Sarkaria Arthropod Research Laboratory (SARL)
The Sarkaria Arthropod Research Laboratory (SARL) provides modern labs and greenhouses for Cornell researchers, who work with insects. The ever increasing problems associated with arthropod pests, fueled by a rapidly changing climate, call for creative solutions based on sound science. From rearing insects as biological control agents to enhancing pest resistance in field crops, SARL offers the facilities needed to support that research.
