The mission of the Department of Forestry at the University of Florida, Gainesville “is to provide high quality programs that develop and disseminate knowledge, and result in better understanding and management of forests and related natural resources.” There are close to 40 researchers in the department, including affiliate and adjunct faculty. The current research and instructional programs of the Department reflect the tremendous technological and socio‐economic changes that impact all areas of agriculture/forestry and natural resource management. Major research interests of the faculty include: using genetic engineering to improve stress hardiness and disease resistance; developing a more comprehensive understanding of all the physiological aspects of the resource including effects of disease and human impact such as acid deposition, biometric analysis, general biology and ecology of forest resources with particular emphasis on southern pines; studying the economic and policy factors affecting the forest industry, and exploring the use of mathematical modelling techniques.
