Tropical Botany is an intensive course of study in the biology and systematics of tropical plants. Academic credits can apply. Conducted in collaboration with Florida International University, the International Center for Tropical Botany, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, and the Montgomery Botanical Center, the course is usually held in the summer.
This work-study internship is designed for college- and university-level students and other adults interested in expanding their knowledge of botanical garden operations for career purposes. Interns will work side-by-side with staff caring for and learning about the plant collections. Schedule includes on-the-ground introduction and training, lectures, or workshops by NTBG staff faculty on plant propagation, plant records/mapping, botany, ethnobotany, restoration ecology, conservation, and other plant-related topics.
