About the centre

The Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) combines a broad spectrum of disciplines (such as population biology, statistical and mathematical modelling and genomics) to foster the concept of ecology as a driving force of evolution via selective processes, with a corresponding influence of evolutionary changes on ecology.

CEES was established as a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (CoE) in 2007. It is based at the Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo, and is chaired by Professor Nils Chr. Stenseth.



150 members and more than 25 nationalities.
