The "Brackenridge Field Laboratory" takes an inside look at the University of Texas research station that is in danger of being re-developed into a commercial and “more valuable” piece of property. Established in 1967, the Brackenridge Field Laboratory allows scientists and students from U.T. to collect data on animal and plant life in their natural habitats – not in an isolated laboratory. Larry Gilbert, a biologist and professor, explains how the uncultivated land is being used for scientific experiments and observation, making the case for the research station’s value to both the University of Texas, and to the planet.
