Data Center Description
The entomology and plant pathology faculty, staff and graduate students at Auburn University are primarily housed in Funchess Hall, Extension Hall, and the Life Sciences Building. These buildings provide space for offices, research and teaching laboratories, the entomology musuem, the Biological Control Institute, insect rearing rooms, photographic darkroom and computer facilities.
Other on-campus research facilities include greenhouses, an insectary, the Plant Diagnostic Lab, the Pesticide Research Facility, the Imported Fire Ant Laboratory, the Insect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Laboratory, Mycology Laboratory, Fescue Diagnostic Laboratory , electron microscopy laboratories, the Nuclear Science Center, USDA Regional Parasite Research Laboratory, and the University Library.
Research on insects and diseases affecting crops and animal production receives support at 15 Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station substations located in a diversity of habitats throughout the state. Research in tropical environments is possible through Auburn University's faculty and student exchange agreements with universities in Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Honduras. Auburn University is also a member of the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) and thus offers students the opportunity to participate in activities of that organization.
