About Dr. Gordon Rees

Gordon received his B.S. in Environmental Soil Science from Brigham Young University, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Soils and Biogeochemistry from UC Davis. His doctoral research focused on the effect of soil mineralogy on the plant-availability of soil potassium. His experience also includes morphological characterization and land use evaluation of soils across California forest and range ecosystems, soil carbon isotope analysis for archaeological applications around ancient Mayan sites in Guatemala, digital soil mapping, and analysis of soil micromorphology using atomic force microscopy.

Gordon's teaching includes courses on introductory soils, soil morphology, forest and range soils, and soil judging.
