This tract of 35 acres is an active research site for students to study the effects of habitat fragmentation on wildlife and ecosystem services provided by small, urban forests. The site is home to the longest continuous study on the population health of Wood Thrush.
The complex consists of a suite of growth chambers and glass house facilities. In addition to diverse faculty research and plant production, students can learn horticulture, as well as professional plant production within the greenhouse environment.
As homebase for the College, Townsend houses four departments - Animal and Food Sciences, Plant and Soil Sciences, Applied Economics and Statistics, and Entomology and Wildlife Ecology. In addition, UD Cooperative Extension connects UD research with industry professionals and community members.
As a research center, a laboratory, and a classroom, the gardens contribute to an understanding of the changing relationships between plants and people through education, extension, research, and community support.
This area provides facilities for characterization of new diseases, vaccine development, the testing of "pre" and "pro" biotics and nutraceuticals to reduce the use of antibiotics, to improve gut health, improve production and sustainability.
