Jane Mangold

Assistant Professor; Ph.D. 2004,Land Resources and Environmental Sciences, Montana State University; M.S. 1997, Abused Land Rehabilitation, Montana State University,. B.S., 1994 Biology with Secondary Education Certification, Iowa State University.

Jane's interests include: working with Extension agents, public land managers, and land owners to develop range- and wild-land integrative invasive plant management that is based on our best understanding of ecology; Research interests include revegetation of weed-infested range and wild land; competition for resources between native and nonindigenous, invasive plants, and increasing native diversity in old-fields.
