Welcome to Botany

The Department of Botany promotes modern plant biology by engaging in forward-looking teaching and research, with strengths in evolution, systematics and ecology. The undergraduate major in Botany provides a rigorous foundation in plant science that can lead to careers in resource management or the private sector, or to advanced studies in graduate school. Graduate students in the Department of Botany are diverse, with interests spanning scales of organization from molecular to global. We share responsibility for the undergraduate major in Biology with the Zoology & Physiology department. Faculty expertise also contributes to interdisciplinary education in Earth System Science, Environment and Natural Resources, Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences, the Program in Ecology, Interdisciplinary Computational Sciences and Remote Sensing.
