The Botanic Garden hosts this facility on behalf of the Department of Plant Sciences. The structure uses laminated curved wooden beams as the main support to create a large interior space that houses a series of controlled growing environments or Growth Cabinets.
The growing conditions within each Cabinet can be carefully controlled, from day length, light intensity, temperature and even the level of carbon dioxide. This enables plants to be grown under constant conditions, altered as necessary so to understand the various responses of the plants being grown.
This facility is not open to the public.
