A LIVING LABORATORY

Since 1931, the Duke Forest has provided research opportunities for Duke University faculty and students in the fields of forestry, botany, zoology, and environmental science.  Today the Forest is also used by local universities, as well as universities and institutions across the country, to study natural resource, environmental, ecological, and earth science issues.  These include both short and long-term research projects covering such diverse topics as plant ecology, invertebrate zoology, forest economics, and global climate change.
