Botany and Plant Ecology


  • Mission Statement

    The mission of the Botany and Plant Ecology Department at Weber State University is to create an environment for students from diverse backgrounds to blossom as scientists, to root themselves as ecologically conscious citizens, and to grow into thoughtful botanists.  We accomplish this by recognizing that botany is one of the few scientific disciplines that explicitly touches each culture; therefore, we strive to value and respect the diversity of cultural knowledge that shapes our understanding of the plant world. We offer a variety of high quality classroom, laboratory, and field experiences across the discipline. Our botany graduates find employment in academia, industry, or government.
