Department of Ecology
Ecological knowledge is critical to conservation and management of the state’s resources, including fish, wildlife, plants, and the ecosystems and landscapes that sustain them. Through ongoing research, outstanding teaching, and community outreach, students and faculty in the Department of Ecology seek to learn about these resources and tackle fundamental and applied questions that address ecological and natural resources questions for Montana and a wide variety of ecosystems across the globe.
