Amberjack Tagging Study

Our overall goal is to examine the seasonal pattern and rates of movement of greater amberjack (Seriola dumerili) in the Gulf of Mexico and to determine the potential mixing rate of the Gulf of Mexico greater amberjack stock with the South Atlantic greater amberjack stock, especially in known spawning areas off southern Florida.

Aquatic Animal Health

There is a vast range of research that directly and indirectly benefits aquatic animals, from invertebrates to marine mammals, as well as their environments. The aquatic animal health program at the University of Florida contributes to our better understanding and management of aquatic species through basic and applied research.

The Center for Subtropical Agroforestry

The Center for Subtropical Agroforestry (CSTAF) is a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional initiative established within the School of Forest Resources and Conservation (SFRC) to undertake activities in research, extension, and education and training related to agroforestry. 

Cooperative Forest Genetics Research Program

The Cooperative Forest Genetics Research Program (CFGRP) is a research cooperative whose members include the University of Florida, IFAS, School of Forest Resources and Conservation, forest industrial and state agencies as cooperative members. Our mission is to develop genetically improved varieties of southern pines, provide technical assistance and conduct supportive research for our members.

Conserved Forest Ecosystems: Outreach & Research (CFEOR)

A cooperative comprised of public, private, non-government organizations, landowners that own or control Florida forest lands as well as University of Florida faculty members who together work to develop and disseminate knowledge needed to conserve and manage Florida's forests as healthy, working ecosystems that provide social, ecological and economic benefits on a sustainable basis.

Fire Science

The Fire Science Lab is the only facility in Florida dedicated specifically to fire science and fire ecology education and research. 

Florida Lakewatch

Florida LAKEWATCH is a volunteer citizen lake monitoring program that facilitates "hands-on" citizen participation in the management of Florida lakes, rivers and coastal sites through monthly monitoring activities.

Florida Rivers Research Lab

The primary purpose of the lab is to help resource managers develop effective  policies for managing riverine and near-shore aquatic resources. 

Forest Ecophysiology

The forest ecophysiology research program focuses on quantifying physiological and structural controls over carbon and water fluxes in forest trees and forest ecosystems. 


Forest Biology Research Cooperative

An integrated university-industry cooperative dedicated to optimizing the productivity, health and sustainability of intensively managed southern pine forest ecosystems.

Forest Biotechnology

Research in the area of tree functional genomics, to understand how genes function to create phenotypes, or traits.

Forest Ecology & Ecosystem Restoration Lab (FEER Lab)

The FEER Lab explores ways to make managed forested ecosystems ecologically sustainable and ways to restore damaged or degraded forest ecosystems.

Forest Hydrology

Focuses on watershed systems, with an emphasis on fluxes of water, carbon and nutrients within and between aquatic systems and their surroundings, and the role of biological processes in regulating those fluxes.

Freshwater Fisheries Ecology

Research on fish population and community responses to changes in fishing mortality, habitat, and species interactions.


The Forest Genomics Lab group at the University of Florida studies genetic traits at the genomic, cellular, and molecular levels.

Integrative Fisheries Science

Integrative-interdisciplinary research in support of the sustainable use of living aquatic resources.

Tropical Aquaculture Laboratory

The mission of the Tropical Aquaculture Laboratory is to enhance the understanding of tropical, ornamental aquaculture through research and education.  The Laboratory performs applied research, fish disease diagnostic services, and extension education programs and promotes professionalism in Florida's tropical aquaculture industry.

Tropical Forestry Program

Focuses on advancement and application of the ecological sciences to support conservation of neotropical ecosystems through sustainable use.

Urban Forestry

The urban and community forestry lab conducts research to better understand the ecosystem services provided by urban forest ecosystems and the impacts of hurricanes, invasive plants, and urbanization on forests and human settlements.
