Dr. Steven Kannenberg
Steve grew up in Minnesota and attended St. Olaf College in southern Minnesota, where he developed a passion for plant ecology, climate change, and other environmental issues. Following college, he pursued a PhD at Indiana University, where his work focused on the strategies that trees use to cope with drought. He is currently at the University of Utah where his research explores the trajectory that forests follow after a drought: Do trees die, and if so, why? How do trees recover from drought, and how long does that take?
