Teaching /Professional Interests
Dr. Ed DePuit is a range plant ecologist with primary expertise and interest in the areas of plant synecology, range improvements and rehabilitation/restoration of drastically disturbed lands. Within these areas, the foci of past/future research has been and remains on improved understanding of basic ecological processes (both vegetational and edaphic) within rangeland ecosystems, and the manipulation of such processes through applied management to attain natural resource goals.
