Description: Plants are the keystone of all natural and managed ecosystems. Forestry industries, human and livestock health, and agriculture well being all depend on healthy plant communities and ecosystems. Plant Ecologists study the interactions among plants, between plants and the environment, and between soils, plants and animals. This research is applied to maintain or improve the environment and the health of ecosystems. In the Applied Plant Ecology major, students will learn how to apply ecological principles to ecosystems such as rangelands, forests, wetlands, and croplands for sustainable production.
