Laura Weber Ploughe
I am a plant community and ecosystem ecologist with a general interest in how systems respond to climate change. Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. I am currently working on several reclamation projects that include soil amendments, such as biosolids, drought, and utilizing ecological principals for establishing diverse native plant communities. I received my PhD from Purdue University, where my research focused on climate change, specifically on precipitation changes, and the impacts on plant communities and ecosystem processes. I am also involved in an international experiment, DroughtNet.
