Evolutionary biology uses a broad historical and analytical approach to understand the origins, adaptations, and distributions of plants and animals.  Students in the Department of Anatomy’s Evolutionary Biology Track will be trained in human anatomy and prepared for careers in research and teaching in such fields as comparative anatomy, biomechanics, biogeography, ecology, systematics, and vertebrate paleontology.  Faculty in the Department of Anatomy and affiliated institutions, like the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, have active research programs in many areas of evolutionary biology and can provide diverse technical expertise and research opportunities.  Case and affiliated institutions have a variety of resources available including research libraries, x-ray and CT facilities, dissection labs, cellular and molecular biology labs, extensive recent and fossil vertebrate and invertebrate collections, molding and casting facilities, and fossil preparation labs, allowing students to pursue a wide range of research in evolutionary biology.
