International Center for Tropical Botany

The International Center for Tropical Botany (ICTB) was established as a collaboration between FIU and the National Tropical Botanic Garden (NTBG) to study tropical plants and the resources they provide. We provide research-based knowledge and tools to preserve and sustainably use tropical resources. Educating future generations of tropical plant biologists, we are located at the historical estate of plant explorer Dr. David Fairchild - The Kampong, one of NTBG’s five botanical gardens.
