Department of Botany

College of Arts & Sciences

Welcome to the Department of Botany at the University of Wyoming.  We conduct fundamental scholarship on plants and other organisms, within populations, communities, and ecosystems. Our faculty members are recognized nationally and internationally and are actively engaged in their scientific communities. Our research includes EcologyEvolution, Environmental Change, Ecohydrology, Remote Sensing, Systematics & Floristics, 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.

The Botany Department also houses the Rocky Mountain Herbarium and the Williams Conservatory, both located in the Aven Nelson Building.

We offer the following degree programs:

  • B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Botany
  • B.S. in Biology

We also participate in interdisciplinary degree programs including the Program in Ecology, Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences, the Hydrology Program, Earth System Science, and offer courses in the Life Sciences Program.

You can read our complete vision and mission statement here.
