SBBG Research Associates

The Garden's Research Associate program dates back to the 1940s. It was established to further the research interests of SBBG, and capture opportunities for collaboration with professionals at other institutions. Over the years, collaborators have included faculty at UC Santa Barbara and UC Berkeley. Research Associates study topics as varied as lichens of California, evolution of angiosperms, and genetics of California pines.
