The Plant Growth Facilities (PGF) includes greenhouses, head house support areas, and environmental growth chambers. Although the PGF are available to the entire UCalgary community, they are used primarily by the Department of Biological Sciences.
Teaching and research greenhouses
The University of Calgary has approximately 4500 square footage of greenhouse space available for use by faculty in support of plant growth research and teaching. Contact staff for services. Service charges are assessed for all greenhouse users.
Plant growth chambers
Forty-six environmental growth chambers are owned and maintained by the Department of Biological Sciences. These are located on the third floor of the Science A building. Departmental chambers are, typically, assigned to departmental projects. If available, chambers may be assigned to researchers from other university departments. Fees are charged for use of growth chambers.
