.S. degrees to undergraduates. The graduate programs seek to build strong relationships between faculty and students, while the undergraduate degrees look to inspire a sense of environmentalism within its students. The EEB Department is housed in the Anderson Biology Lab with a recently renovated greenhouse next to the lab building.
