Plant Ecophysiology Research


Dr. Angell is a Rangeland Scientist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service in Burns, Oregon. He received his BS (1974) in Wildlife and Fisheries Management and MS (1978) in Agronomy from Kansas State University, and PhD (1983) in Rangeland Ecology and Management from Texas A&M University. He joined the research group at the Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center in 1982. His current research interest is focused in two general areas; grazing and fertility management on native meadows, and the response of plants to environmental change and anthropogenic disturbances.

The current focus of Dr. Angell's research includes the study of carbon flux dynamics on sagebrush steppe rangeland as influenced by annual climatic variation and managerial inputs. Prescribed burning, responses of plants to altered precipitation distribution, grazing influences on meadow vegetation and plant fertilization are topics included in his research.
