Department of Plant Biology,
Ecology, and Evolution (PBEE)
We are a dynamic department devoted to understanding plant biology, from molecules to ecosystems. Our faculty have comprehensive research programs in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and in Cell & Molecular Biology. We provide opportunities for research experiences for our undergraduates through our B.S. Plant Biology and B.S. Biological Science programs. Our Graduate Program offers an M.S. in Plant Biology and a Ph.D. in Plant Science.

Office location: 301 Physical Sciences. Faculty offices and labs are located in Physical Sciences, Life Sciences East basement, or the Henry Bellmon Research Center (Directory). The OSU Herbarium is in the LSE basement.
