Kevin R. Brown

I am originally from Tri-Cities, Washington and graduated from Washington State University. Summer employment with the US Forest Service in Fairbanks sparked my interest in forest nutrition and eventually led to an MS degree in plant ecology from Oregon State University and a Ph.D. from Alberta, where I studied effects of CO2 enrichment and N supply on aspen and white spruce. I have continued to live in Canada and have worked as a researcher at UBC, with the Canadian Forest Service in Ontario, and as a research scientist with the BC Ministry of Forests, studying tree growth and physiology, nutrition, and responses to fertilization, much of which focused on deciduous broadleaved species. I currently consult on issues relating to forest nutrition and biology.
