Center for Cedar Glade Studies
The Department of Biology's Center for Cedar Glade Studies was founded in 2005 with support from Senator Bart Gordon and the Environmental Protection Agency. Limestone cedar glades are unique to Middle Tennessee and are defined by open limestone rock, surrounded by redcedar. More than 23 species of endemic plants occur in glades; one federally listed species known as Pyne's ground plum only occurs in Rutherford county, about 5 miles from MTSU. For more information about limestone glades, visit Center for Cedar Glade Studies.
