Ecology with No Apology is an extraordinary group of tireless and talented individuals* that consists of the faculty, researchers, students, and other associates who are dedicated to exploring entirely new and creative ways of looking at nature. Our long term goal is to achieve environmental sustainability on Earth and secure the rich and vibrant world that underpins human prosperity.
We believe that changes in biodiversity, either through local extinction, biological invasions, or the displacement or replacement of native species by domestic species, constitute the most fundamental, important and complex issues in contemporary ecology, evolution, and environmental biology.
Central to our mission is dedication to a pluralistic approach in which rigorous science, advanced quantitative methods, and fun** are synthesized.
