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 Ecology, Evolution, Environmental Change, Ecohydrology, Systematics & Floristics, and Symbiosis.
These are investigated using genomics, computational science, stable isotopes, microscopy,
spatial data analysis, 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:
We also participate in interdisciplinary degree programs including the Program in Ecology, Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences, the Hydrology Program, and offer courses in the Life Sciences Program.
