The Department of Biology Greenhouse
The Department of Biology Greenhouse is located on the
sixth floor of Samson Talbot Hall. It houses a small,
permanent teaching collection, members of which are kept in different
controlled environments. The greenhouse is divided into a
headhouse and four separate greenhouses: The Desert Room, The Tropical Room, The Temperate Room, and The Experimental Room.
In addition, professors of the departments of Biology and Chemistry & Biochemistry use the greenhouse to grow plants of particular research interest. The greenhouse is used for biology courses that focus at least in part on some aspect of botany. The collection is used extensively in Plant Systematics and Plant Diversity, and the facility is used for short and long term experiments by students in Bio 150 and Ecology and Evolution.
Students interested in a part-time job in the greenhouse should contact Whitney Stocker.
