The Khoddamzadeh Lab for Conservation & Sustainable Horticulture is a research group directed by Dr. Amir Khoddamzadeh within the Institute of Environment at Florida International University (FIU).
The lab's research in sustainable and conservation horticulture science broadly covers how to integrate the science and the stakeholders’ need to address the real challenges associated with climate change and species endangerment.
This multidisciplinary research addresses a range of topics including:
- In-vitro propagation (tissue culture) and gene-banking (cryopreservation) of flowers, ornamentals, and endangered plants
- Seed technology and biotechnology assessments
- Optical non-destructive handheld sensor technology for sustainable water and fertilizer management of horticultural crops
