Research ranges broadly across major scientific issues in the tropics, with research projects on tropical botany, ecosystems, behavior, genomics, and faunal assemblages. Because of Miami's unique location, we have several local resources available to faculty and students. On campus, we host the Gifford Arboretum, which students and faculty use for research, teaching and outreach. We also have close ties with the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, and the Abess Center for Ecosystem Science & Policy, where some of our graduate students receive support and a few of our faculty have adjunct appointments.
