Ecology & Evolutionary Biology

The EEB Plant Growth Facilities, an operating unit of the EEB Biodiversity Research Collections, support the educational and research goals of the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Connecticut. It serves these needs by:

  • providing EEB faculty & affiliated researchers with professionally managed growing space to conduct world-class research,
  • maintaining a diverse living reference collection to facilitate teaching in basic botany, plant morphology, systematics and related disciplines,
  • growing a wide array of plant materials each semester for delivery to introductory & advanced level biology teaching laboratories,
  • managing growing areas for graduate and advanced undergraduate student experiments,
  • maintaining conservatory areas to augment the teaching of systematic and ecological concepts and demonstrating economically important plants to the UConn community as well as area elementary/secondary/post-secondary and alternative school groups. Conservatory areas are the primary location for public tours and offer publicly accessible display space for notable plants in the reference collection,
  • providing facilities, materials & expertise for summer science camps, various special interest seminars and related public outreach programs,
  • supporting the educational and research goals of institutions world-wide by contributing to the free exchange of plant material for research and educational purposes.
The EEB Plant Growth Facilities seek to make these valuable resources available to provide the residents of Connecticut and beyond the opportunity to learn more about the world in which we live.
