The Wildlife Evolution and Behavior program, or web, at Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute is dedicated to basic and applied research on marine mammals, including in remote locations like the Arctic. Our research focuses on behavioral, ecological and evolutionary aspects of species vulnerability and resilience, especially in times of change. Our work is a collaborative effort with many partners, including Native Peoples across the north.

Wildlife Evolution and Behavior is the group formerly known as Population Biology and Behavioral Ecology.

web reflects the evolution of our research and more accurately encompasses current study interests.

Also, if we're being honest, PBBE was a tough acronym.
