The Forest Ecophysiology Laboratory and Forestry (lefs), ESALQ / USP, is a laboratory established to facilitate research related to ecophysiological aspects of the development of planted forests, with production purposes or restoration
The Genetic and Biotechnology Forest Resources Laboratory, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Weber Antonio Neves Amaral, is dedicated to forestry studies at the molecular genetic level and in genetic conservation of plant biodiversity through the application of modern technologies for improvement and crop production.
The Forest Hydrology Laboratory (LHF) aims to contribute to the understanding of the relationship between forests and water and how forest management can influence these relationships. Therefore, conducts studies to identify the effects of forestry activities on the hydrological functioning of watersheds. These studies also involve monitoring and improvement of hydrological indicators that serve as reference in the search for good management.
