Teaching and research laboratories are located in a complex of four buildings on the south campus of the University of Georgia. Research support is also provided by facilities located at nearby Whitehall Forest including experimental fish ponds, white-tailed deer pens and wildlife laboratory, fisheries laboratories, the Aquatic Biotechnology and Environmental Lab, a tree nursery, modern greenhouses, a wood utilization and plant sciences building, the Pete Phillips Laboratory for Nutrient Cycling Science, and Flinchum’s Phoenix.
In addition, Warnell manages more than 24,000 acres of forest land located throughout the state. The different properties represent many of the unique habitats found in Georgia and support Warnell’s programs in research as well as teaching and outreach.
Since Warnell’s beginning in 1906, faculty have been conducting research in all aspects of forestry and forest management, and over time have added activities in water and soils resources, wildlife ecology and management, fisheries and aquaculture, and natural resources recreation and tourism. Research activities include not only laboratory experiments, field trials, and surveys; but also modeling, publication, and presentations at scientific conferences and workshops. These research activities are supported by state appropriated funding and extramural funds awarded to the faculty from federal agencies, private corporations and foundations, state agencies, international sources, and local governments.
