Cait Rottler, Ph.D.

Dr. Cait Rottler is a Ph.D. graduate of the University of Wyoming in Laramie, WY, where she did her dissertation on the effects of well pad reclamation on plant communities, soil organic matter, and green biomass in big sagebrush ecosystems. Cait received her B.S. in Biology at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM, where she was born and raised. As the Climate Hub Fellow, Cait will be pursuing research to better understand how different agricultural and grazing practices impact soil health indicators. She is broadly interested in interactions between human disturbance, climate change, and rangeland health, and in better understanding the responses of different aspects of ecosystem function to disturbance and climate change.
