Highlands Biological Station is open to visitors. Masks are still required in the Nature Center, but are no longer required on campus, including the Botanical Garden. Highlands Biological Station is offering academic and public programming this summer. For the safety of the HBS summer community, before being permitted to work or study at HBS prospective summer students, teaching faculty, and researchers must provide documentation of (1) having received a Covid-19 vaccine or (2) a negative Covid-19 test taken within 3 days of planned arrival.

The Station’s research legacy is manifested in the lengthy record of scientific papers, graduate theses, dissertations and research internship reports stemming from work based at or otherwise facilitated by HBS. 

We are working to build and compile a complete database record of research products; below you will find research products since 2000.
