Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The Center for Biological Control was established as a partnership between Florida A&M University (FAMU), an 1890s school in the southeast area, and USDA/ARS/APHIS to foster research and student training focusing on ecologically-based solutions to insect and invasive weed challenges. An overview of the joint research, student training, extension and outreach activities between FAMU and USDA/ARS/CMAVE will be presented. At a special session of the Association of 1890s Research Directors symposium entitled "Fostering Research Partnership Opportunities between 1890 Faculty and USDA-ARS Scientists", collaboration between faculty, scientists, and staff including mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students will be highlighted.
