Welcome to the Wyoming Soil Resource Webpage. Our research and extension projects focus on nutrient cycling in natural, disturbed, and agricultural settings from the perspective of landscape and soil organic matter dynamics. We are interested in learning how interactions among landscapes, plant communities, and land use affect resiliency and degradation-recovery processes as applied to on-the-ground ecological restoration and sustainable management.
We are most interested in using applied research as an extension tool. Engaging land owners, agency managers, conservationists, and others in planning and implementing problem-solving research provides the most effective learning situations for both researchers and managers. It also ensures relevant and practical results that address real production and management issues.
