Biologists study life, from animals to plants to tiny organisms you can’t see without a microscope. Environmental Microbiologist Luke Moe works with microbes living in the soil around the roots of plants and looks at the ways tiny creatures break down chemicals.

Behavioral Ecologist Charles Brown studies cliff swallows. He gathers data on how the colonies they live in, their behavior, and their average size change with their environment.

Evolutionary Biologist Amanda Kyle Gibson studies parasites and their hosts. Her work helps us understand how the differences in the genes of individuals within a species affect their resistance against diseases.
