About the Coastal Biology Program

The University of North Florida department of Biology Flagship Program in Coastal Biology was established in October 2006.  It is one of four Flagship Program established by President John A.Delaney.  The geographic location of the University of North Florida and the current areas of faculty expertise make the Flagship Coastal Biology Program well suited to be a center of excellence in the study of coastal ecosystems.  Coastal ecosystem studies encompass a broad range of habitats from oceanic and marine habitats to freshwater lakes and rivers.


The campus is uniquely situated near the Atlantic Ocean, the St. Johns River, and the Intracoastal Waterway. All of these bodies of water and their associated coastal habitats lie within 15 miles of campus. No other university in the country has all of these coastal habitats in such close proximity.
