We have received a substantial grant from the National Science Foundation's Field Stations and Marine Laboratories (FSML) program to upgrade and modernize Torrey Greenhousethe greenhouses at the Harvard Forest and to renovate the plant physiology laboratory.

The upgrades will include new benches, electrical, mechanical, and watering systems, and automated climate control for the greenhouses; shade and lath houses for summer experimental work; and a fully-outfitted multi-user laboratory for conducting detailed studies of plant physiology situated right next to sites of ongoing field research. The renovations and enhancements will provide expanded opportunities for new and established researchers from around the world who use the Harvard Forest for state-of-the-art investigations into whole-plant biology and experimental plant ecology.
