Sustaining the natural world begins with understanding it. Talented researchers and keen students use advanced equipment at the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre to discover the workings of the natural world and investigate ways in which it can be preserved.
Student and Faculty Research Previews
Research is a slow process, often taking many months or even years before it has progressed to the stage where results can be presented at conferences or in publications. To help inform the public and other students of the research that is being conducted In the KC Irving Centre, we ask researchers using the facility to prepare small informative posters, highlighting the nature of their early stage research projects. While the research is ongoing, the posters are available for viewing in the greenhouse corridor on the upper level, and in the research corridor on the lower level. The posters are archived here:
