Faculty in Zoology & Wildlife Conservation emphasize comparative, functional and developmental approaches to their research. Many of our faculty and students take a taxon-oriented, physiological, or ecological approach to the study of life. Many Cornell faculty in the field have established collaborations with research scientists at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI), and we offer a Joint Graduate Training Program with the SCBI.
Since the Field of Zoology & Wildlife Conservation is a member of the Biological & Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program (BBS), applicants should follow the BBS application guidelines.
Funding: The Biological & Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program only admits students who will be funded for the duration of their program (contingent upon satisfactory performance). An application to the BBS is considered an application for funding.
Concentrations: Faculty in ZWC may represent the following concentration(s) on a Special Committee: animal cytology; comparative and functional anatomy; developmental biology; ecology; histology; wildlife conservation.
