Adjunct/Courtesy Faculty: Plant Biology

Adjunct and Courtesy Faculty have primary affiliations with other sections in the School of Integrative Plant Science, other departments at Cornell, USDA-ARS, or at The Boyce Thompson Institute. These faculty are members of the Graduate Field of Plant Biology and as such can advise graduate students and serve on graduate student committees
