EBIO houses and supports facilities available for use by faculty and students for research, as well as several highly funded facilities for ongoing research. Additionally, affiliations with other departments and institutes provide access to even more research facilities available to faculty of students of CU Boulder.
Niwot Ridge Ameriflux Site
Located in a subalpine forest ecosystem just below the Continental Divide near Nederland, CO. The Ameiflux site focuses on carbon, water and energy exchanges between a subalpine forest and the atmosphere to provide a foundation for understanding forests and their possible sensitivity to nearby urban activities. Visit the Niwot Ridge AmeriFlux Website for more information.
CU Mountain Research Station
Located at 2900m (9500 ft) in the Front Range of the Colorado Rockies, the Mountain Research Station is an interdisciplinary facility of the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research providing research and education opportunities for scientists, students, and the general public. Look for classes offered at the Mountain Research station in the EBIO Undergraduate Courses page. CU Mountain Research Station Website
INSTAAR - The Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research
The Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) develops scientific knowledge of physical and biogeochemical environmental processes at local, regional and global scales, and applies this knowledge to improve society's awareness and understanding of natural and anthropogenic environmental change.
Explore science at the source with extensive animal and plant collections at the CU Museum. See incredible specimens from around the globe, hear famous artists and noted scholars speak about their work, or enjoy a roundtable discussion at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History.
MORPH - Molecular and Organismal Research in Plant History
MORPH is a Research Coordination Network in Historical Developmental Biology. The primary activities of the MORPH are to support training opportunities for students, post docs, and early career professors between organismic (neobotanical and paleobotanical) and molecular labs; and a series of annual meetings and symposia that focus on current topics in plant evo-devo.
