The faculty offers a comprehensive program of study and research and provides the opportunity to specialize in most fields of plant biology. Research in Plant Biology can range from practical problems as disease prevention in turf grass to understanding DNA packaging in the nucleus. Greenhouse and research facilities and equipment are extensive. Fieldwork may be performed in any of several experiment stations, farms, or research stations, as well as in a nearby primeval forest ecosystem, old field and ancient habitats. A seminar series of invited scientists provides rich opportunities for students during graduate study.
