Research in Iowa State’s Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology (EEOB) has been garnering a lot of attention — and support — from the National Science Foundation (NSF) this past year. In 2016, eight faculty received grants from the NSF to support their exciting research in evolutionary biology.

The funding, totaling more than $2.9 million, allows faculty to get down to the business of understanding how sex chromosomes evolve, how fig plants and fig wasps can diversify through pollination, how new mathematical models can better represent evolutionary patterns, and more.
