RESEARCH GREENHOUSES: Space Request & Supplies


In order to use any space in greenhouses or environmental chambers, you must submit a Space Request form. Before beginning an experiment this form must be completed. Email Jim Velzy to request a space request form. This is a google doc you will be able to access throughout your experiement. You will need to meet with the research staff to discuss your experiment and clarify your goals and needs before setting up your project in the facility. In addition please be familiar with the Information for Researchers which outlines greenhouse staff responsibilities as well as researcher requirements.
