Many student organizations on the UF campus are committed to work/research in Biodiversity. We encourage student organizations to submit information on your organization to UF Biolink at https://ufbiolink.squarespace.com/studentorg-submissions/ so that we may add your organization to our list of student organizations engaging with issues of biodiversity.
