Abstract:
N.C. State University is home to one of only twelve phytotrons in the world. Phytotrons are environmental simulators that are capable of reproducing any global climate for the purpose of studying plant growth under various conditions. The 42,000 square foot facility, along with a sister facility at Duke University, make up the Southeastern Plant Environment Laboratories, or SEPEL. Approximately 60% of the building's 57 controlled environment spaces are currently used by graduate students hoping to eliminate southern corn blight.
