The University of Toronto is a leading academic institution in Canada with over 60 faculty members specializing in ecology and evolution. Strong links exist between the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and the Royal Ontario Museum, the Centre for Global Change, the Centre for Environment, and the Faculty of Forestry. The University owns a nearby field station dedicated to ecological research (the Koffler Scientific Reserve, ksr.utoronto.ca). The department also has a partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources that helps provide access to infrastructure, including lab facilities in Algonquin Provincial Park (www.harkness.ca), funding, and long-term data sets. Genomic analyses are supported by the Centre for the Analysis of Genome Evolution and Function (www.cagef.utoronto.ca).
