Terrestrial Ecology Teaching Lab (2556 Dana)
This laboratory is designed to accommodate the wet lab teaching needs of all courses in Terrestrial Ecosystems. It currently is used to teach Soil Ecology, in which students use this laboratory space to conduct physical, chemical and biological analyses of soil samples collected in a wide range of terrestrial ecosystems. This laboratory contains an Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometer, which is used to determine the elemental composition of soil, plants as well as a wide range of environmental samples. It also contains hood space for the handling of hazardous materials and ample bench space for students to learn and conduct the analyses of soil and plant tissues.
