Assistant Professor, Department of Forestry and Rangeland Stewardship, Colorado State University

Troy Ocheltree’s research aims to quantify the amount of water plants use through time and identify the different ‘strategies’ plants can utilize to survive droughts. A key component of this research is identifying how deep the roots of different plants can grow below the ground surface. His Fellowship will develop improved methods to quantify plant rooting depth without the need to dig up roots that can extend more than 10 feet below the soil surface.
