|KBS Field Labs|
A lakeside laboratory, which was the original estate boathouse located on Gull Lake, was renovated in 1980 to provide year-round research space for visiting and resident researchers and includes a wet laboratory and dry laboratory on the ground level, and a dry laboratory and research cubicles on the upper level. Offices and labs in this building are connected to the KBS fiber optic backbone.
Two additional field laboratories are also available on site. These winterized laboratories were developed to provide convenient access and support for sampling the diverse habitats available at KBS. They include the Plant Ecology Lab, adjacent to a series of old fields, and the Pond Lab, adjacent to the experimental pond facility.
