The newly built Biology Department's greenhouse encompasses 4,000 square feet and is located on the roof of the Integrated Science Center. The greenhouse houses student and faculty research projects, plants that are grown by staff and students to use in in courses, and a conservatory collection which provides examples of a variety of pantropical species in many different plant families demonstrating adaptations and special life forms.  Group tours of the facility can be arranged.  Call 757-221-1819 for more information.
