Facilities

Much of our research happens on-site in the field. We combine these field studies with experiments in more controlled environments, such as the laboratory and the greenhouse. This approach focuses our research on pertinent restoration problems, while allowing us to answer more pointed questions about the mechanisms behind ecological restoration. Being located in an Environmental Horticulture department provides us with access to state of the art growing facilities and the expertise to accommodate our experimental needs.
