The laboratories, gardens, greenhouses, herbarium, and seedbank in the K.C. Irving Centre provide students and faculty with the tools and opportunity to conduct world class research at Acadia.
The focus of the Centre is on the ecology of the Acadian Forest Region and its associated wetlands, however collaboration with local industries and agricultural partners is encouraged to help solve local problems .
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 K.C. 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.
