The University of Toledo's Lake Erie Center is an interdisciplinary research and education center dedicated to solving environmental problems at the land-water interface and bay-lake exchanges in the Great Lakes - the world's largest freshwater ecosystem. The Lake Erie Center is an integral environmental resource at The University of Toledo and is located in the northwestern corner of Ohio's Maumee Bay State Park. Research at the Lake Erie Center explores the linkages among land use, aquatic resources, water quality, sustainable living and human health - using the Maumee River and Bay and its key influence on the western Lake Erie Basin as a model. The Lake Erie Center assembles within a single facility programs and expertise in aquatic conservation, bioremediation and restoration, coastal zone processes, environmental chemistry and hydrology, ecology and ecosystem management, fishery genetics, geography and land use planning, limnology, remote sensing, and environmental and health monitoring.
The University of Toledo's Stranahan Arboretum is a 47-acre site, about a 10 minute drive from the main campus, that consists of cultivated ornamental trees, rolling lawns, natural woods, ponds, wetlands and prairie. It serves as one of the Department of Environmental Science's field sites for environmental education and research. Both graduate and undergraduate courses in ecology and geology use the Arboretum as an outdoor laboratory. It also hosts a number of educational programs for area school students (K-12) throughout the year.
The Plant Science Research Center (PSRC) undertakes basic research in plant biology with an emphasis on plant molecular biology, nutrition, pathology, bioremediation, and ecology. The PSRC instructs students from undergraduate through post-doctoral levels; develops, in collaboration with other academic, government and industrial partners, technologies for transfer to the public and private sectors; and serves as a regional and global resource for research in the plant sciences.
