Welcome to Botany

Welcome to the UW Department of Botany.  The Botany Department is unique at UW because of our focus on fundamental research and teaching on plants, as well as our study of populations, communities, and ecosystems. Our faculty are recognized nationally and internationally and are actively engaged in their scientific communities.  Research topics include ecology, evolution, systematics, floristics, ecohydrology, and symbiosis. These are investigated using genomics, computational science, stable isotopes, microscopy, spatial data analysis, remote sensing, biogeochemical and physiological approaches, and field and laboratory experiments. Our students receive a high quality education through engagement in these topics and tools and through faculty involvement in science education research. We offer a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Botany, the BS in Biology and faculty participate in interdisciplinary degree programs including the Program in Ecology, Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences, the Hydrology Program, Earth System Science, and the Life Sciences Program.

You can read our complete vision and mission statement here.
