The Sevilleta Education and Research Facility (SERF), completed in 2008, is a 20,000 sq ft building containing three large laboratory spaces dedicated to research and training in areas ranging from molecular ecology and evolution to plant and animal physiological ecology and systematics. One of these laboratories is a multipurpose space that is frequently used for classroom instruction, microscopy, and large-scale plant and soils processing. Additional smaller laboratory spaces are used for specimen handling and collections. One of the laboratories houses a quantitative nuclear magnetic resonance system (QMR), used by animal physiologists for the non-invasive study of the physiological status of small animals quantified in terms of lipid, lean muscle, and water composition.
