In 2007, UGA's Odum School of Ecology became the world’s first separate school of its kind not connected to a larger university unit. The school is named for Eugene P. Odum, a scientist who's considered to be the father of ecosystem ecology. At UGA, ecology took root in the 1950s. Faculty have many interests and expertise: how ecosystems are affected by global change, the ecology of infectious diseases, invasive species and disappearance of species, conserving water resources. Faculty have received the Guggenheim Fellowship and the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, among others. The school receives more than $3.7 million in grants each year.<br><br><br>
