The Biology Department Greenhouses serve the faculty and students at the Boston Harbor campus by providing the ideal environment to learn about plants. Numerous collections of plants native to tropical, desert, and temperate climates are present for research and for demonstration of the diversity of the plant kingdom. The greenhouses are located on the fourth floor of the Science Center at the University of Massachusetts Boston harbor campus.
