As an eco-physiologist, Troy Ocheltree’s research focuses on how different plants respond to the changes in their environment, specifically their response to drought and tolerance to fire.
“I’m most interested in trying to push plants to their extreme and figure out what it takes to cross that threshold between a live plant and a dead plant,” said Ocheltree, assistant professor in the Forest and Rangeland Stewardship Department at CSU, in an episode of the Warner College podcast Tune Into Nature hosted by WCNR students Becky Barbier and Kelley Sinning.
Listen in as Ocheltree explains how plants can be more resilient in touch climate times.
