Lynn E. Sollenberger


“My research is focused on grassland agroecosystems and emphasizes developing new knowledge in the areas of ecosystem services, sustainable production, and interactions of plants, animals, and the environment. I further seek to apply these principles to develop new technology to support statewide and regional livestock industries.”
