Biology: About Our Department

Biology Seminar Series

The Armstrong Campus Biology Department proudly announces our annual seminar series.  These seminars associated with our Research Methods course occur bi-weekly throughout the fall and spring semesters.  The series invites scientists from around the country to share their newest discoveries and ideas with our students. We cordially invite the entire Georgia Southern University  community to attend and encourage students to engage with our honored guests in post-seminar discussions.

Undergraduate Research

Are you interested in getting out in the field to work on cutting edge academic research in biology? Our faculty are engaged in a variety of interesting projects, many focusing on the wondrously diverse and unique ecology of our local salt marshes and coastal barrier islands.


The Georgia Southern University's Armstrong Campus Herbarium was founded in 1967 and is one of only ten active herbaria in the state of Georgia.  Our collection—which is predominantly regional with an emphasis on plants of coastal Georgia—includes more than 5000 specimens, representing over 1300 different species of flowering plants, gymnosperms, and ferns.  The collection continues to expand as a result of ongoing fieldwork and is organized according to evolutionary relationships.


The Armstrong Campus Biology Department Greenhouse is a 28' x 54' structure supplying living plant material to support many of the Biology Department laboratory courses, including General Biology, Plant Biology, Plant Physiology, and Horticulture.
