Title: Gluonic excitations in the hadronic spectrum

QCD at low energy features a gluonic field that is strongly coupled to itself and to quarks. I will present a summary of what we know about the role that excitations of the gluonic field play in determining the spectrum of meson resonances. Recent studies using lattice techniques have suggested a phenomenology of gluonic excitations within QCD that leads to hybrid mesons with both exotic and non-exotic quantum numbers. I will discuss these calculations and describe their relationship to current experimental knowledge and to forthcoming experiments at Jefferson Lab and elsewhere.
