Body: 

Auburn University’s Forestry & Wildlife Sciences Building provides state-of-the-art classrooms and research facilities in a structure that demonstrates sustainable design principles. The building will house “The Center for Forest Sustainability,” one of the seven Peaks of Excellence research centers at Auburn. The building is the first project on the Auburn campus to use the USGBC LEED system to benchmark the design process. The building’s research labs are designed to work in the areas of applied biology, nursery management, silviculture, and vegetation control; fundamental biological studies emphasizing physiology and ecology; biometrics emphasizing growth and yield of plantations and natural stands; forest engineering and evaluation of systems for mechanized harvesting and site preparation; forest economics emphasizing resource analysis, evaluation of forest practices, and forest policy analysis; and forest products technology and fundamental wood science.
