A recent study from UNL researchers suggests that the movement of cold-blooded animals becomes less responsive to warming after crossing temperature thresholds that vary among species.
At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's School of Biological Sciences, we embrace a broad understanding of the life sciences – from cellular and molecular processes to whole organisms and ecosystems.
Our 44 full-time faculty members work collaboratively, incorporating multiple disciplines and organizational levels.
Our graduate students specialize within the broad world of biology by creating their own individualized program of study. Our undergraduates get a strong background in fundamentals of life sciences and allow them to specialize to meet their career goals.
Our distinguished faculty work hand-in-hand with our students. We get our students out of the textbook and into real-world education experiences. They use human cadavers as learning tools and apply hands-on field research to fascinating problems at Cedar Point Biological Station.
Our classrooms at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln – as well as the field station, research centers and labs – offer our students and faculty access to cutting edge space and technology. We offer competitive research and teaching assistantships that prepare students for successful careers in a variety of professional sectors.
